I want to go on the record as agreeing with Rachel Lucas. She has apparently been taking a ton of heat for saying that conservatives ought to vote for McCain in November if they don't want someone worse. I said it in a short version recently, but she lays it out in far more detail than I did. If you want to follow her argument, which I think is completely sound, here are the relevant posts:

Dear People, You have lost your minds. Love, Rachel.
I feel like I've been at an illegal cockfight for 2 days
I can stand the heat so Iím staying in the kitchen. (But I will not make you a sandwich.)
This debate is like crack

I will vote for McC in preference to either of the dems, but I won't be happy about it. He seems to have little understanding of our economy, and to be hostile on a personal level toward businesspeople..I can easily imagine him pushing policies that will devastate whole industries. There are serious questions about his support of free speech. He has no experience in the executive management of large organizations. He seems very arrogant, and it's difficult to imagine him listening to subordinates who present unwelcome facts or views.

How did we get in this mess?

I hate McCain, but Rachel has a good point. I will sadly vote for him if it comes down to it.
