Why Are Pundits Afraid to Denounce Ron Paul's Racism?

Joe Scarborough and his brow-beaten television wife, Mika, were elsewhere this morning, so Little Willie and the two resident dicks pundits, Halperin and Barnacle, had as their guest Kelefa Sanneh, author of the latest, dispassionate Ron Paul push piece in The New Yorker.

Sanneh, quite clearly, was seduced by Paul, as are most people, formerly of the Left, who, for some reason, have given up on the President. I can think of two reasons - legalised pot and the end of the so-called American empire. It never ceases to amaze me how these people, who view themselves as intelligent, would trade women's rights, minorities' civil rights, healthcare, the environment and education, for a spliff and isolationism.

And nobody, no one, not any suit at this table, and - surprisingly - not Sanneh - spoke about Paul's racism, his infamous newsletters and his ties to white supremacist oganisations and Stormfront. They did, however, speculate about a third party run, which could be disastrous for the Democrats.

People thinking of voting for this old curmudgeon need to know that his tent ain't that big, and some of the company you'll keep whilst inside, just might start to stink a bit.

  1. Hey, I was crushed to find out that my Iraq war veteran, sea life-loving, welder's union belonging, living with her boyfriend and believer in sexual freedom niece has been seduced into the Paul camp, oblivious to all arguments (based in fact and with links thereto) that he would be the WORST thing ever for someone like her.
