New York Times Columnist Line of the Day

If you frequent this here premier “web log,” there’s a good chance you may once or twice have read the New York Times op-ed page. You might even recognize the names of the columnists, who every day spout the most conventionally wise of the conventional wisdom. This is a feature that is dedicated to these folks, highlighting one line that is either funny, ridiculous, strange, or actually intelligent or well-written.

Surprise: Today’s is not from David Brooks! It’s from Frank Bruni, who does the Lord’s work in his column today “Trump-ward, Christian Soldiers?” writing:

The holy rollers are smiling upon the high roller. And they’re proving, yet again, how selective and incoherent the religiosity of many in the party’s God squad is.

Would have been happier if they’d cut the lame hair joke, but otherwise, good work.
