Put aside the recent developments concerning Reverend Al’s tax troubles. This is the same Al Sharpton who has more than anyone in America stoked the threats of violence in Ferguson should the grand jury render a decision not to their liking. Anyone who still thinks the GOP nominating Paul to be its presidential nominee in 2016 is a good idea should pause to consider Paul’s judgment in seeking out Sharpton in the first place. Paul’s press secretary states, “This meeting is another example of Senator Paul’s willingness to work across the aisle to solve our nation’s problems.”
It’s bad enough that Democrats have made a ritual of kissing Reverend Al’s ring. Republicans should not follow suit. As I have argued before, Sharpton should have been shunned by civilized society long ago.
