Ron Paul: Catch the Fever!

After the last GOP debate, many of us wanted to see Ron Paul excluded from future debates for his comments about the attacks of September 11. One GOP leader, Saul Anuzis, planned to circulate a petition to that end. He's since changed his mind.

After reading this blog entry from National Journal, I'm grateful that Anuzis has halted his 'ban Paul' campaign. Sure, many Ron Paul supporters on the web are irritating libtards with nothing better to do that spam any website, poll or discussion board that has the audacity to insult their Chosen One.

I have to admit, though - I've gone from being irritated by them to entertained. The Hotline entry linked above is pure snark, but the comments below? Comedy gold.

And as far as polling? Yeah, he ain't in the top tier, but he is tops of the second tier. Check out New Hampshire Zogby poll, where he has moved up to 3% in the polls, as opposed to other candidates who are mostly losing ground. Not to mention that only 5/32 polls mention him.

Three percent?

RO-Mentum, baby!

In a related story, Gallup has Paul at 0 percent support.

This one works best if you imagine it spoken by an outraged teenage girl:

You are a moron. You're lucky breathing is an involuntary reflex. Otherwise you'd have suffocated long ago. Tssk.
Ron Paul is the first real candidate ever.

The schoolgirl-crush quality of the last sentence is almost endearing, really.

Then there's this one:

Andy is right. Until a full scale revolution is declared, fascist puppets of the CFR will continue to be installed under the illusion of "choice". The American people are so incredibly brainwashed into thinking we still live in a free society. I am personally voting for Paul. If he's elected he's going ot have to travel around in a bullet proof car like the Pope. He represents the people, and the owners of this country will kill anyone that stands in defense of the people.

Either this guy doesn't know the president actually does travel around in a bulletproof car, or he really wanted to get that Paul as Pope comparison in there.

Ron Paul supporters always complain that they are unfairly portrayed in the media as a group of crazed, obsessive lunatics. There is a way to avoid that.

Stop acting like crazed, obsessive lunatics.

One of the most-used sentences I see from Paulbots is a variation on the complaint that we're "afraid to debate/examine/consider his ideas." A little advice - it would be much easier to do so if those ideas were communicated without the level of snark, condescension and pure vicious jackassery that many Paulbots bring to the table.

Then again, who am I to complain? Politics is rarely this entertaining.
