Bob Krumm basically asserts that Ron Paul is pulling all of the wackos out of the Republican Party, and in doing so somehow giving those who are left supporting the remaining *cough cough* conservative *cough cough* candidates more credibility.
Still, Ron Paulâ€™s nut jobs are doing the GOP a huge favor. For yearsâ€“especially the Clinton yearsâ€“Republicans have been saddled with a few of their own â€œblack helicopterâ€ crowd.
Sadly, this is a prime example of just how out of touch mainstream Republicans really are. It seems like they will blindly follow anything with a trunk as long as something that smells like money is coming out of its butt. Although they exist (in every camp), there aren’t nearly as many wackos supporting Dr. Paul as Krumm suggests. Mostly, Dr. Paul’s supporters are regular people who are sick of getting screwed over by the status quo, business as usual candidates that the Republicrats throw up at every election.
The fact that many of his supporters are smart enough to use a computer effectively doesn’t make them crazy.
Still, given the choice, I’d rather run with the “nutbags” than with the group of in-denial socialists in the Republican Party that are so easily scared by them.
