Have we finally found a Paul we can get behind for President? [UPDATED]
And by “we,” I mean those of us who were sickened by the elder Paul’s foreign policy ideas? Because the son doesn’t sound too terribly much like the father.
It’s important to remember that the establishment backed a moderate KY attorney general over Paul in the GOP primaries. And now they’re seeking to redefine conservatism and pretend that, pushing for the nomination of Bush /Christie or Rubio, is akin to backing a conservative candidate.
Which is what all you ungrateful conservative bastards have been clamoring for, ain’t it? Well, here he is. Picked by the “Conservative Victory Project.” Which has conservative right in its name, for Chrissakes.
What more do you stupid fringe Hobbity rightwingers want?
But I suspect most of us won’t be fooled. With the exception of all the sites that will tell us Paul can’t win, and that we need to get behind Bush. Whom we should be ignoring anyway.
update: was just harangued and unfollowed on Twitter by a PATRIOT for this post. Which I’m quite sure he didn’t read. His argument is that Paul has accomplished nothing, and that his father was a pork gatherer. When I pointed out that he forced to the floor a bill that would deny the MB advanced weaponry, the PATRIOT’S response was, “see? He couldn’t get enough people to follow him. NO RESULTS!”
I’d point out that by his own standards he should be voting for Obama, but frankly, I’d rather not have stupid people following me on Twitter, anyway. Call it a pruning.
