Jack Will Be Back

As readers may know, American Conservative columnist extraordinaire Jack Hunter has signed on to be the official blogger of the Ron Paul 2012 campaign. Jack will be on hiatus from TAC while the campaign in under way: mixing campaigns and nonprofits like TAC is something tax laws and campaign-finance regulations frown upon. As soon as the way is clear, though, Jack’s regular work for us will resume.

In the meantime, there are several additions and improvements to the TAC site — and not just the site — coming soon. As part of the upgrade, we’re refining our comments policy [1]. Substantive, good-faith comments, positive or negative, are welcome as always. Profanity or inflammatory epithets are still unwelcome, as are ad hominem attacks on writers, other commenters, or anyone else. Keep posts concise and germane; this isn’t the place for full-length rebuttals or running battles with other users. That’s what your Facebook page is for.

The rules won’t be hard for most users to follow — the guiding principle is to keep the level of discussion to what you would expect at a good public lecture.

Good. Comments need to focus on the topic of the post as opposed to tiresome personal manifestos.

I miss Jack already, but it’s for a great cause!

Jack is doing a good job for Ron Paul. He is the best man for the job.

Sure hope he rebuts the latest (they’re hard to keep track of, I know) dishonest smear attack from the neocons, this one from Jeffrey Lord at American Spectator, helpfully linked by Andrew McCarthy at the NRO Corner. The usual fantasy land version of history of the 20th century American Right and GOP, revised from the neo point of view that an educated 13 year old could easily recognize as BS.

John T. Flynn was also a vicious anti-semite in case anyone was unaware. You didn’t know? Why shame on you!
