Revelations 3:15

I have made no secret that I believe that John McCain and his fellow mushy moderates in the Senate are as big a threat to Conservative principles as any Democrat. Brendan Minter has a brilliant piece in today's WSJ noting that, due to the nature of majoritarian politics, McCain has had some legislative success by parlaying the few leftist Republicans. However, Minter observes that McCain's "maverick moderatism" encompasses the very political ideas that are causing the Democrats to lose votes.

Definitely worth a read because the defining struggle for the soul of GOP won't be with the Democrats, but with those who wear the Republican mantle without having the shoulders for it.
