  2. Yeah. I did a piece not too long ago that it's hard to tell the difference between Paul supporters and liberals the way they trash conservatives.

  3. When Ron Paul is around you don't need comic relief.

    1. I thought we had Kucinich for that? But then, Paul did float the idea of Kucinich for veep.

  4. I don't think RP qualifies as a leftist, he's got some spot on domestic policy ideas but his foreign policy, as he professes them, definitely parallel those of leftists. He strikes me more like grandpa when he's at that point where you're wondering whether he's okay to leave at home on his own or if it's time to put him in a supervised living facility.

    1. Spart: I don't think Nordlinger is accusing RP of being on the left. I think it's one of those "With friends like these, who needs enemies" sort of statement.

      When Paul, or his followers are around, you don't need a leftist to trash conservatives, they'll do it for them.
