Ron Paul ignores voters, plans to steal convention…

From Brian R. Gentry of the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign Committee:

Fellow patriots, this battle is far from being over. In fact, it has just begun. Last night was nothing more than a “beauty pageant.” Getting delegates is what counts.

Yes, of course, If I only receive 22,673 votes out of 474,610 (4.77%) votes, I would call it a “beauty pageant” as well.

It’s amazing that he’s candid about how he feels about Republican voters in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Over the next couple of months local Republican Unit Committees around the state will hold “canvasses” or “mass meetings” in order to elect delegates to attend the Republican National Convention in September.

Each CD in Virginia is made up of various Republican Unit Committees. These committees will elect delegates to attend the district convention. At the district convention the delegates will select three delegates and three alternates to attend the September Republican National Convention in Minnesota.

We need to get as many Ron Paul supporters as we can to attend the Unit Committe [sic] meetings and vote for themselves and other Ron Paul supporters so they can attend the district convention — where we will then vote on our three Ron Paul supporters that paid the money to be a delegate to the national convention.

This is our chance to TAKE OVER the Republican Party in Virginia and return it to its core values and strict adherence to the Constitution.

Too bad this moron doesn’t seem to realize that these delegates from Virginia have to vote for the winner of the primary (John McCain) on the first ballot. And you can be pretty sure there isn’t going to be another ballot after that.

Ron Paul is having Kucinich problems…

Dennis Kucinich dropped out of the Presidential race a couple weeks ago because he was worried he might lose his primary seat to a Democratic primary challenger.

Ron Paul has a couple primary challengers (story #1, #2) and it looks like he’s a little worried too:

Here is another way you can help Ron Paul continue to defend freedom and keep the movement alive. Under Texas law Ron Paul can run for President and Congress at the same time and he is doing just that. If you have already given to help elect Ron Paul President, you can also help him by giving to his reelection campaign to Congress. Go to his congressional web site starting TODAY and donate to make sure Ron also wins his reelection campaign for Congress. Let’s help reelect Ron to Congress and elect him President at the same time. Let the Establishment know that the movement will continue, whether in Congress or in the White House. The Texas Primary election is March 4, so time is short for Ron to fund this campaign.


Federal election laws make it impossible for Congressman Paul to use any of his presidential funds for his congressional race so long as he remains a candidate for president. That creates a real problem because as long as Ron Paul continues to have success running for President, he will have a hard time securing funds for his congressional reelection.

Christ, talk about delusions of grandeur…

And then there’s this even more interesting part:

This message paid for by the Committee to Re-Elect Ron Paul


Paid for by the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign Committee.

The email was sent through his Presidential campaign’s email address — not his Congressional campaign’s email (regardless of the message saying it was paid for by his re-election campaign). I’m pretty sure it’s against campaign laws to use a service bought with one campaign to solicit money for another campaign otherwise I don’t think he would have a problem putting money from his Presidential election into his Congressional campaign.

And before you ask, the only reason I’m getting a message from Ron Paul is because I’ve subscribed to all the surviving Presidential campaigns’ mailing lists.

(By the way, vote Mitt Romney!)

Foot-in-mouth-diease strikes again…

First, Jim Moran:

“Ethically cleansed Baghdad”?…

Christ, when will this guy learn to shut up?

Here’s some ethic cleansing from Saddam Hussein:

At least he didn’t blame the “‘extraordinarily powerful’ pro-Israel lobby” like he did last time.

Second, Ron Paul:

From the AP: Paul keeps white supremacist donation:

Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has received a $500 campaign donation from a white supremacist, and the Texas congressman doesn’t plan to return it, an aide said Wednesday.

Don Black, of West Palm Beach, recently made the donation, according to campaign filings. He runs a Web site called Stormfront with the motto, “White Pride World Wide.” The site welcomes postings to the “Stormfront White Nationalist Community.”

“Dr. Paul stands for freedom, peace, prosperity and inalienable rights. If someone with small ideologies happens to contribute money to Ron, thinking he can influence Ron in any way, he’s wasted his money,” Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said. “Ron is going to take the money and try to spread the message of freedom.”

And Paul isn’t going to stop pandering to 9/11 conspiracy theorists as well, I guess?

“And that’s $500 less that this guy has to do whatever it is that he does,” Benton added.

Black said he supports Paul’s stance on ending the war in Iraq, securing U.S. borders and his opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants.

“We know that he’s not a white nationalist. He says he isn’t and we believe him, but on the issues, there’s only one choice,” Black said Wednesday.

There’s no need for a sarcastic comment after reading that, is there?

“We like his stand on tight borders and opposition to a police state,” Black told The Palm Beach Post earlier.

On his Web site, Black says he has been involved in “the White patriot movement for 30 years.”
