Throughout his radio show yesterday, Hugh Hewitt kept emphasizing that true conservatives despised John McCain, that true conservatives must vote for Mitt Romney. He repeatedly cited the examples of Rush Limbaugh and James Dobson, who insisted they'd never vote for McCain. To stick to one's principles was honorable, Churchillian, great, and Hewitt's message was clear: everyone should do the same.
So what was the title o Baby Hewie's post-primary post this morning?
Seven Reasons To Support The GOP's Nominee
“Romney and Huckabee ought to begin to note Senator McCain's lead and urge their followers to recognize that if they cannot come back they and their followers will have to come in and join the party's eventual nominee,” Baby Hewie wrote, and damn if those words don't clash with his railings yesterday. Really, Hugh: we actually thought you really were a principled person, that you had eclipsed your days as a GOP hack. Thanks for clarifying!
