David Brooks, one of the most prominent of Republican elites in the country, who has even been touted as President Obama's "favorite pundit," is calling on the donor class to rescue the party from the rabble. Game's over, voters: The oligarchs will decide this election. For that's what they are: a small, unbelievably wealthy group of the powerful and privileged who already have a tighter grip on our nation, its government, politics and economy than the rapacious robber barons of our first Gilded Age. Brooks and like-minded elites believe they must be trusted to do the right thing. Let them be the Deciderers.
