Too bad. Too bad also that Thompson didn't do better in S. Carolina. Someday we will have a conservative that can articulate conservative principles and ideals in a manner that even many of the looney left can understand. Until then, we have to go with cheap imitations. Moderates like McCain are no help to the nation in the long haul. Just a step or two above the average Democrat. We have to do better. We have to jump hard on those who think they understand what conservatism is all about and then show by their distorted rhetoric that they have no idea.
Still, when crunch time comes, and some form of "conservative lite" is the party nominee, I will support him. There is not one Dem running that is worthy of the presidency, and this country deserves far better than what the Dems would do to America.
