A Dodo of A Writer

(http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-brooks24mar24,0,3338954.story?track=tothtml)

Once more, I have to take great exception to Times’ columnist Rosa Brooks (see above link). But first, I am stupefied as to why the Los Angeles Times, an established and highly respected newspaper, continues to have a narrow-minded writer whose analytical skills rival any average college freshman’s on their payroll. We get it, Ms. Brooks, you have no use for President Bush and his administration. It’s time, to use a phrase in your liberal lexicon, to “move on”.

It is one thing to opine about the differences of philosophy you may have with the current administration. It is quite another to combine said philosophy with comments that denigrate those who are in opposition to you, particularly when it comes to the leaders of our country. By writing sophomoric lines such as, “I used to believe in the theory of evolution, but these days I'm having my doubts” and “We're losing because the cavemen in the Bush administration don't understand the difference between strength and bellicosity” undermines the credibility of your opinion among people, conservatives and liberals alike, who read the Times editorials for engaging and intellectual enlightenment. Qualities that you, Ms. Brooks, seem to lack.
