Bachmann, Santorum, and Huntsman All Fail To Qualify For The Virginia Ballot

So it will be Newt, Romney, Perry, and Doktor Kookoobananas. The guy whose pitches to readers and voters included gems like this:

Dear Friend. Will you survive the "new money"? You must be prepared, because within one year, the U.S. Treasury will impose a radically different currency on the American people. Government officials won't tell you the truth about this ominous new development and most of your neighbors will be caught napping.... I saw the ugly new bills, tinted pink and blue and blighted with holograms, diffraction gratings, metal threads and chemical alarms."

The government, Paul assured his readers, would be recalling the old currency at the same time, which would cause a real problem for "the underground economy," most of whose participants are doing "a very worthwhile thing" that's good for the country. Paul's June 1985 newsletter told of one Professor Claude Martin of the University of Michigan, who supervised consumer testing of the new money in 1983: "Today... the professor sounds frightened and refuses to talk. After muttering that he no longer is permitted to discuss the project, he hangs up." Professor Martin discussed the project at length with Barron's (the article notes dryly) and said he'd never spoke to Paul. When confronted with this discrepancy, Paul said he'd heard the story from another person, "who I choose not to name." Ten years later, of course, the Treasury did begin redesigning our paper money—minus, one presumes, the chemical alarms—but never recalled the old bills; civilization did not fall.

And yes, that's DKos, but it's still true. (Isn't that, by the way, another admission he wrote the thing, given he later defended his made-up-crap as being something he, personally, "heard" from someone he (dark glance around the room) could not name?

Anyway, it will be those three plus Trilateral Commission/Bildersbergs/Zionist Bankers guy.

@drewmtips notes that National Review's make-pretend endorsement of Romney, Huntsman, and Santorum is therefore down to -- surprise surprise! -- only Romney, at least if you're in Virginia, or otherwise wish your vote to have any effect on the outcome of the race.

Paranoid Personality Types

We're not crazy. Those are just Zionist lies spread by the CIA and utility companies.
