Wither America?

The money graf:

“Even if it’s not ethnic prejudice, but some other aspect of the culture
wars, that proves decisive, the point still holds. For America to make
a decision as grave as this one – while the planet boils and with the
US fighting two wars – on the trivial basis that a hockey mom is
likable and seems down to earth, would be to convey a lack of
seriousness, a fleeing from reality, that does indeed suggest a nation
in, to quote Weisberg, “historical decline”. Let’s not forget, McCain’s
campaign manager boasts that this election is “not about the issues.”
