Douthatism, Redux
by

Ross Douthat on the debate:

I was gratified by the approach McCain took . . . and yes, by the promise to buy up home mortgages, which was exactly the kind of blatantly panderish thing McCain needs to do if he wants to actually win this thing.

Michelle Malkin has an entire thread devoted to what a wretched idea this is, as policy. As to its idiocy as politics, if the electorate wants socialism, they’ll elect the Democrat, so when a Republican advocates socialism, he might as well change his slogan to, “Vote Democrat.”

UPDATE: A reader e-mails Mark Steyn: “This election is over.” Warning: This is not a popular sentiment.
