WHERE DID YOU GO, WHITTAKER CHAMBERS?:

Don’t Call Her ‘Harriet’: There’s more to Palin than her plumbing. (Kathryn Jean Lopez, 9/01/08, National Review)

If the McCain campaign had been adult about it, they would have made Mitt Romney the vice-presidential nominee. He made a lot of sense as McCain’s Number Two. He wins the experience debate, having much more than Joe Biden — he’s been an executive in the corporate world and in the political world, and he cleaned, fixed, and ran the Olympics in Salt Lake. He would have helped electorally, particularly in Michigan. And he would have handled some blind spots for the McCain administration, most especially on the economy. Despite some campaigns against him, he’d have reassured many on the Right who saw him as a full-spectrum conservative, as National Review did.

And they wonder why the base doesn't listen to them?

Mr. Romney, who was pro-abortion until he decided he might be presidential material was the only guy under consideration who could have done Maverick as much damage as Joe Lieberman.
