The former Bush speechwriter speaks:

“The people who defend [Sarah Palin] have already given up any serious thought of Republicans’ wielding governmental power anytime soon. . . . They have already moved to a position of pure cultural symbolic opposition to a new majority.

Frum’s ability to pick winning presidential candidates is not self-evident. As to his ability to determine exactly who would “be a terrible president” . . .
