A couple of months ago it was fashionable for many ticked-off conservatives to announce that they were so frustrated with the Republican Congress that they were going to stay home on election day. Tony Blankley writes today about the idiocy of that approach. The money quote:
"This current conservative petulance -- if it actually occurs on Nov. 7 -- will increase the chances of electing Hillary, or worse (if such a thing is possible) in 2008.Conservatives, please listen Mr. Blankley.
"There is no rational policy or political basis for conservatives not voting. I'm not sure the country can take the current Democratic mob in power for long.
"A realist once observed that the history of mankind is little more than the triumph of the heartless over the mindless. The Democrats are obviously heartless.
"Conservatives must guard against falling into the category of the mindless. Ignore your heartfelt peevements, use your brains and vote."
