Granted your column is an opinion piece, and not one of serious public import, but really Paul, did you think nobody would notice your prejudice? Well, I'm guessing not. Most people who are, don't know when it's showing.

If you're going to run for president some day, ...... then it isn't too early to be sociable and goofing with people who really aren't sure you are who you are.
