Damn. Back when everybody was speculating about the crucial (okay, not really) Brownback primary, I half-wrote a post making the case that he should endorse McCain - on Ponnuru/O'Beirne grounds, as well as some others - and then never finished it. And now he goes and does it. The moral: Always finish your blog posts. (A profound life lesson, I know.)

Anyway, good for him for not endorsing Giuliani, unlike some embarrassments I can think of.
