The War Street Journal Smears Ron Paul Supporters

The War...ahem....Wall Street Journal goes out of its way to sandbag Ron Paul supporters in its online edition today. Amy Schatz, the young journalist who penned this piece, has no doubt shot herself in the journalistic foot.

Ms. Shatz, I realize that you need the job, and you probably think that you're never in the wrong, but come on now! You need a reality check for once.

Most people don't seem to understand that political candidates, for the most part, are judged primarily on their platform and record. Ron Paul is obviously no exception to the rule. However, the difference between him and the other top-tiered candidates (like Ghouliani, the Huckster, Chumpson, etc.) is that he has an unimpeachable and unquestionable Jeffersonian record. Can one say the same about the other contenders in the race?

(A thankful nod to James Ostrowski for his mention of this on LRC.)
