David Brooks???

I say good riddance to David Brooks. In his piece today, he sounds like any other mainstream media leftist hack in excessive praise of the Obama transition and appointments so far.

[http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/21/opinion/21brooks.html?_r=1&ref=opinion]

Where exactly is the conservative in this so called conservative columnist?

The Obama appointments from my (hopefully conservative) perspective have been awful. They have been extremely liberal. They have been Washington insiders (Change??). They have been Clinton people (Change?). The fact that he can applaud these says to me he is gone forever.

Unfortunately he will continue to call himself a conservative columnist/commentator and this will encourage the media and those on the left to ask all of the “true conservatives” to be more like him.

More like him? Are you kidding me? If the conservatives were more like him we would have no points of difference at all from the center left.

Good riddance David.
