I linked to this — and a lot else — over the weekend, but it deserves its own day and 10 minutes of any patriot’s consideration:

. . . We have both spent our professional careers strenuously avoiding partisanship in our writing and thinking. We have both done work that is, in different ways, ideologically eclectic, and that has—over a long period of time—cast us as not merely nonpartisans but antipartisans. Temperamentally, we agree with the late Christopher Hitchens: Partisanship makes you stupid. We are the kind of voters who political scientists say barely exist—true independents who scour candidates’ records in order to base our votes on individual merit, not party brand.

. . . [And yet]under certain peculiar and deeply regrettable circumstances, sophisticated, independent-minded voters need to act as if they were dumb-ass partisans. . . .

“If conservatives want to save the GOP from itself, they need to vote mindlessly and mechanically against its nominees.”
