Conservative Journalist No Longer Conservative Enough for Radio Show


David Frum, the Republican journalist and former George W. Bush speechwriter, has stepped down as the token righty on the public radio program Marketplace after realizing that his “views are not very representative of the conservative mainstream,” including on issues such as “healthcare reform, monetary policy, social spending to aid the unemployed, and — soon — the American response to the euro crisis.” He did not mention Herman Cain by name.
