Paulistas Coming Around?
The American Spectator ^ | September 6, 2012 | Larry Thornberry

TAMPA -- The Paulistas were at the Republican National Convention last week, and they were cranky. They held up cranky signs and wore T-shirts with cranky messages. They scowled. They pouted. They sometimes shouted when others were speaking. They were clearly cheesed off that their man, who won several states during the primaries, did not get to write the platform and otherwise dominate the convention.

Oh, wait. Oops. No, Dr. Paul, the gold-medal winner this year in the Olympic Pat Paulsen look-alike competition, didn't win several states. In fact, he did not win a single state. He ran early and late. He ran in the south and the north and the west. He lost early and often. He lost late. He lost everywhere. The entire primary season was an oh-fer for Dr. Paul, who, as he was not named Republican quarterback, holds out the prospect that he may take his football and go home for this fall, taking much of his small but intense following with him.

At the convention, Dr. Paul himself was coy, declining to say that he would endorse Republican nominee Mitt Romney, leaving open the possibility that he thinks his principles could as well be implemented by our rookie president as by Romney. It also makes one wonder what those people wearing T-shirts that say "I'm a Ron Paul Republican" could possibly mean by it.

Every indication is this presidential race will be a close one, including in vital Florida with its 29 electoral votes. Republicans are justified in wondering if Ron Paul could be their Ralph Nader. Nader, every bit as politically evangelical as Dr. Paul, nearly siphoned enough voters away from George W. Bush in Florida in 2000 to throw that state, and the presidency, to Al Gore....

If Ron runs, Rand goes down.

Funny, but I remember watching Ron Paul give Mittens O’Romney a free pass in the Primary Debates, as if he Knew that old Glue Pot was the anointed Cello Pack/6 Pack of RINO butt crack wipe even Before the rest of us did.

Maybe, CRAAAAZY old RP cut some kind of slick, sick, underhanded deal to get that Damn Federal Reserve Audit done behind our backs.

And just Maybe, it’ll set some CRAAAZY stuff in motion to make those upright Bipartisan, Aisle Crossing Turncoats of ours do something, eventually, about Defunding some of our Feral Govt.

Yah, that stupid old Ron Paul, Gawd Aww-mitey, he just gets dumber by the minute.

Thanks for the pics. That’s about the 20th copy I’ve got of the 2nd idiot protesting Zionists.

Just in case it matters, I’m gagging down my revulsion with Romney’s pro-deathcare, pro-death in the womb, pro-leftist judiciary appointments, and pro-just about everything about our beloved RINOcrats are B’Slapping us with to vote for Ryan.

And if the very Thought of going to Dummies Underground for Any reason didn’t have me on my knees hurling into the can, I’ve got a suspicion I could come up with some pics and photoshops of similarly revolting morons purporting themselves to support the ‘Real’ Republicans.

Meanwhile, Bernanke and his printing/Counterfeiting presses just keep rolling, and paying, for every disgusting “We Need A Program” our ‘Real Republicans’ have Bipartisaned us with.
