Concern can Be Sincere

Atrios isn’t really very impressed with this NYT blog post urging a Sister Souljah moment for John McCain.  I suppose he’d argue that McCain, as the candidate of the Republican Party, shouldn’t be saying bad things about Republican constituencies in an effort to curry favor with reflexively centrist, policy-averse media commentators.

That’s fair enough, but the GOP is extraordinarily unpopular and wrong about everything.

So it might genuinely be good politics and good policy to, say, give James Inhofe a public lecture about global warming.

It probably won’t happen because McCain is already having trouble with ginning up enthusiasm among the GOP base, in large part because his 2000 campaign was the Sister Souljah Express.
