Ever since Reason’s fit in late ’07, I’ve taken Paul as a litmus test…basically, that anyone who disses Paul is not One Of Us. I still think that’s true. However, the man is not a god. He’s in a position to do something (even if it’s not the position that should have been his by House seniority rules), so it’s time to “do or do not”, as Yoda would say. Granted, since he now has the power to make the DJIA do interesting things, he may be found expendable, so I can understand fear. But Ron, you’re 75 years old! You’re going to be with Jesus sooner than later. Better to go as a martyr, if it comes to that, than to die of old age on a respirator, knowing you could have made a difference and didn’t.
