Uh-oh, Ron Paul needs a nap! Poor old grampa crankypants walked out of an interview with CNN’s Gloria Borger after she repeatedly asked him, as everyone has been doing for the last half-decade, whether he had read any of the murderously racist tirades of the attention-deprived libertarians writing for one of his eponymous newsletters in the 80s and 90s. You never thought it could happen, but apparently even Ron Paul gets tired of saying the word “NO” over and over sometimes!
When Borger asked him if this was a legitimate topic, he became testy saying, “Yeah and when you get the answer, it’s legitimate that you sort of take the answers I gave. You know what the answer is? I didn’t write them, didn’t read them at the time, and I disavow them. This is the answer.”
(PSSSST, RON PAUL: You know you’re still running for the GOP nomination, right? Say “disavow” a little more quietly.)
