Crocodile Tears of Neocon Clowns

Shorter Joe Klein: Neocons don't give a rat's ass about the Iranians; never did and never will.

And it was this sort of thinking by Ron Paul that got him a couple of campaign contributions from the ex-DLB.

when is the last time we condemned Saudi Arabia or Egypt or the many other countries where unlike in Iran there is no opportunity to exercise any substantial vote on political leadership? It seems our criticism is selective and applied when there are political points to be made.

Thanks Dr. Paul. BTW, for those keeping score, he is a real doctor.

And, a nice posting by Steve Benen along the same lines. Why neos have any forums beyond laughable blogs is a mystery.


  1. From memory Ron Paul was not featured on the Fox News website - alone among the Republican candidates - in the lead up to the primaries last time around...
    I don't agree with all of his positions but I'd take him over the rest in a heartbeat.

  2. No, he didn't get a lotta love from Fox. I sent him a contribution after he told off Guiliani in a debate and one for something else that escapes me now. He does have some wacky ideas and some good positions. One of the few Pols with true principles anyway.

  3. I like Paul sticking to his principled guns but I also find several of them completely unrealistic, although I suppose that many pure principles encounter this same problem.
