Steve Sailer on the anti-Ron Paul smear campaign

Steve Sailer has some good information on the anti-Ron Paul smear campaign. Tidbits:

Martin Peretz, veteran editor-in-chief of the neoliberal New Republic magazine, has cultivated a long line of youthful protégés stretching back through Andrew Sullivan all the way to the 17-year-old Al Gore. Peretz’s latest bright young man, James Kirchick, his new assistant and winner of the 2006 National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association Excellence in Student Journalism award, published last week in TNR a furious 4000 word article bitterly denouncing Congressman Ron Paul as an “Angry White Man.”

After laborious research in the dusty archives of two Midwestern university libraries, Kirchick proves that some old newsletters once sent out by the GOP Presidential candidate…well, I’m not quite sure exactly what Kirchick proves, other than that Dr. Paul’s newsletters weren’t as boring as the MainStream Media.

More here. Kirchik is a regular at beltway “libertarian” parties and discussed his plans for the hit piece with a number of beltway “libertarians” days ahead of its scheduled release timed precisely for the January 8, 2008 New Hampshire primary. This primary has traditionally beeen considered the most important “king-making” primary in the United States. Sullivan, now at The Atlantic, eagerly joined beltway “libertarians” in loudly denouncing Paul well before the polls closed that day.

Here is a short bio of Jamie Kirchik.

    Well, Kirchik claims to be a rudy supporter, but what he has done is likely to enable McCain to get a shot. If so, the perfect reward would be if McCain did get in and then drafted the guy. He might then regret this prank as his ass gets sent off to die in some desert half a world away.
