My Silence on Ron Paul

A friend asked why I haven’t written about Ron Paul. The reason is that I think the issue has been covered ad nauseum by better writers than me.

Like Stephen Bainbridge.

Paul’s campaign has attracted “an imposing collection of Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Holocaust Deniers, 9/11 “Truthers” and other paranoid and discredited conspiracists.”

In short, the guy’s a nutjob – or at best supported by nutjobs. Either way I hope he cleans out the idiots from the Republican Party by becoming flypaper for them – and then bolts the party.

I’m a libertarian – small “l” not a big one.

    Sometimes I wonder how the likes of Ron Paul, Huckerbie, Obama, Edwards, get any votes atall. One of life’s mysteries.For me there’s only one grown up amongst the whole lot of them on either side and that’s Fred Thompson.[Well OK, McCain and Giuliani would qualify too.]

  2. Scott Kirwin:

    I could live with Thompson, McCain or Rudy. On the Democrat side…
    I could live with Jim Webb.

    Too bad he’s not running.
