THE THING ABOUT BEING sTUPID...:

In McCain, Voters Force a Winner on the GOP (Susan Estrich, 1/31/08, Reral Clear Politics)

I have to hand it to the Republicans. They might not want the hand, but they deserve it. If things continue the way they’ve gone, they’re on the verge of nominating the candidate many of them like least and many of my friends like most as their nominee for president.

Which is to say, they’ve done the right thing, right if you care about winning, that is, not to mention the country’s best interest, as opposed to ideological purity.


...is you always end up seeming smart in the long run.

I wonder if Susan Estrich would consider Hillary's candidacy (and now Bill's) in the 'country's best interest'.

She has had a weird love-hate thing with the Clintons for quite a while.

OJ,

As my friends over at Illinois Review (www.illinoisreview.com) become ever more apoplectic over McCain...

(I myself will barely vote for him)

...I simply have to chuckle in admiration over your steadfastness (and accuracy re: McCain).

Though there are some possible pitfalls and reversals that could pop up, it certainly is fun to watch heads explode when I remind them that not only is McCain the nominee, but almost certainly the next president.
