Conservative columnist David Brooks just went public again with his criticisms of Sarah Palin. “She’s a joke. I can’t take her seriously,” he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

The question other members of the press are asking is whether he will codify his statements in print at The New York Times this time around.

A month before last year’s presidential election Brooks admitted to a forum in Manhattan that Palin was “not even close” to qualified for higher office. However, he failed to reveal the opinion in multiple columns after the comment. At the time, he was called “frighteningly dishonest” by Editor & Publisher’s Greg Mitchell, who suggested he should debate himself on PBS.

There was little debate, however, on This Week Sunday. The other conservative on the panel with Brooks, George Will, isn’t buying into the Palin frenzy either.

Will said he thinks Republicans can do better. “Some conservatives think they have found in Sarah Palin a Republican William Jennings Bryan,” he said. “Now, why would they want someone who lost the presidency three times?”

Brooks may have also alluded to his feelings about Mike Huckabee’s presidential hopes, adding, “The idea that this potential talk show host is considered seriously for the Republican nomination, believe me, it will never happen.

“Republican primary voters are not going to elect a talk show host,” he said.

See the video of Brooks where the story was originally published on The Raw Story.
