He just keeps moving forward. Even when nobody is following his lead.

REVISIONISM. Time for credit where credit is due. The current election season has tested every conservative, and most have been found wanting. Ann Coulter defected at one point to Hillary Clinton, probably just for fun but hardly in service to the cause of preventing a Democrat landslide. George Will and Peggy Noonan can't decide whether to be frightened of Obama or to kiss him passionately on the lips. Charles Krauthammer is openly disgusted with the world and the whole American political scene. Somewhere between fifty and seventy percent of National Review editors are a positive disgrace, whining about this and that piece of right wing bric-a-brac getting singed by McCain and/or Palin while the whole house is burning spectacularly to the ground. Michelle Malkin has gone shrieky bipolar, slamming Bush and McCain with every fiber of her being one day, then hurling apoplectic charges at Obama and his army of Orcs the next. Even Rush Limbaugh wavers between supporting his party's nominee and initimating that an Obama landslide will create a new yellow brick road for the second coming of Reagan. (It won't.)

And then there's Sean Hannity. He never quits, never stops, never loses heart, never doubts, never tires of repeating his mantras about Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, and all the other unreported vulnerabilities and disqualifications of Barack Obama.

I have no idea how he does it. But after a certain point, you have to dispense with the condescending remarks about his education and intelligence and acknowledge that he is the only equivalent we have to every single goddamn Democrat in Washington, DC. Because that's how they are. They just keep coming, like a battalion of terminators. Nothing wounds them, hurts them, or slows them down. Those dead red eyes are locked on the prize in a way that almost no conservative can understand or even believe. And the only one we have who fights the way they fight is Sean Hannity.

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. But right now I feel some moral obligation to salute it. He's the only one who never gave up on the Ayers connection, not even for a single day. He's either less than human or a superhero. You tell me which it is.

Ever so reluctantly, I'm compelled to admit he's earned my admiration. That's my tablespoon of humility for today.
