Default Re: Holy Crap! Andrew Sullivan endorses Ron Paul

your post essentially implied that we shouldn't care if ron paul is either a virulent racist or associated with one, because barack obama has a racist grandmother. I think you can see why that's ridiculous? nevermind the difference between friends and family (hint: you can choose one, and not the other) there's another problem here. pointing towards ron pauls policies now as being "pro" minority as some sort of counterweight to these newsletters is idiotic. If I go save someones life, I cannot go murder someone else and someone have it be ok because of previous actions. you can weigh the relative moral merit of a person on some kind of scale if you like, but that doesn't mean normal people will ignore the bad stuff.
