Man, I want to make this a humor peice because so few of the pauliacs have any sense of humor, but it deserves to be handled with some degree of decorum. I saw the above title on one of my search engine hits, and gave it a little thought. With a brain the size of a frogs, you can’t give much more than a little thought to something without forgetting to breathe. I started turning blue so I stopped thinking, and started typing.
Why aren’t there? I can come up with several reasons. Let’s start with the one that will cause a pauliac smooch fest on my blog. There just isn’t that much wrong with the guy. I mean, not much that they can’t justify with that ever credible phrase “it’s not in the constitution, so I voted against it.” It’s incredibly good cover. There are flaws to the reasoning, and I’ve discussed them here before. I was a little vilified for being a non believer, but i don’t believe in astrology, tarot, and George Bush either, so it bothered me not.
Another good explanation is that the best way to bring attention to someone is to criticize them. Ron Paul is the Mike Gravel of the republican candidates. Did you watch Mike Gravel chew up and spit out the other democrats on the debate? they didn’t argue with him. They folded their hands and smiled no matter how he attacked their records. Why? For the same reason girls ignore you guys when you walk up to them, and start talking to them in a bar. Because if you ignore someone they may go away. Those competing with Ron don’t want him getting noticed. All publicity is good publicity for Ron. Even me.
another good bet is that the blog world appears to be either apathetic or liberal for the most part. So, they either don’t care, or they don’t dislike him. Ron Paul is someone the democrats think they can beat handily because they think he is about a turnip shy of a truckload. They don’t blog against him because they don’t know he hates them.
My last plausible cause for the lack of anti Paul blogs is they require work. I write about Paul maybe one post out of five on the average. There just isn’t that much out there that you don’t have to work to find. He only releases the feel good Ron Paul is the messiah crap on his blog, and the news organizations say as little as possible about him. People are lazy. You want an easy cheesy punching bag you nail Clinton or Romney. They have plenty of history to attack, and all Ron has is his whole anti-government thing.
Well, you can zap his followers pretty good. Most of them appear to be thumbsuckers, and mouth breathers, with the occassional thumbsucking, mouth breathing militiamen thrown in. Although I did meet an anti-zionist (self proclaimed) muslim who loves the guy. His blog is at ahmed Ismael I believe…check out oldephartintraining if you want to find ahmed.
