Reason Magazine on the Ron Paul Newsletters

Reason magazine looks into the question Who Wrote Ron Paul's Newsletters?

Reason is a libertarian magazine. They show pretty conclusively that the racist newsletters were written as part of a strategy to create and exploit racial division. Paul was aware of the newsletters when they came out and defended them when he was running on the Libertarian party ticket for President. It was only later when he decided to run as a Republican again that he disavowed them.

Meanwhile Richard Cohen shows the standards that mainstream Democrats are held to, Cohen accuses Obama of being an anti-semite because he attends a church where the preacher has a magazine that once gave an award to Louis Rarakhan who is an anti-semite. Meanwhile Rudy Giuliani gave a similar award to Gerry Adams, leader of the IRA and it has not merited any establishment press attention.
