...according to the always thoughtful Thomas Sowell. He favors a ticket that combines Gingrich’s unparalleled knowledge and vision with Giuliani’s street-fighter outrage. I do see Sowell’s point about Gingrich being outrage-challenged and Romney being too much of a gentleman. But he’s neglected the Thompson option--he can certainly act like he’s outraged. Sowell writes, I think, out of concern that none of the Republican candidates is faring particularly well right now, and I fear his concern is justified. I have some sympathy for Julie’s pro-McCain and pro-Thompson posts below, although their shared moralism about things like campaign finance legislation remains irksome. And I agree with John Podhoretz that Giuliani needs to take a crash course in consitutional law from Justices Thomas and Scalia and get a very good grade.
