Ron Paul’s Iowa Campaign Hoping For Catastrophic Death Blizzard

by Wonkette Jr.

I'm dreaming of a White Power Christmas ....Thanks to the Republicans destroying the Earth’s climate, Iowa is expected to be warm and dry and sunny on January 3. This is apparently very bad news for Ron Paul, because the lack of the usual Iowa Blizzard on Caucus Day means that the regular old Republican welfare-farmer corn-syrup farmers on their Medicare-provided Hoverounds might actually turn out to support that liberal devil-cultist Mitt Romney or what’s his name, the fat amoral jewelry-debt baby who takes all the “consulting money” from Big Government. See, Ron Paul supporters were hoping for a record-breaking blizzard, so they could re-enact those wintry scenes from Lord of the Rings, when Luke gets mugged by a fleet-footed snow monster.

Bloomberg reports:

The best scenario for his Republican presidential bid would be a blizzard in Iowa on Jan. 3, when voting at 1,774 precinct caucuses officially starts the party’s nominating process, political experts say. That’s because supporters of the Texas congressman are so committed they’ll turn out whatever the conditions, while other candidates appear to have more fair-weather backers.

In this case, they are literally fair-weather friends, as they’re not moving away from the flat screen if they have to salt a path down the driveway for their Rascal.

In other Ron Paul news, here is an Iowa campaign photo of an unloved child tragically dressed up as a “Ron Paul Superhero,” because why not ruin your kids’ life with an idiotic political stunt, right? [Bloomberg/SF Gate]

Ron Paul is hoping for a WHITEOUT.

Lionel[redacted]Esq December 29, 2011 at 3:30 pm

But, if you get a whiteout, Santorum will leave a stain……

PalinzADummy December 29, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Santorum's been trying to make his mark for nigh on 40 years now. Would you deny him that fleeting moment of pleasure? Could you?

Yeah, me too.

Baconzgood December 29, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Seriously man, "The best scenario for his Republican presidential bid would be a blizzard in Iowa".

Read that 3 times in a row.

I would have paid $100 to hand that article to Ron Paul.

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Whatever the weather, the Republiklan Caucus is always a whiteout. But Paultards are the only ones insane enough to go out in a blizzard.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 12:42 am

He may be hoping for a whiteout, but from what I hear, Ron and his people are also fully prepared for a race war. Helter Skelter, baby; Helter Skelter; it's a Paulite Christmas.

drpaul2012 December 29, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Meh, no one has cared who wins Iowa since President Robertson ran the table.

Losing a child *once* might be unfortunate, but losing the same one repeatedly just sounds like carelessness.*

SudsMcKenzie December 29, 2011 at 3:22 pm

On a positive note, Ron can spend the day down at the park feeding squirrels.

Yeah….Ron's supporters are "committed" all right. Unfortunately it's really really hard to pull a lever when you're in a straight jacket.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 12:58 am

You'd also be surprised how hard it is to pull a lever or write legibly when you're blazed out of your mind. Also.

coolhandnuke December 29, 2011 at 3:24 pm

You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life."

Biel_ze_Bubba December 29, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Elect Ron Paul, and he'll do away with those gubmint-created weather prediction things. Free enterprise means you're free to deal with (or suffer from) the weather without gubmint interference.

DerrickWildcat December 29, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Those Ron Paul supporter fans are kinda like those Howard Stern fans.

SexySmurf December 29, 2011 at 3:26 pm

The only way Ron Paul can win the nomination is if Hell (AKA Iowa) literally freezes over.

Re: That poor child dressed up as superhero RP. His parents should lose custody. Just sayin'.

It's tantamount to child abuse. Or, as they say on Fux "indoctrination".

tessiee December 29, 2011 at 9:20 pm

It's tantamount to child abuse. Or, as they say on Fux "parenting".

NogFilledExistence December 29, 2011 at 3:44 pm

kid's smile = earning parental approval and nothing else

Dudleydidwrong December 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm

I really feel for that kid. Back in '48 (1948 that is) my parents dressed me up like that only the writing on the front said "WE WANT DEWEY!" Never got over it. Finally ran away from home, joined the circus and now I'm stuck in a clown car with nine fucking Republicans.

poncho_pilot December 29, 2011 at 4:08 pm

could've been worse: back in '48 you still could've been dressed up as a Ron Paul superhero. 1848, even.

