Just To Be Clear

NR is an institution — and one that pays my light bill to boot. As an institution it comes to corporate — as in collective or institutional — decisions. So while I found the NR Editorial endorsement of Romney cogent and persuasive in parts, it does not reflect my own personal assessment of the race or what would be best for conservatism, the GOP or, much more importantly, America. So who am I for? Nobody quite yet, though I’m against quite a few folks. But we can discuss that later.

Still, if you’re curious, my hope of all hopes remains that we have a brokered convention and Phil Gramm gets nominated. I’m only sort of kidding.
