I mean, it’s nice he has a hobby, right?

Far more innocuous than destroying the world.

“‘For a normal, politically astute person — regardless of political philosophy — you look at somebody’s résumé and you say, “Oh, you were the Southern Avenger who wrote things about how John Wilkes Booth didn’t go far enough,” that would raise alarm bells,’ said Bruce Bartlett, a former Ron Paul aide who worked for Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush.”
