James P. Pinkerton promoted healthy alternatives, and Mark Skousen trumpeted Friedrich Hayek. Jordan Bloom expounded on copyright, Scott McConnell wondered how America could allow Romney to run for president, and Scott Galupo hoped Romney gets spat out. Galupo got the point on inequality, and clung to the conventional wisdom, while Samuel Goldman dismissed election fraud. Rod Dreher appreciated the Mayberry ideal, decided that Wall Street always wins, missed Mike Huckabee, considered the sixties, and humbled the meritocracy.
William D. Hartung noticed our MAD world. Daniel Larison brushed off Romney’s European vacation, still disliked Condi, reviewed Paul Ryan’s record, rejected the idea of making Russia pay a price, slammed the clueless American advocates of MEK, repudiated a letter from a parallell universe, and relegated Romney’s foreign policy to the grave. Philip Giraldi proposed legitimate negotiation with Iran, and doubted our major non-NATO ally. Kelley Vlahos noted the mounting casualties in Afghanistan.
