Russert gives Ron Paul more credibility…

The critical point to note is this: Paul was subjected to a harsh and informed attempt to embarrass him. Yet he didn’t embarras himself. We take it for granted that politicians flip flop, say stupid things, change their mind on substantial issues to pander to polls, and so on. It’s more a matter of how well they recover from (read: “distract from”) their oops’s than whether they make them. For Ron Paul, there is no recovering from faux pas’s because no one seems to have yet caught him in one, even after digging through newspapers back to the 80’s. And Russert’s attempts to catch him in one, aside from not working, occasionally bordered on the laughable (think of the accusation that it is inconsistent to be a strict constructionalist and call for a constitutional amendment). The very fact Russert, in trying to give Paul a workout and make him sweat, had to use such poor material just shows how dead consistent Paul has been.
