re: #53 jvic

Lech Walesa has endorsed, and will campaign for, an Illinois GOP gubernatorial candidate.

I’m guessing that this is the more-or-less innocuous tip of the camel’s nose. Once the precedent is established, see what other “defenders of the West” CPAC, the buchananites etc import to taint our politics.

(The report about Walesa has set hearts aflutter in the Right blogosphere. Fools and hypocrites: imagine how they’d react if Mandela came to campaign for Obama.

Foreigners shouldn’t participate in our politics. Period. Politicians who bring them in should be defeated without a second thought. That the practice is bipartisan is one more indication the country is in serious serious trouble.)

If this foreigner is participating, it is at the behest of the candidate, who is free to campaign however he wishes. If he thinks that having Walesa stump for him will gain him votes, that is his decision.
