A social conservative leader friend tells me she has gotten her first “aren’t values voters the problem?” calls. The MSM will try to claim this and blame social conservatives, led by Sarah Palin. The McCain campaign, if it should lose, may encourage this.
This would be wrong.The Republican party has been a mess. It doesn’t know what it is about. That accounts for losses tonight, not people who oppose abortion.
It will be fascinating if Prop 8 wins and they still argue this.
Don’t blame Palin. (And when Palin is blamed, do not blame Romney.)
