The Corner

RJS

I wouldn’t be K-Lo if I didn’t end my Corner Friday with this paragraph from Window on The Week:

Pennsylvania’s junior senator, Republican Rick Santorum, lost his bid for reelection. In his concession, he graciously stepped aside, making no apologies for running a campaign focusing on the War on Terror — or the fight against Islamic Fascism, as he consistently calls it. He said, “People have asked . . . why didn’t you just talk about the projects you delivered or the things that you accomplished? My answer is that those are the things in the past, and what leaders are supposed to do is to talk about things that our country confronts in the future.” His campaign might not have been smart politics, but this is to the discredit of politics, not Santorum.  We wish him well, and hope that those who serve after him heed his words.
