There is a cat fight at American Spectator between the allegedly pro-Romney Quin Hillyer and the allegedly pro-Newt Jeffrey Lord. This is pretty ugly, and I’m actually surprised it has reached this level on a public blog. RET may have to step in to separate these two.
Jeffrey Lord, who has intellectual integrity about equivalent to Bill Clinton’s, has become a purveyor of smear jobs utterly divorced from facts, logic, and decency. After an exchange of about a dozen emails back and forth in which he refused to acknowledge simple facts — not opinions, facts — the time has come to show him up for his growing and despicable hackery.
Of course this is all incredibly silly. Two people fighting over who is the most conservative, RINO Romney or Futurist Tofflerite Newt, is embarrassing when there is a candidate in the race who favors originalist constitutionalism and a commodity based currency and opposes central banking, etc., etc., etc.
