Andrew Sullivan over at The Daily Dish endorses Ron Paul as the GOP primary candidate. (Keep in mind that this is simply the GOP primary endorsement, not the presidential race endorsement. Sully, a tempered libertarian, has been vocally more satisfied with Obama’s performance than even most liberals.)
He would never take $1.8 million from Freddie Mac. He would never disown Reagan, as Romney once did. He would never speak of lynching Bernanke, as Perry threatened. When he answers a question, you can see that he is genuinely listening to it and responding – rather than searching, Bachmann-like, for the one-liner to rouse the base. He is, in other words, a decent fellow, and that’s an adjective I don’t use lightly. We need more decency among Republicans.
He ends the post with a bit of a random note, probably in reference to Fox’s less than stellar coverage of Ron Paul as a viable candidate.
Oh, and fuck you, Roger Ailes.
