Roger Simon: It’s honorable of John McCain to try to calm down some of the crowds his campaign has spent months inciting.
(ed.note: Simon’s article actually hits McCain’s campaign pretty hard — that it’s out of control, tanking, that his crowds bear an uncomfortable resemblance to the crowds that usually end up storming the castle at the end of each Frankenstein movie. But still, deep down, McCain’s a very honorable man. I thought conservatism made a big play about personal responsibility. At a certain point, folks need to come to grips with the fact that this is John McCain. The race he chose to run. And stop making excuses for him.)
