Wonderful Remark

Via Steve Benen, this moment from a TV interview with the chairman of the Republican National Committee. He’s being asked about Rand Paul’s doubts regarding the value of the Civil Rights Act:

TAPPER: But do you condemn that view?

STEELE: I can’t condemn a person’s view. That’s like, you know, you believe something and I’m going to say, “Well, you know, I’m going to condemn your view of it.”

I see no way around it: Michael Steele is right. If you condemn someone’s view, that is like condemning their view.

. . . No, wait. It’s the same as condemning their view. So, never mind, Michael Steele is wrong.

Thank God, I was kind of nervous there.