DaRooster December 29, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Complete with rubber nose eyebrows.

jodyleek December 29, 2011 at 3:56 pm

The real question that needs to be asked is, how the hell did that super dorky dad of said child get an attractive woman (or any woman for that matter) to reproduce with him? The Ron Paul crowd is similar to the band Rush's fan base: a sausage fest comprised of a bunch of completely unfuckable nerds. My only guess is that the guy has a trust fund.

poncho_pilot December 29, 2011 at 4:09 pm

two words: mustache ride.

Biel_ze_Bubba December 29, 2011 at 4:18 pm

She's the best wife money can buy.

Blueb4sunrise December 29, 2011 at 4:33 pm

I'm hoping that the kid said he'd only do it for $100.

Fare la Volpe December 29, 2011 at 4:48 pm

Hopefully Child Protective Services can swing by and fill up their monthly quota before the new year!

Ah. that whole baby's snatch fuckfest brings back such memories. Remember when the Paultards defended a serial child abuser? Yeah, good times.

SorosBot December 29, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Ah, good times; it's been a while since we've had a good troll infestation. That one was especially good as the teabaggers were trolling to defend a child abuser.

Sure that kid is smiling now, but wait until he finds out that his super-powers in Paultardia are limited to the ability to work a 12-hour day at the age of 10, and the right to sell his testicles and other soft meats to free-market organ brokers.

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 4:53 pm

I'm going to wake up tonight, think of this comment and start laughing again.

That photo is shocking — when the hell did Ron Paul fans learn how to reproduce?

Jukesgrrl December 29, 2011 at 4:31 pm

Yes, those pesky children always want to be fed, taken to the doctor, own pets, etc., and they don't even earn their keep. On top of that they put the parents in contact with PUBLIC education and heaven knows that'll be first in line for abolition in Paultardville.

Who knew Elmer Fudd was a conservative superhero?

Rotundo_ December 29, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I seem to recall one cartoon where he recites "My Name is Elmer J. Fudd, I am a millionaire, I own a mansion and a yacht." repeatedly, so there is that. He also pretends to be nuts to avoid the IRS in that one, so since he isn't *genuinely* nuts, he probably is more of an independent, as sane republicans are calling themselves these days.

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 4:16 pm

He's bald and has a gun. How could you not see the obvious?

i'm torn. on one hand, Ron Paul winning the nomination would probably secure it for Obama. on the other hand, that would be 400 years of hearing Paultards talk about Ron Paul's victory and how a giant conspiracy is the real reason Paul lost to Obama.

floating cities in the ocean are starting to sound like a good idea…

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 4:21 pm

They are already attributing the Santorum Surge to a media conspiracy to bring down the Great Dr. Ron Paul.

poncho_pilot December 29, 2011 at 4:31 pm

well, of course! Ron Paul does not make mistakes. ever. Dr. Personal Responsibility is always a victim.

Biel_ze_Bubba December 29, 2011 at 5:15 pm

400 years of hearing Paultards talk about Ron Paul's victory, vs. 4 years of any one of these GOP re†ards in the White House? I'm all ears.

i agree but i don't think any of the other clowns have a shot either.

MaxNeanderthal December 29, 2011 at 3:36 pm

So let me get this straight, He's hoping to win the vote by having people not vote? Sounds like the main GOP strategy for 2012.

i don't libertarians, especially, are big on the whole democracy thing. why do we even bother voting when the libertarians are right about everything and the rest of us are dumb?

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 4:22 pm

Hell, who doesn't want a blizzard on the day we're (some? most of us?) due back at work. For once I think I can relate to a Paultardian's wishful bleating.

SorosBot December 29, 2011 at 3:58 pm

You wanted a blizzard last Tuesday?

Mumbletypeg December 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm

No, I get the shift sandwich: this being the week-in-between long holiday weekends, which fellow workers merged into a 10-day spree, while I cover the absentees' desks & phones during these understaffed workdays. Others' prolonged illnesses, seniority and haste in petitioning their scheduled absence, obligates me as 'essential personnel' — so next Tuesday would be just fine to get snowebound at home rather than sit here and take more calls as to who *else* isn't gonna make it in.

drpaul2012 December 29, 2011 at 4:04 pm

There are plenty of localized natural disasters that can accomplish the same thing without contributing to a Paul victory.

drpaul2012 December 29, 2011 at 3:49 pm

Nothing screams Revolution like bumming a ride from your grandparents to the Iowa caucuses so you can vote for a feeble 80 year old crank.

