The conservative mind (under the influence of reality)

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Even conservatives think Norm Coleman should give up. Well, at least one does -- National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru, one of the more sensible conservatives out there today (and I mean that as a compliment, barely), who writes:

If he keeps up the fight, he is likely to lose, unnecessarily deprive Minnesota of a second senator, end his political career seen as a sore loser, and hurt his party in a state that is eager for this fight to be over. His team has talked enough about further legal challenges that if he leaves now, he will get some points for grace. (Needless to say, that sentiment would not be universal.) But this is, I think, the last moment where he can exit with some dignity.

Some, but not much.
