No need for damage control. Never try to prevent things from getting out because it makes us seem like them.

This being said, I watched the piece and Tucker did a decent job of defending Ron Paul. For example, he asked if the Ron Paul had ever said anything like this. Of course, he has not.

The guy being interviewed just seems crazy in the end. Saying that Ron Paul "speaks in code" is just strange.

Bottom line, unless I hear Ron Paul say something raciest (which I have not, and in fact have only heard the opposite), these baseless allegations don't bother me. At the end of the interview, Tucker essentially said the same thing...something to the affect that he is not convinced.

Well, I did bury it, though I thought about not doing it. I did add comments and dugg the pro-RP comments already on there. If it does hit front page the best thing we can do is have all the top comments pro RP.

So everyone bitches when there is a "bury brigade" but it's ok when we are the ones burying?

Yeah, it's called spin control. If you want to win, you better be prepared to fight dirty.

I admit I buried the first one, perhaps I shouldn't have. Maybe it is better to just add our comments and links and try to bring the truth forward. Here's a second one that links to the article on reason, which is actually much better since it has links at the bottom to other articles of theres that have discussed/debunked these racist charges before. Do we digg this one?
