Update on the Response to Neiwert's Latest

The always intellectually stimulating Glenn Greenwald has an impassioned response to Neiwert's latest attack on Ron Paul here. My less-impassioned response is here.

I still take issue with the way in which Paul handled the flag-burning issue for the reasons described in the comments section to my earlier post, but Greenwald's passionate defense of anyone who places principle above politics is well worth a read. Frankly, it's just nice for once to hear someone point out that a principled conservative does not need to, and for that matter should not, have the same positions as a liberal/Progressive.