ManchuCandidate December 29, 2011 at 3:50 pm

So dedicated. So true to the cause. Much like a Tauntaun. I suspect that the last words many a Paultard will hear in the great "white out of 2012" is: "And I thought they smelled bad on the outside!"

poorgradstudent December 29, 2011 at 3:50 pm

Even Ron Paul is realizing that America will have to go all Thunderdome for him to have a shot, and even then he'll probably just be running a small fiefdom where southern Illinois used to be. And instead of building a libertarian/neo-feudal paradise he and his followers will have to dedicate their energies toward fighting off marauding bands of Lyndon LaRouche fans.

Radiotherapy December 29, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Bring out the Blizztards.

dadanarchist December 29, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Better call the United Nations and get them to fire up that weather machine they built with the Illuminati.

Ducksworthy December 29, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Superhero RP is missing an "i".

user-of-owls December 29, 2011 at 4:25 pm

There is no "I" in Ron Paul!

ha ha. HA HA HA. God, I could hardly spit that out without laughing so hard I peed myself.

Ducksworthy December 29, 2011 at 6:02 pm

That's kinda sad Mr. Owls.

user-of-owls December 29, 2011 at 8:46 pm

Originally, it was meant as a jab at Ron Paul's rather formidable ego. But it almost works better the other way.

Man, I crack myself up!

Ducksworthy December 29, 2011 at 4:14 pm

But will Ron Paul bring in his son's head stomping goons and sic them on the opposition?

PalinzADummy December 29, 2011 at 8:12 pm

It's worked for him so far.

ifthethunderdontgetya December 29, 2011 at 4:18 pm

I'm dreaming of a white caucus…"

- Ron Paul

Marcus Bachmann's version is almost the same.

Jukesgrrl December 29, 2011 at 4:26 pm

Yeah! Sounds like WELFARE to me.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 12:55 am

Damn welfare squirrels; always beggin' and hustlin' for a nut. Get a real jerb. They're almost as bad as those damned Nebraska welfare racoons.

user-of-owls December 29, 2011 at 4:40 pm

This just in: The KORN Eyewitness News team has learned that a very important member of Michelle Bachmann's campaign staff here has jumped ship and joined the Ron Paul campaign.

Bachmann said Jim Cantore made the jump after “he was offered a men's medium sexy blue parka to go to work for the Paul campaign.”

Chichikovovich December 29, 2011 at 5:13 pm

KORN? Do they still have Charlie Farquharson as anchorman?

user-of-owls December 29, 2011 at 8:44 pm

No, Charlie got sent down during the Rural Purge.

user-of-owls December 29, 2011 at 4:43 pm

The only things outside in an Iowa blizzard are mad cows and Ronery-men.

owhatever December 29, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Then out of the west, the sound of thundering hooves and the zombie Ronald Reagan arrives to win Iowa by an unexpected landslide of write-in votes.

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 5:04 pm

I'm still betting on Sarah Palin, dressed as a Valkyrie, on a unicorn, bathed in light, with Wagner playing in the background.

Loaded_Pants December 29, 2011 at 5:14 pm

For some reason, I can picture that so easily.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 1:15 am

I know, right? It's scary how easily one can envision this stunt waiting to happen.

Chichikovovich December 29, 2011 at 5:24 pm

Well, Ron Paul is a vicious gnome who is obsessed with gold. So that fits too.

prommie December 29, 2011 at 4:50 pm

I see that Romney is on top now, with Santorum having oozed down to second place.

weejee December 29, 2011 at 4:58 pm

That's what happens when you use a mitten for a condom.

Loaded_Pants December 29, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Santorum produces his own slippery slope.

HarryButtle December 29, 2011 at 6:04 pm

SANTORUM IS NUMBER TWO! SANTORUM IS NUMBER TWO!

Negligently_Joe December 29, 2011 at 6:35 pm

So what you're saying is that the Santorum surge was a bit puffed frothed up and has now collapsed under its own weight?

Arken December 29, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Ron Paul 2012 – He's not that racist

Negligently_Joe December 29, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Ron Paul 2012- Because we can't know for certain that he believes the racist things that he published.

Can someone please point me to the last presidential candidate who was given this much leeway?

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 5:48 pm

Ron Paul is that crazy uncle that comes over during the holidays that is always trying to take off his pants.

Negligently_Joe December 29, 2011 at 5:51 pm

Really? I thought that was Mark Foley.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 1:20 am

It's really funny you say the "certain" thing, because I think the revelation of his racist and homophobic newsletters might actually help him in a GOP primary, particularly if the actual author is ambiguous enough that you can't pin it on Paul, but sure eough that he could be the writer. It's the best of both worlds; you get to attract the racists without formally joining them.

