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 a line that is either funny, ridiculous, strange, accidentally intelligent or well-written.

Everybody’s been talking about David Brooks’s column today, “I Miss Barack Obama,” in which he concludes:

Obama radiates an ethos of integrity, humanity, good manners and elegance that I’m beginning to miss, and that I suspect we will all miss a bit, regardless of who replaces him.

Hey, David Brooks, thank you for finally noticing in the ninth inning of his presidency that the president seems like a pretty good guy.
