And here I was worried that the media, the Team Elephant establishment, and the other GOP candidates were going to take down Ron Paul. It appears he’s pretty good at it himself.
Ron Paul is taking “no comment” to a whole new level.
The Republican presidential candidate walked out on a CNN interview Wednesday following a heated discussion over racist newsletters that were sent out in his name more than two decades ago.
The usually mild-mannered, Texas congressman – who’s leading in some Iowa polls – became irked when network reporter Gloria Borger pressed Paul about the newsletters.
Paul said he was sick of being “pestered” by reporters about the issue.
He can’t seriously believe that he can withstand allegations of racism and bigotry by running away, can he? I admire the guy, to be sure, but even I have issues with the way he handled this.
*sigh* I guess I’d better get used to the term “President Romney” in 2013.

Yeah, saw that on American CNN.* Personally, I didn’t think it looked as bad as you make out. Then again, maybe I’ve been drinking too much kool aid since Obama actually got a chuckle out of me in his last press conference (dissed all the reporters with a simple, “aloha”.).**
*We get CNN International and now the new addition, US CNN, over here. The US edition is waaaaay more right wing than CNN international.
** But what’s with the plastic Greek/Roman pillars??? Tacky is an understatement.

Here we go again. Another contender lifted to saviour status only to come tumbling down to earth.
Dump Ron Paul. Bring in Ron Jeremy instead. At least his sins are already out for everyone to see…

I like it. “Ron Jeremy – the man with the right tool to get the job done”.

I think we can take this a step further. I will be in touch.
