You Know That Things Are Really Bad . . .

. . .when a McCain campaign adviser endorses Barack Obama, but that is exactly what Charles Fried, a conservative legal scholar and President Reagan's solicitor general, has done. He explains:
"I admire Senator McCain and was glad to help in his campaign, and to be listed as doing so; but when I concluded that I must vote for Obama . . . I felt it wrong to appear to be recommending to others a vote that I was not prepared to cast myself. So it was more of an erasure than a public affirmation--although obviously my vote meant that I thought that Obama was preferable to McCain-Palin. I do not consider abstention a proper option."
