Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit fame has voted Republican:
“As I mentioned before, the Republicans don't really deserve my vote -- though as Bob Corker hasn't been in Washington that's not really his fault -- but nonetheless the Democrats have blown it again. Not long ago I was thinking that a Democratic majority in Congress wouldn't be so bad; but the sexual McCarthyism from the pro-outing crowd, coupled with the Dems' steadfast refusal to offer anything useful on national security, has convinced me that they just don't deserve a victory with those tactics. That's not Ford's fault, either, really. But I just don't think the Democrats are ready for a majority right now. We'll see how many other voters agree.”
A number of Instapundit’s complaints are admittedly legitimate. I am not even going to try defending “earmarks.” Still, the harsh reality is that the GOP is the only game in town. The Democrats too often act like a bunch of immature children not ready to handle the responsibilities of adulthood. Am I possibly exaggerating the importance of Reynolds' decision to support Bob Corker? No, I don’t think so. He speaks for numerous independent voters. I predict that the majority of them will also vote Republican. This should be minimally a decent year for the Republicans. There is still an outside chance of them picking up two U.S. Senate seats.
