I consider Jim Antle a friend. He’s one of the best political writers in Washington and he was a kind, considerate editor for me and many others during his time at TAS. The young writers he now mentors at the Daily Caller are fortunate for his guidance.
However, I think he’s mistaken to suggest that there’s a libertarian case for supporting Mitch McConnell. I agree with Jim that McConnell has defended free speech against stifling campaign finance reform laws. The National Journal piece Jim links offers a fair accounting of McConnell’s mastery of parliamentarian procedure and his willingness to fight ObamaCare behind closed doors. Fair enough.
