Well, you know. A.C. Kleinheider has a column about a Ron Paul Republican’s ouster from a local GOP leadership position. I’ve put in my two cents on Matt Collins’ refusal to shake hands with Zach Wamp before. I don’t have any position on how the Davidson County Republicans should have dealt with him. But I do agree with Kleinheider that this is a poor way to mainstream constitutionalist ideas (and when somebody as conventional as Howard Fineman is talking about you, your ideas are starting to permeate the mainstream). I understand Collins and company think they are going to be able to ostracize Republicans who support unconstitutional legislation. It looks to me that the main result has been self-marginalization, which is ultimately self-defeating.
