  •  Did he endorse Paul for president? (9+ / 0-)

    If so, that should be mentioned in the diary.  All I saw was this:

    Rall posts fawningly...
    Who cares?  You know, you wouldn't bother posting this about anybody else.  This is one of those things that goes straight back to Freud's "The Prejudice of small differences," where people are more outraged by small heresies by allies than big heresies by non-allies.  A statement praising Rand Paul by anybody else wouldn't have got as much attention, but since Rall is supposed to be one of us, it's a travesty wrapped in an enigma stuffed in an eggroll.  How else to explain all this overreaction.

    For what it's worth, sometimes I feel ashamed of our own leaders that we have to find common sense in the words of somebody like Rand Paul.  This is not praise of libertarianism, though.  It's damning of the Democratic leadership that they have too little liberal backbone to embrace a position that even somebody like Rand Paul can embrace.
