Jim Geraghty has been trying to figure out who is behind an anonymous hit on RNC chairman candidate Ken Blackwell and includes Ohio Republicans on his list of suspects. Blackwell has long been hated by members of his state party establishment for the same reasons many conservatives like him. And there are other Republicans, some of them Blackwell admirers, who worry that his strategy for Republican success is too close to what worked in 2004 but failed in 2006, including in his own gubernatorial race. It remains to be seen whether his Conservative Resurgence Plan will allay those concerns or not.
Though while we’re on the subject of Blackwell, bloggers, and conservative credentials, I might as well say this: Blackwell’s reported 1976 vote for Jimmy Carter is now as far in the past as Ronald Reagan’s 1948 vote for Harry Truman was in 1980. A lot of reliable Reagan coalition members, including Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, voted Democratic in 1976. I think we can stop holding it against him.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
