Over at TNR, Jamie Kirchick (who also contributes to Jewcy) has a brutal piece on U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), the libertarian antiwar candidate seeking the GOP presidential nomination. Paul has raised a stunning amount of money from Americans with very different politics — liberals and conservatives alike — but Kirchick believes that Paul has hidden his true beliefs from the public, and presents evidence that Paul has a long history of bigotry and conspiracy-mongering. The Paul campaign claims that the congressman did not write the newsletters that Kirchick quotes.

(In all fairness, "Welfaria," "Zooville," "Rapetown," "Dirtburg," and "Lazyopolis" would make good names for New York City.)
