Powerline’s John Hinderaker:

If there are conservatives who sincerely believe that it makes little difference whether the Executive Branch is run by John McCain or Barack Obama, they are entitled to sit out the election. And if they’re going to sit it out, I’d appreciate it if they would sit it out entirely; in other words, stop attacking McCain for his “impurities.”

I have been reading Robin Wright’s Dreams and Shadows: The Future of the Middle East. Wright thinks the invasion of Iraq was a huge disaster, but her reporting on the struggles erupting across the region underscore just how crucial these next few years –weeks?– are in the effort to defeat radical jihadism. Senator McCain understands the stakes and believes in winning the war. No matter the number or intensity of the other disagreements he has with conservatives, this ought to be enough to bring the base on board.

If it isn’t, then I am with John: Sit it out. Entirely.
