Vlad the Candidate Ron Paul is shifting to his re-election bid.

Door, ass, etc.

The worst thing about this guy's campaign: Otherwise sensible people thought that Paul represented something genuine. Oh well.

Maybe the Huckabee campaign can use the leftover spray-paint.

Many of whom have given their legs, arms and lives; (link...) Oh well.

The key word is genuine.

The key word is genuine. Don't pretend that you don't know what I'm talking about.

If he was an anti-war candidate without all of the other baggage, I'd buy that for a nickel. He's opposed to the war because he thinks it's a Semitic conspiracy.

For what that's worth, I'm on record as having been opposed to this war, even before it began, and if you've read five words of what I've said in the five or so years I've been on this blog or SKB's before that, you'd know it.

Paul can take his gold standard and his militias and his lynch mobs, hop in his surrey with the right-wing fringe on top, and go the fuck back to Texas.

The key word is genuine.

Yeah, those poor rubes in the service have no idea what's going on.

Baggage? (link...) Like disavowing a war you promoted and funded?

I've decided like Barnum, "There is a sucker born every minute". For those not looking to get taken in by the unicorn; (link...)

Funny, I think that this was Paul's first rejected campaign slogan.

i'm suprised

I thought Paul was in for the long haul.

Looked to me like he was getting Nader voters or least he did in the 10th ward..23% in the Fort..21% on campus.

He got 25% in Mont,21% in Wash.& SD,19% in Me,17% in Alaska & 16% in Min.

I thought his vote % would continue to rise because GOP turnout will drop as McCain gets ever closer to winning the nomination.

Had a shot @ good % in Wis,RI,Ver,Haw,Id & Ore.

Still might.

Christ. Is there an adult in Paul's crowd?
