Can sane conservatism be saved?
I'm not really a fan of Andrew Sullivan but he has a pretty good piece today in UK Times about what's at stake on Tuesday. Here's the money quote.
We may get, in other words, sane conservatism back again. And it may require a big Democratic victory to do it. Given the level of denial in the White House, this is not really an election. It’s more like an intervention. To save Republicanism from Bush, to save Bush from himself, and to save the world from impending crisis.Of course, it's not exactly true. We lost our democracy on 9/11 when Bush declared his unitary powers, at least to himself, and it's more like only the Diebolds will decide. But he's right that all we can do is wait. Personally, I can't wait for it to be over.
But this is a democracy. Only the voters will decide. And we must wait.
