hey jebba, it was clear from one of the links on that page that Paul claims not to have written the articles that went out under his name in his newsletter:
Update: Several apologists note that Paul now claims that the newsletter was written by a ghostwriter -- as though this somehow absolves him of responsibility for over a decade of hate speech.
This argument, all on its own, should be enough to disabuse anyone of the idea that Paul is a "straight talker." The newsletter went out under his name. If he didn't read the copy first, he should have. He owns the words in it -- either because he wrote them, or he bought and paid for them to be written for his own purposes. To claim now that he's somehow not responsible is like a politician saying, "That thing I said? I don't really believe it -- it's just something my speechwriter cooked up." Or a businessman claiming he's not party to a contract because his lawyer, acting as his agent, signed it for him.
Either argument would be laughed out of court.
i haven't dug much deeper than those links, i guess, because i tend to agree with this argument against apologia on behalf of Paul's relationship to his Newsletter. it seems very plausible to me that a busy politician wouldn't have the time to actually write everything in his/her newsletter. but given that a host of racist, nationalist, xenophobic, etc., remarks seem to have been published fairly regularly under his name, i'd want to hear him apologize for and denounce those statements at the very least before i felt any better about Paul's background. i'll start the googling, but if you know where he does this, i'd love to read it.
