He calls for the Republicans to behave strategically and abandon the McCain campaign to attempt to save enough Republican seats in the Senate to stop Democrats' initiatives during the first years of the Obama Administration...

6. Republicans should assign Frum to be McHate's Special Assistant
for the remainder of the campaign.

That's where he belongs. Firmly within the Nexus of Evil in the USA.

9. Most already are, in Oregon Smith (R) has ads trying to tie him to Obama
Saying that he and Obama agree on many issues, etc. but we aren't buying it. However, the fact that he's running ads like that is telling.
