Settling? You Bet.

Jim Geraghty talks about his choice in the Virginia primary:

If somebody out there is saying, “Jim, you’re settling,” I respond, “Well, yeah. Welcome to politics. In fact, welcome to life.” I can hold myself to the highest of standards, but if I hold politicians to that, I’ll always be disappointed. You rarely get somebody who agrees with you 10 out of 10 times. And some folks are acting like they’ve never had their preferred candidate lose a primary before. It happens. Sometimes the electorate prefers the war veteran with some non-conservative stands to the guys who check all the boxes. I’m not going to rage at Republican primary voters in this process; they’ve made their call.

Read the whole thing.  I feel the same way.

    Holding politicians, mostly lawyers, of all people to “high-standards” given all the evidence of their chosen profession, is a sign of severe cognitive dissonance and disconnect.
    Voting – it’s not who you vote for, it’s who you vote against.
