What Would Ron Paul Do?

There has been a quasi-Messianic vibe surrounding this guy for a while; he doesn't seem to have supporters so much as he has Disciples.

But after a bit of snark from a Washington Times blogger, the deification of Ron Paul (the Only (Son of) Man Who Can Save America) achieves semi-official status:

I'd like to chastise some of my fellow Ron Paul supporters. I think that by allowing comments that say some pretty nasty things about her, Andrea is showing considerably more class than those of you who are making those kind of comments.

REPENT!!! And maybe even retract and apologize.

Individual journalists are not responsible for unfair, biased media policies, and though we can almost be forgiven for going into attack mode out of our consequent frustration, we need to occupy a higher ground. Defend Ron against untrue accusations, and point out the superiority of his positions. But try to imagine the respectful way in which HE would respond to someone like Mrs. Billup in a public forum, and make your responses be of a similar caliber.

Seriously, apart from his excellent performance in that Lemon Party advert, I really can't think of any particular reason to beatify Ron Paul yet.

Maybe after he puts us on the gold standard again. Wait, that's too easy; the gold standard is for pussies. The platinum standard, I guess. Every dollar in America will be backed by three atoms of platinum.

Fun fact: All of the platinum ever mined in the world in all of history could comfortably fit in a a living room. I read that. That doesn't mean it's true, but someone did take the time to write that down.
