Seeing this, I'm very disappointed with Paul. I've never thought he was as bad as that awful father of his, described by some as the "crazy uncle in the attic" of the GOP, but he too, as I've come to realize, has some standpoints that are downright terrible, and which Conway, in all his leftism, might find appealing too.

So says a writer whom I've never seen condemning Islamic slavemongering in countries like Sudan. Or Islamic thugs running underaged prostitution rings in Britain.
