Writes The Left Conservative’s Dylan Hales, on paleoconservatives who are joining in on the neocon attacks against Obama – or worse, doing their dirty work for them, with little reward and doing much damage to their own cause:

“The Buckleyite right needs a research wing for the controversial “third rail” issues in American politics; immigration, race, sex and gay rights. Regardless of the intent, certain figures in the paleo movement continue to act as this wing, despite getting nothing in return (other than accusations of racism). Furthermore this “guilt-by-association” card being used against Obama is the very same card that was played against Ron Paul by the establishment right, as it always is when the Old Right starts to make a run for the endzone.”
