David Brooks writes about an alleged secret deal offered to Frist by Reid - sacrifice some appeals court nominees in exchange for a promise not to filibuster the next Supreme court nominee - and argues that Frist was foolish to have allegedly "said he'd think about it, but so far he's let it drop." If David Brooks really believes what he wrote, then why would he kill the deal by making it public? Was someone else going to publicize it? As for the merits of the deal itself, Brooks himself lists and then ignores several strong reasons for Frist to reject Reid's offer.
