The objection here isn’t that Ron Paul isn’t sincere — although Means’ account that says Paul was saying of Reagan in 1988 what he now says of Bush raises an eyebrow. The objection is only that Paul isn’t conservative, much less Republican, as claimed.

I await the Southern Avenger’s latest YouTube pronouncement telling the good people of his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, that it’s time to pack it up and head off the North American continent because, as the Avenger said in his comparison of Iraqis to Confederates, the 41 Indian tribes who were the original inhabitants of South Carolina “simply want occupying armies out of their country.”
