Every now and then, my lifelong Republican evangelical Christian calls me with his take on politics. He usually fancies himself an independent, but obviously is not, until tonight. His words to me, verbatim: "I'm sick. I'm done with em [the Republicans]. They can't think we're that stupid."

We'll see. The pundit reaction is as I expected, but the speech more partisan and more about revving up cultural divides than I had anticipated. I think it will help enthuse the Christianist base. But I didn't see tonight as offering any substantive policy reason to vote for McCain. In the end, people are interested in issues, aren't they? And drilling for oil and "victory" in Iraq do not seem to me to move the ball forward.
