Hilarious: Democrats and Liberals, Who Are Of Course Definitionally Non-Racist, Are Sticking With Ron Paul's Racist Ass

Dave Weigel.

Think about it. If Ron Paul was suffering and taking damage from the stories about his old newsletters, what sort of voters would abandon him? Who'd be offended by signed editorials about fleet-footed blacks and skeezy gay men? Well, everybody, hopefully, but you'd expect independents, Democrats and liberals, the people boosting Paul in Iowa and New Hampshire, to react the most negatively.

You know who wouldn't agree? Barack Obama, who described his party's white voters as "bitter" people "clinging to their guns and religion" who loathed people who were "different."

Slublog asks:

If his GOP numbers had gone up post-newsletter, imagine what the headlines would have been.

Hey, here's a possible alternate take, Mr. Weigel: Democrats and liberals are not nearly as anti-racist as they like to imagine themselves to be.

They are primarily anti-racist as a tactic in their primary drive of being anti-conservative, and anti-racism is only important as it contributes to the anti-conservative cause.

When a known, demonstrable, egregious, David-Duke-promoting racist is actually useful in the anti-conservative cause, how they flock to his flag.
