Ford vs. Carter again?

by
August 18th, 2008

Our electoral situation feels like the 1970’s again. McCain is Gerald Ford, Obama is Jimmy Carter with a college kid cool factor. His speech at Invesco will have a JFK-like media aura about it, and even many Republicans, especially in the party hierarchy, will join in the swooning.

Conservatives are in the wilderness for the time being, as Churchill, Thatcher, Reagan and every other political great often was.

Don’t give money to the Republican Party. Give it to your church and do what you can to help revitalize Christian faith in the U.S., beginning at home if necessary.

Conservative resurgence will not come without spiritual resurgence; conservatism and the national strength and identity it brings are fundamentally spiritual.

When we find faith again, we will find another Reagan. Not much else to talk about between now and November.

IF BAD CHRISTMAS SWEATERS COULD SING: John Andrews’ departure as director of Centennial Institute was heralded in a Jeannie Edwards-inspired parody of “No Place Like Home for the Holidays,” sung (if that’s the word) by some of his favorite students from the past seven years at a Dec. 10 ceremony with President Bill Armstrong looking on. Look here and zip through the gab for nutty musical ending.
