Well, it finally happened. You managed to get me irritated enough to go look around and see what I could make of the whole “ignore ron” myth. It is. A myth I mean, smart one. I’ll grant that he isn’t front page news on every news site, but neither are the candidates ranked 3 or 4 above him either.
I’ll try to type slowly so you can keep up. Major news organizations are almost all publically held companies that have a responsibility to their share holders. The way they live up to this responsibility is to report the things people wish to hear about. Are you with me so far? good. Sit still, you’re very distracting. So if say, Paris Hilton’s phone number is given to some unsuspecting college student, and Ron Paul comes up with a cure for the common cold, you will just have to understand that Paris’s old phone number is more newsworthy, and therefore more important.
What I recommend to you then is this. Will you all please take your hands off the safeties of your Uzi’s? Thank you. What you can do since you are Ron Paul followers, and as such very adept at manipulating your trigger happy fingers across a keyboard, is go to one of the major News sites. On the home page there will be a rectangular box (iIknow this because I went and checked so that I could ABC this for you) where you can type in what you wish to search for. When you have finished typing in Charlton Heston, Ruby Ridge, and Waco, enter Ron Paul’s name in the little box. Thats R-o-n P-a-u-l. No you don’t have to capitalize, I was just being anal.
Once you have placed his name in the little box click on the little square box to the right of the rectangular box. A list will magically appear in front of you. No, its not like Harry Houdini, it’s more like Bullwinkle Moose. The paragraphs that you see before you will either talk about Ron Paul or about Ron johnson and Paul Martin. I only had this problem on MSNBC. the rest were all Ron Paul. just click on the underlined words and again you will magically see a story appear. Yes, its still a story even though it doesn’t begin “once upon a time.” My favorite was Ron Paul one of only two congressman to vote against money to try civil rights cases. Stop your cheering.
Do we have any questions. Good. Then quit your damn whining and go read. Yes, its okay to move your lips and sound out large words.
Incidentally, CNN says he only raised about 1.5 million projected for the quarter. They’ve dropped him down the toilet folks.
