    but that doesn't change the reality that he's an incredibly dishonest and unreliable source who cares a lot less about facts than about attacking people on his own personal Enemies List, with President Obama occupying the #1 through #17 positions.  It goes way beyond being an advocate - he really seems to think that he has some special moral authority that allows him to shape reality however he pleases.  

    Sometimes he does bring information to light that needs to be known, and I would never dismiss something purely because it's he who says it, but that doesn't change my assessment of his career.  It's hard to have sympathy for such a character, whose interest in liberty seems to be about on the same level of honesty as Rand Paul's.  And like Rand Paul, he cultivates a personality cult around himself, no doubt reveling in the thought of people plotting against him.  I would prefer to rely on a real investigative journalist for my information though - Seymour Hersh being one example.

    Nothing makes a Republican angrier than a smile on a poor child's face.
