The Undorsement

Rod Parsley withdraws endorsement of John McCain. Given McCain’s decision to embrace Parsley, then continuing to embrace Parsley when Parsley’s repugnant views were brought to his attention, and then to distance himself from Parsley when the MSM brought Parsley’s repugnant views to the attention of the public, it’s understandable that Parsley’s not happy with McCain.

But still — why not endorse? What’s really changed here? From the point of view of a social conservative who yearns for Muslim blood to be shed, McCain clearly seems like the lesser of two evils whatever else you might say about him.
