Why Ron Paul Isn’t Libertarian Enoughby Doug Mataconis
Extreme Mortman has a tongue in cheek list:
Not too long ago, Extreme Mortman conducted a Ron Paul online experiment. What would happen, we queried, if we just mentioned Ron Paulâ€™s name a bunch of times with some inconsequential silly set-up. Would anyone notice?
The results were fascinating. The Ron Paul faithful flocked our way. They swarmed this blog. But they were quite pleasant. They wiped their feet before entering. None of them swiped any of our pieces of silverware or left odd stains in the toilet. They all respected our noon check out time and honorably recorded any use of the minibar.
All in all, success.Â Happy times.
We’ve noticed much the same thing here at The Liberty Papers, and it’s definitely and interesting phenomenon.
In this post, though, Mortman has a little fun with the Paul supporters. A few my favorites from the list:
9. When the National Hurricane Center suggests Ron Paul take shelter, he does.
8. Ron Paulâ€™s campaign bus has a license plate. It also uses the Interstate highway system, which has no toll booths.
6. Ron Paul accepts that Pluto is no longer a planet, but still says the other eight are.
5. A tie: Ron Paulâ€™s TV picks up UHF channels.
Ron Paul shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die. Oh wait, thatâ€™s Johnny Cash.
My advice to the Ron Paul supporters out there, don’t take this so seriously. After all, politics is America’s oldest spectator sport.
