    I believe one ought to take things seriously when they may not initially seem serious.

    You seem to view this as a small-scale issue.

    I view "accidental" Leftist sympathies with conservative human abominations like Rand Paul to be symptomatic of a larger scale and thus well-worth talking about. I view the liberal media hold itself to higher standards, for one thing. Anything else is not only morally wrong but is frankly pretty complicit in the whole sordid "Emperor Wears No Clothes" affair of how we get basically just screwed by our own team when they think they're doing the right thing. Like siding against censorship or war, which are morally right. But the failure of critical thought is alarming when coming from the Left (of any stripe). I call for a renewed desire for greater critical thought rather than lockstep ideology as the ultimate lesson to be learned here.
