A Reason for Optimism on McCain

With the presidential election approaching, there is a palpable, unsettling realization on the center-right that an Obama Administration is a real possibility. But conservative leader Grover Norquist was here for lunch yesterday and gave several reasons for optimism regarding a McCain victory. One of the most important is this: If Obama wins and reinstates the so-called Fairness Doctrine, media like Christian radio, Christian television, and conservative talk radio could be up a creek. Grover believes that once the James Dobsons and the Rush Limbaughs communicate this effectively to their listeners, the center-right will be energized to help defeat Obama. We shall see.
