[digg-reddit-me]As some of my previous posts attest, I have argued against Ron Paul. I’m not his biggest fan (because I disagree with him on many issues, and think many who are supporting him now would be unhappy with a Paul presidency). But it is on a morning like this that I am reminded of what a valuable politician he is.
Ron Paul on Fox News and Friends this morning:
“It reminds me of what Sinclair Lewis once said. He said, ‘When fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.’ I don’t know if that is a fair assessment or not, but you wonder about using a cross like he is the only Christian, or implying that subtly.”
The commentator from Fox News and Friends is totally flustered by this, sputtering about. It’s actually quite funny. Even if you disagree with Paul’s assessment it is far more enlightening (and entertaining) to discuss Huckabee as a Trojan horse for fascism than to debate Barack Obama’s kindergarten essays.
