How do you make one of those smilies that rolls its eyes, because that’s what I’m doing as I write this, rolling my eyes?
Wick Allison, the publisher of The American Conservative and a noted Obama”con” in 2008, says he plans to vote for Obama again.
This is so absurd that I can’t help but think it has to be a type of pose. A way of showing that you’re so disgusted by the shallow conservatism of mainstream conservatives that you’ll vote for the Dem just to spite them. At the same time, not insignificantly I expect, you win the praise of Obama supporters and other “serious” people. There is simply no excuse for anyone who considers himself a conservative to vote for Obama over voting third party. Allison mentions Gary Johnson but doesn’t mention Virgil Goode.
And some people wonder why no one takes TAC seriously.
Note: The Masthead describes Allison as the President/CEO, not the publisher, but the article describes him as the publisher.
