HAPPY NEW YEAR David Brooks tries something resembling honesty in his Tuesday column. (Of course, his approach has the added benefit of making the case for his chosen candidate, Sen. John McCain.)

The problem with Brooks isn't that he's a committed partisan. It's that his desire to serve "the team" nearly always trumps his interest in delivering candid commentary.

As today's piece shows, he can write intelligently about politics when he feels like it.
