I wrote previously about Ron Paul’s newsletters, and I still think there’s reason to condemn not only the writings but the worldview they espouse, one which Paul embraces even as he disavows some of the finer points of the newsletters. But I think there’s more to say about this incident and what it means about American politics.

In case you haven’t heard, today Rand Paul became only the third “major guest” in history to bail on Meet The Press, pleading “exhaustion.” At first that seems kind of strange, but it’s really not all that surprising when you consider that he spent most of the last few days sticking his foot all the way into his mouth, then trying to pull it back out again… while tap dancing.
