re: #175 looking closely
On the flip side of this is Obama. Not every idea he has is bad, but just like Ron Paul, he has a number of terrible ones. If we’re going to weigh the idea of kooky politicians, we should look at the kooky and non-kooky ideas they all have. I’m sure even Dennis Kucinich may have a good idea or two (OK, I may be pushing it with two). Any good ideas from them however, does not in any way excuse their bad ideas or the bad actions of their followers.
