And I can't think of anyone better than the always professional Balko to show what a stupid ass Mona Charen is. I still have Do-Gooders in my stack somewhere waiting to be read, and I think I might just toss it out. It's too bad -- but good, really -- that establishment republicans are now exposing themselves as the liars I must conclude they've always been. Such a widespread and appalling smear campaign directed at Paul is really proof positive that they never meant any of it. It was all just a "political stance," to them. And make no mistake: they know very well that they are attempting to impugn the character of a decent, kind, honest man who happens to be the most consistent politician in upholding supposed conservative values and principles in at least a hundred years, if not all time. What miserable fuckers.
