National Review: Time for Coleman to Give Up

It's not often I agree with The National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru, but perhaps once every other blue moon it happens. Ponnuru writes:

I think it's time for [Norm Coleman] to give up this fight.

With today's news that Al Franken's lead is actually growing, narrowing Norm Coleman's already extremely narrow path to overtaking Franken, Ponnuru's right. I'm surprised to hear him say this, and I'm not holding my breath for other conservatives to say the same thing (though who would be the next to chime in on this -- David Brooks?). Nevertheless, a semblance of reality from The National Review doesn't often happen.

Uh-oh...

He's going to have to apologize to Rush for this transgression.

Has K-Lo weighed in on this yet?  I take all my National Review pearls of wisdom with a dollop of sand till I hear from the K-Lo side of the wing-dom.

Uh -oh another National Review writer looking for employment for stating the honest and obvious.

If Coleman tries to get Scalia-Thomas et. al. to save him, it will just reopen the wounds of Bush v. Gore, and remind everyone of that putrid, corrupt matter.  My sense is that even the Supreme Court crazies will not go there.
