Alex Pareene is not buying the Road to Damascus act. Nor does he care for Joe Scarborough. As for me, I am deeply skeptical of people who claim to have an infallible means to distinguish between conversion and hypocrisy.

You can accuse me of being wrong, and misguided, and equivocating on the president’s behalf, and trying to rationalize that there were good policies, and so I would take the good with the bad.

We have to create an off-ramp for people who made those same very bad decisions that I made, but also had the courage to admit they were wrong, and to come out in force against this man.
