Re: Values

There have been so many stories on the election and the role of the values vote. I think this piece from The London Times, “It’s family values, stupid,” is one of the very best. I especially like the portrayal of social conservatives. This is not the usual caricature and vilification. I don’t know if the media will ever stop feeding us simplistic propaganda about “values voters.” But here, at last, is an example of fair treatment. And here is a great column by Jeff Jacoby on same-sex marriage and the election. While we’re at it, check out this fine piece by John Leo. I have only one disagreement with Leo. I hope the Democrats follow Thomas Frank’s advice. And Democrats, please, please nominate Hillary in 2008. I’m depending on you.
