During the Iowa caucuses tonight it wasnt just the wind sending a chill into the hearts of presidential candidates.
At 8:30 p.m., just after entrance polls started pouring in, Ron Paul tweeted a snarky shot at fellow Republican candidate Jon Huntsman.
@jonhuntsman we found your one Iowa voter, hes in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks, read the tweet that came from Pauls verified Twitter account.
The tweet from Pauls account was deleted within half an hour of its being sent, but ABC News captured a screenshot.

He really can be a nasty, vindictive, petty, cranky sort of conspiratorial kook when he wants to, can’t he?

(Be careful of believing something just because you want it to be true.)
Now we know that L.Ron can’t be held responsible for anything written in his name unless he deems it made him look good. If it was bad, it was his theatans writing it.. err... I mean ghost writers.

Paul, YOU LOST! The conservatives and RINOs took 80% of the Iowa GOP. Now you and your cult should take a hike. Take your racist newsletters, US blaming for 9/11, Iran nukes, isolationism and national defense gutting, traitor praising, and your conspiracy theory kook fringe ideas with you.
I thought it was funny. Seems like a perfectly appropriate response to blowing off Iowa and saying that all they grow is corn. Certainly, it's better than the stuffed shirt bed-wetter type Republicans who are afraid of saying anything that might "offend" someone.
What I want to know is, how the heck do I get a job reading Twitter posts and then "reporting" them as actual news? Can anyone do that, or do I have to attend the Columbia School Of Journalism or something?

It was a classless gloat.

What a little man. Can’t imagine Dubya doing that. Or Sarah.
