I’m just returning from a vacation/study session in Vegas where I joined some grad school classmates in looking at modern interpretations of the Grail Legend. For that reason, we stayed at the Excalibur hotel as we prepared to attend a presentation of Spamalot (the main reason for our journey).
We were watching that comedic re-imagination of the Celto-Christian legend as the SuperDuperTuesday returns were announced.*
Yesterday, I preferred spending time with my friends to blogging on the election results. And today, as I drove back to LA, I wasn’t even listening to the news (or talk radio), focusing on the road, letting my mind wander and stopping at an Outlet Mall to buy presents for friends and nieces.
I had not learned until a friend called me that Mitt Romney had suspended his campaign for the White House. And I had been planning a post urging him to stay in so as to remind John McCain that there are still conservatives uncomfortable with the prospect of the Arizona Senator as the GOP nominee. I had hoped that might confirm our party’s prospective presidential nominee in his commitment to the principles on which he has been campaigning of late.
I agree with Hugh Hewitt that the former Massachusetts governor showed class in announcing his decision to stand aside. It’s too bad that Log Cabin did not show similar class in responding to that announcement, reacting instead like sore winners.
More on that pettiness anon.
*I say all this to explain why I haven’t been blogging much lately and why I’m too wiped to blog at the present time.
