The Corner

Over the Top

Jonah, I may be a one-woman over-the-top machine, but I think what you’ve been seeing in The Corner and elsewhere is folks taking what limited time is left to air concerns and differences. And, yes, take sides. If you think Romney’s the conservative guy with real leadership skills, say so and say why. If you think it’s McCain, likewise. It’s all going to be over soon so now is the time. It will not last forever.

I also think that there’s been some disagreement in The Corner, which indicates where conservatives are. Debate is good and healthy. There’s been a post or two that I do think was inappropriate, and I’ve said so. But generally speaking, I wouldn’t caricature the state of the debate.  Fact is, there’s no rally to one candidate. Though one certainly has the mo right now — and yes, he may keep it, but it’s certainly not a sealed deal.

Speaking of mo: I hear there are some endorsements coming down this morning — one from the Denver Post, for instance – and they’re not all for McCain this time, for what it’s worth.
