The Corner

The one and only.

Exit, Pursued By Elephant



Text  



My congratulations to Matthew Franck et al. for having successfully chased Richard Grenell out of the Romney campaign, handing the Democrats a nice little example of Republicans’ elevating their sexual obsessions over foreign policy (for Pete’s sake). I do hope that Mr. Romney extends the appropriate gratitude for the manufactured controversy.

As Haley Barbour observed: “Purity in politics is a loser; unity in politics is a winner.  . . . If you had to agree with Haley Barbour on every issue, it would be a mighty small party. That’s just a fact, and we need people to understand that at the end of the day, Reagan was right: A person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is your friend and ally, not some 20 percent traitor.”

I suppose Haley Barbour forgot to include the no-homo caveat. Perhaps Roger Chillingsworth will take the job.
