Recently, on Liberty Pundit, this statement was posted about Ron Paul: “…this man could eat a live baby on national television and it wouldn’t matter a bit to his lunatic, kook supporters.” (Original post: Ron Paul Scandal)
Eating a live baby is a gross exaggeration, but yes, Ron Paul could theoretically do something terrible and this kook would still support him.
To continue with the horrific metaphor of eating live babies, Ron Paul would still get my vote because all of his opponents have eaten dozens of live babies already. And then to make matters worse, they either pretended they never ate the babies even though we all saw them eat babies on national television, or they tried to convince me that those were cantaloupes, when any idiot could see they were babies.
The “dirt” that gets dug up on Ron Paul, compared to the smoldering mess that our government has gotten us into, is just not very compelling to Ron Paul supporters. So, a few anti-Semites and KKK members support Ron Paul. Big deal. So do vegans, nice old ladies, Green Party members, and good Christian folk. Ron Paul is an honest man. He has integrity. That puts him head and shoulders above the competition. That’s why we are so enthusiastic about his candidacy.
Now, if Ron Paul actually eats a live baby…I’ll think about registering as a Democrat and voting for Kucinich instead. Vegans don’t eat babies.
