Plausibility structures explain why certain views of someone like Paul are beyond the pale, and deeply offensive, but the fact that Rudy Guiliani supports the murder of babies does not put him beyond that same pale. It explains why association with Ron Paul is a problem, but continued association with Pakistan isn’t. Say what you will about Ron Paul, he wasn’t hiding Osama in his basement all these years. In short, if the associational argument has any force at all, we have a multitude of alliances to get rid off before dealing with the likes of Paul.
