Some Folks Won't Be Donning the Pantsuit--Updated!

While quite a portion of the righty blogosphere is doing the equivalent of holding their breath until they turn blue, there are some admirable folks behaving like adults.

First up is Ms Falconer's Cabana Boy over at the L-Dotters blog. I have been a member of since at least 2000 and can often remember coming across his interesting nickname and his intelligent thoughts in the comments. He's been battling the "I'll choke before I vote for McCain" element over there, with about the same success I've had.

I would ask my fellow McCain supporters to resist the urge to stick it to all the folks who have been on the wrong side of the ballot tonight and keep working hard at getting our guy elected. There's a difference between sticking up for your guy and taunting the opposition. I hope we can keep that in mind.

I confess, I have not always been good at that, but I'm going to make a sincere effort.

Update: Mrs G has always seemed more sensible than many of the commenters over there. This evening she has a picture on the front page of John McCain with the words, "Argue it round or argue it flat....looks like John is where it's at. Thanks, Lucianne!

Second, we go to Ben Domenech at RedState.

For me, it came down to three choices, made on three critical fronts: McCain’s decision to side with President Bush on the surge, with President Bush on Alito and Roberts, and against President Bush on the largest entitlement in the history of America. In each of these areas, we were and are agreed—and in each, McCain displayed the courage and patriotism he has always possessed—the strength of character to do what he believed was right, regardless of whether it was popular.

It's good to see Ben back blogging again. I was critical of him a couple years ago when he got caught plagiarizing, but he's a solid, young, intelligent conservative with some genuine writing skill, as this piece shows.

And Roger L. Simon remarks on McCain Derangement Syndrome:

I heard two examples of it this evening - one from my friend Hugh Hewitt, whose rage against McCain today on Wolf Blitzer's CNN show made the hair curl on my bald head and later, on the Larry Elder Show, I listened in as a woman caller excoriated McCain as no war hero even though she knew the Senator had spent five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, was tortured, had his bones broken yet stayed with the other troops when offered a chance to leave, etc. Even Elder was appalled at the woman, though Larry is no McCain supporter.

Hewitt's a great entertainer, but he's clearly not learned the lesson: That you cannot lead people where they don't already want to go.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
