CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE. In a sharp break from his recent wankery, Richard Cohen has an excellent column on John McCain today. It's interesting, though, that Cohen thinks Jerry Falwell can codify McCain a true conservative. If that's the case, and Falwell has become a gatekeeper for the ideology rather than just the Christianist voting bloc that rests in uneasy alliance with conservatism, then the word truly has lost all meaning.
