While I glance at the titles of Gail Collins's columns, along with a blurb about the vitriol she is about to release, I rarely read what she has to say, as she is the typical empty suit that is promoted by the New York Times. However, today, she launched a vicious and sarcastic attack on Ron Paul, and is worth reading if for no other reason than one can see the condescension and nastiness oozing from one of the top "journalists" at the NYT.
Why the hatred aimed at Ron Paul? Collins spells out a few of his "crimes," including:
He also doesn’t believe in, well, let’s see: gun control, the death penalty, the C.I.A., the Civil Rights Act, prosecuting flag-burners, hate crime legislation, foreign aid, the military draft under any circumstances, campaign finance reform, the war on drugs, the war on terror and the war on porn. Also the war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan.
Wow. Ron Paul does not believe that the USA should have a secret police, state-sponsored killings, state-run elections, and invasions of hapless countries. Yeah, that makes him totally unfit for decent society, or at least what the NYT considers to be "unfit."
