Bob sounded downright uninformed about the content of the newsletters. I can forgive a Paul fan circa summer of 2011 who had mainly come to know Paul from his debate performances. But once you learn the whole story, if you continue to stick with Paul and try to advance his reputation, there is seriously something wrong with you. I'm not sure if this applies to Bob, John McWhorter, or Glenn, but to answer your question directly, I lost some respect for all three because of their pro-Paul comments. That doesn't mean I've lost all respect for them, of course, but Paul is a mad man, a vile hatemonger, and they should know better.

If someone wants to condemn Paul and then offer as an aside that he has an occasional good idea, that's one thing. Too often, though, the Paul apologists do it the other way: the laud the hatemonger, then offer as an afterthought that, sure, he did some bad things a long time ago, now can we please move on?

What kind of message are these people sending? One of toleration of racism, hate, and apartheid.
