Know what I’m curious about? I’m curious as to whether there is any video out there of some citizen journalist shoving a microphone in Ron Paul’s face and asking him about some conspiracy theory – any conspiracy theory at all – and Paul just flatly tells the person asking the question that he’s being ridiculous. We already have Ron Paul on the record grousing aloud about the grassy knoll and (under the most charitable possible interpretation of the facts) humoring 9/11 truthers. I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised to find this in response to “Hey, what about those Bildebergers?”
Of course, if you REALLY want a chuckle, fast forward to the 8:40 mark of this clip for a chance to hear Ron Paul literally say, verbatim and without irony, “Yeah, well, that sure is a sign that [Rick Perry] is very much involved in the international conspiracy!”
At this point, I think we should try to find if there is honestly a conspiracy theory he will flatly shoot down – “Do you think the moon landing was staged?” You know, absolutely crazy stuff, like, “Do you think the United States Government is going to build a wall to keep people from escaping to Mexico?” I want to know if there are any that he will flatly dismiss out of hand.
You know, other than the conspiracy wherein there are Muslim terrorists who are trying to destroy the United States.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This is not one of those stupid, contrarian takes where I’m saying something just for shock value just to get clicks. Make no mistakes – Hillary Clinton may have lost by about 20 points last night, but she emerged from New Hampshire as the biggest winner of the night, and it was not close. Let’s make one thing clear: | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Marco Rubio’s concession speech tonight did not get full air time on CNN, but they showed the most important part. Listen to Senator Rubio humbly explain his loss: “I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand, I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you, it’s on me.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
