Rational doesn't meant correct. Heck, I even said I don't know if it's correct. Rational means it's based on reason, examining facts, making judgments, thinking about the future. Not just reacting emotionally, which is 99% of what is happening on this forum now. I have yet to read an argument on Jack Hunter's rational level about why this was a bad move. I'm sure there is such an argument.
"Regular Republicans automatically think those who try to explain blowback are somehow rationalizing terrorism. Paul supporters automatically think those who try to explain Rand’s endorsement are somehow trying to rationalize “selling out.” - Jack Hunter
