Really enjoyed this Washington Examiner column by Gene Healy naming the worst op-eds of 2011. I’m sure he had a lot to choose from, but he seems to have selected well. I especially liked his knock on David Brooks for his New York Times column, “The Modesty Manifesto:”
This piece from the Times’s resident “National Greatness Conservative,” won largely on the strength of one line: “Our lives are given meaning by the service we supply to the nation.” What can you say? Sounds better in the original German?
Probably does, at that. But read the whole thing here.
