A Conservative's Defense Of Marco Rubio's Comments On Age of Earth
The NY Times has two conservative op-ed writers to counter Paul Krugman's liberal op-eds. Ross Douthat and David Brooks fill that role. They are both well educated and articulate. Their job is to do what Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Fox News etc. etc. do for the less well educated public. They sell conservative ideology to the better educated readers of the NY Times. They hold their noses while pretending that the Republican party reflects their ideology. This is Douthat's op-ed, which was written to counter Paul Krugman's op-ed posted above. Judging by the comments below, Douthat's op-ed, he was not as successful as he would have liked. It would, however, go over well in other parts of the country.
