McCain's most resonant. . .

. . .moment in last night's debate came when he defended Rudy Giuliani against the New York Times opportunistic use of its endorsement of the senator as a platform from which to attack the mayor. Larry Kudlow seems to think it would be a good idea for McCain to reject the endorsement. I have to say I'm inclined to agree, and for all the reasons Larry points out.

The Times has been as much a stalwart in opposition to all we have sought to accomplish in Iraq as John McCain has in his support of it. I see no more benefit in their endorsement than I would the endorsement of George Galloway. And their use of it as a wedge between the two candidates who are undeniably our strongest assets in this ongoing struggle against radical Islamic terrorists is just one more measure of their duplicity.

In short, as far as I'm concerned, the Times can take their endorsement and stick it in Saddam's rathole.
