Maggie Gallagher: Great Establishment Hope Evan McWhatever Is... Exactly What You'd Expect Him to Be

Vaguely, non-committally conservative in vague ways as far as social issues, but damn, is he good on corporate stuff!

Maggie Gallagher read his FaceBook page and has found this much:

He loves the Seattle Seahawks, John Boehner, and Paul Ryan.

In three years of Facebook posts, he never commented on a domestic issue, economic or social. He never said anything on any specific issue that a diehard Democrat couldn’t applaud.

..

After I scoured Evan McMullin’s Facebook page, I went to his website, wherein he says he’s very pro-life, but the only policy he commits to is no taxpayer financing of abortion; he boasts of support for adoption; and he commits to virtually nothing concrete on any issue, much less religious liberty, trying, I suppose, to be a unifier through vagueness, as many consultants would no doubt advise.

This may or may not help you win (I think not, in this instance, as voters are onto this game), but it definitely makes it almost impossible to have a victory worth winning, as the GOP majorities in Congress have proved time and time again. A few days later, consistent with his desire to be the new face of the Republican party that existing Washington GOP power players are longing for, McMullin was asked by Mark Halperin about gay marriage: “As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman, but I respect the decision of the Court, and I think it’s time to move on,” McMullin said, according to Lifesite News.

When Halperin asked if a President McMullin would at least appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn the Obergefell decision, he replied, “I wouldn’t.” He could have evaded. He could have said he would look for constitutionalists like Justice Scalia. But he didn’t. He instead said its time to accept that the Left gets to decide what is in our Constitution and move on. No one who cares about or understands constitutional conservatism would answer that way.

But we do get to keep the Ex-Im Bank, right, Evan?!

From Jazz Shaw, who notes the Great White GOPe failed to collect enough signatures to get on the California ballot.
