Very belatedly I notice from Crikey! that Tom Switzer, former opinion editor at the Australian, culture warrior, chum of Quadrant and the IPA, author of such brilliant columns as (re Cronulla) "Beach violence not a symptom of rampant racism", and the man who smeared Manning Clark as a Soviet agent, has become Brendan Nelson's chief of staff*.
Further comment seems unnecessary.
*Or some other thing in his office.
