Election coverage on First Things
I have reluctantly found that election coverage at First Things's blog can usually be skipped without major loss. The only thing they talk about at length is abortion, and if that isn't your hot button issue, then there's not much else there. I would actually be surprised if Richard John Neuhaus and J. Bottum went out for full-fledged punditry anyway, given the pre-political nature of the journal. But it does seem that abortion, and only abortion, calls them into the public square at election time.
