I find it ironic that you accuse me of drinking grape kool-aid while offering me cherry kool-aid of your own.

If you want to believe the man is a saint and dismiss his track record in a blanket fashion because it doesn’t jive with what you want to believe about the world, that’s your prerogative.

As for me, I’m a conservative. I see politicians and government as necessary evils and will always treat them as such — with due suspicion. My trust has to be earned. That used to be a common sentiment among conservatives.

There is a term for those who will defend everyone and everything that happens on their side of the political aisle while dismissing any and all accusations of wrongdoing levied against them: “useful idiots.” In the past they were primarily found on the left. I’m dismayed at the frequency I find them popping up among conservatives these days as well.
