Paul Appealing and Peale Appalling?


TPM Reader HC checks in …

Thanks for the thoughtful post on Ron Paul, one of the more lucid pieces I’ve read on his candidacy. I think, though, what you may be missing is that certain major voices in the blogosphere have spoken admiringly about him (Greenwald) or have actually endorsed him in the GOP primary (Sullivan). This man is clearly beyond the valley of crazies and has advanced extremely racist views in the not-too-distant past and yet many of our more libertarian pundits seem willing to give him a pass. This is frustrating to many of us.
