"It goes without saying too that Paul won"

...the Internet polls immediately after the debate. What Internet poll has Paul not won? (Who will win the US Open? Ron Paul 88%, Novak Djokovic 12%.)
Meanwhile, it turns out good old cranky uncle Ron is actually a pretty mean-spirited guy who goes for the political jugular. He was after Perry for some obscure letter the governor wrote in mild support of the idea of Hillarycare long before any specific program even existed. He is also first out of the gate with an attack ad and, while I was watching the debate, filled my inbox with a non-stop fusillade of unwanted emails attacking Perry.

Your Say

It always amuses me when the Ron Paul fanatics try to diss Palin supporters as being some sort of cultists.

This guy will at best, provide t.v. commerical fodder for the Obamunist party to use against whoever actually does get the nomination; at worst, he'll run as a third party candidate, absolutely guaran-damn-teeing, President Chavez getting a second term.

He's like the perpetual Republican version of Howard Dean, who was the Democratic "frontrunner" for 2004 until people actually started voting, from which he never recovered.

He's the chosen candidate of the 9/11 truthers which is enough to convince me he's a psycho.

His minions troll the internet, looking to 'correct' any negativity toward "Unca Ron".

In the early 80s, guys with beards and suspenders (invariably) used to hand out xeroxed copies of the "Ron Paul White Power Report" at the gun shows. Then it was the "Ron Paul Power Report"; then it was the "Ron Paul Survival Report" and finally, it was simply "The Survival Report".

I was stunned to discover a few years ago that he was a congressman now! If he ever actually gets close to the nomination, someone will pull one of these vile tracts out and sink him.

Incidentally, I've mentioned his former white-power rants to more than a few Paulistinians and they just shrugged.

Michael Medved, back when the mighty Ron Paul Juggernut was derailing Obama's run at the White House, had on an editor of America Free Press IIRC. It had been posting what was purported to be the Ron Paul monthly screed. Only it turns out it was ghost written by some Lew Rockwell clone and Ron Paul claimed to have no knowledge of the contents, nevermind the RP byline, and he seriously disavowed the glowing endorsement from Stormfront, America's most neutral White Power organization.

RP is George McGovern on foreign policy and Michael Moore on the hate America First theme. He and his racist nazi buddies can try prying my guns out of my very nimble hands. Ron Paul may not be a nazi, but he's the favorite candidate of nazis, real nazis, the ones with red arm bands and crooked symbols, those kind of nazis. Professionally, RP has never been able to convince more than a handful of influential people to do anything but sneer at him. That alone is reason to dismiss him. BTW, how do you know the CIA or the Burgerbilders aren't actually running RP just to collect the names of his kooks for surveillance?

RP has the foreign policy of George McGovern and International A.N.S.W.E.R. As a radio host says, "I'd vote for an orange juice can over Barak Obama." RP is the Ralph Nader of the GOP, a kook far outside of the party with no influence beyond the "still living at home crowd" and no ability to influence responsible adults during his entire career. Yeah, but he's the guy that will clean up DC, not unless he can become a dictator. It's RP and the commie-libs that both have a blame-America-first ideology. Pretending RP can win is the best help Obama can get toward reelection.

Maybe it's the jooos blocking the RP juggernaut, we know there can't be any legitimate opposition to RP just like all opposition to BHO is racism.
