I Ought To Be A Pundit

Instapundit and Volokh have both offered the same opinion I did last night — had the Republicans made any meaningful kind of an effort to keep libertarian-inclined voters within the fold, they would not now be wailing and gnashing their teeth over the loss of Congress to Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy. To be fair, both Prof. Reynolds in Tennessee and Prof. Zywicki in Virginia have been saying these sorts of things (as have I) for quite some time. Difference is, I’m not a correspondent on a top-ten blog and I’m not a law professor at a major university. But the Loyal Readership does seem to be growing; I’ve been averaging nearly 100 hits a day, possibly fueled by the election.
