Now it’s Paul’s time to school. There’s simply no ground for argument against his claim that the Republican party has deliberately and progressively abandoned its core policy commitments. As I’ve said elsewhere, the strength and vigor in Paul’s candidacy, disorganized as it has been, came from his constitutionalism more than his libertarianism. But there’s no doubt that a major dent has been put in Paul’s campaign. There are few high-profile constitutionalists writing — and few people who mention Taft — but more libertarians, both cultural and political. Their despond over Paul’s newsletters probably will suck all the wind from his sails. It’s clear that Thompson’s making a play — despite what he’s implied to bloggers today — for Paul’s votes and Huckabee’s votes. As he should. Rudy continues to be limp by comparison. Thompson still, still has the unbelievable chance to make himself a real player. I’d encourage him, in the same way I encouraged him to declare in the first place, to get hopping.
