Ron Paul Paul Skewered, Ron Paul's Congressional Challenger Championed, By... Wonkette

One of the few times I can link to a Wonkette piece in a non-ironic fashion.

Let's get this guy Peden elected. Here he is on Ron Paul's efficacy as a representative:

His voting record is … it’s horrid — 351 pieces of legislation he sponsored, six came out of committee, and none have ever passed. And if you go back and look, he just regurgitates the same pieces of legislation. “Restore the Second Amendment.” What does that mean, exactly?

But that’s his bill, and two years later he submits the bill again. He just keeps reprinting these and throwing them out there. And now he doesn’t even get any cosponsors on many of his bills. [With] many of his amendments, he’s called out of order on the floor for even putting the amendment in, because he doesn’t follow the rules of operation in the House.

He’s up there to make a point, not a difference. He wants to be called out of order because then it’s unique and it’s unusual, and he gets press, or at least Roll Call will say “Here he goes again.” But you know, if you do that once a year or once a term, it works. If you do it three or four times a day, it gets old.

He also says the Paultards hate him and have even made threats. Now they just pester him by calling his campaign office and reading their talking points... over and over and over again.