Negligently_Joe December 30, 2011 at 2:03 am

I think the only thing there that's inaccurate is your excessively generous implication that there are some GOP voters out there who might still be turned off by racism.

The more complete analysis would be that there are a handful of GOP voters who hate perceiving themselves as racist, and for these individuals, the fact that Ron Paul cannot be CONCLUSIVELY PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW to agree with the things he published, IN HIS HEART, means they don't have to see themselves as complicit in racism for supporting him, even though they totally get where he was coming from.

PalinzADummy December 29, 2011 at 7:43 pm

That's what he's saying now, fer realz. "It was only EIGHT sentences, and they were only MILDLY racist."

hagajim December 29, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Ya have to love it when shitty weather can determine who has the big momentum (or Joementum) leaving one of the smallest, shitholiest (sorry Iowa) states in the country.

hagajim December 29, 2011 at 5:01 pm

According to the headlines SANTORUM SURGING in Iowa….what kind of slippery gross mess is that ginna cause….ewwww!

Biel_ze_Bubba December 29, 2011 at 5:03 pm

I was gonna make a joke about the "Ronulans" … but it turns out that these loons already use the word among themselves. Sort of like the Kardashians, I guess.

poncho_pilot December 29, 2011 at 5:54 pm

but the Vulcans were the highly logical ones. isn't that one of the Paultard ideas? rationality and logic. or maybe Paulcan sounds too much like Blimpkin…

LetUsBray December 29, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Aww, don't tell me they take all the fun out of using "racists living in their moms' basements who like their weed" by calling themselves that, too.

Beowoof December 29, 2011 at 5:04 pm

And here I thought they were already buried in a blizzard of right wing bullshit.

Jukesgrrl December 29, 2011 at 5:15 pm

No wonder Republicans don't want to improve the environment. Global warming is their friend.

DerrickWildcat December 29, 2011 at 5:24 pm

If Paul wins, Santorum will all be like, "I can't believe that worthless piece of shit Paul won this fucking thing. God fucking damn it! I've spend every fucking second of every fucking day for the last 3 months traveling to every fucking county in this God damned shithole excuse for a State and had to listen to every imaginable imbecilic dirtbilly in overalls, stupid rubber boots, a hoody and a moronic seed corn hat go on and on about some idiotic whatever the hell they were talking about…and these fuck sticks go ahead and vote for that god damned shit vampire! Son of a fuckin' bitch!!"

GOPCrusher December 29, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Hey wait a minute! We don't all wear seed corn hats. Some of us wear tractor hats.

WIDTAP December 29, 2011 at 6:11 pm

Whoah-ho! Mister Fancy Hats!

DerrickWildcat December 29, 2011 at 6:15 pm

John Deere

Dudleydidwrong December 29, 2011 at 6:03 pm

That response is in good taste–in Iowa.

PalinzADummy December 29, 2011 at 7:45 pm

"Shit vampire" FTW.

Guppy December 29, 2011 at 6:47 pm

"the regular old Republican welfare-farmer corn-syrup farmers (…) might actually turn out to support that liberal devil-cultist Mitt Romney"

But wouldn't Michele Bachmann caucus for herself instead?

Negligently_Joe December 29, 2011 at 7:12 pm

So as it happens, I'm also hoping for a catastrophic death blizzard to hit Iowa, but mainly in the hopes that the Iowa Paultards will get snowed in at the caucuses and be forced to eat each other to survive.

PalinzADummy December 29, 2011 at 7:46 pm

That's … very … nice, dear. I think.

ttommyunger December 29, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Too early to predict snowfall, but the "Doofus Front" that has been stationary over the entire State of Iowa for the last few weeks is not expected to lift any time soon.

Negropolis December 30, 2011 at 1:23 am

Ron & Co. have been waiting on the Apocalypse their entire lives, so wishing for a Catastrohphic Death Blizzard sits right in their wheelhouse, and doesn't required expending too much additional psychic energy.

bisky71 December 30, 2011 at 4:55 am

RP's campaign never stated good weather would be detrimental. This is a manufactured story based on a speculation of Bloomberg that the other candidates don't have supporters enthusiastic enough to show up in bad weather. As for the climate it is great but could be a bit warmer. Unfornutelt the earth has been cooling for 7 years with no average warming for 15. Though it has generally been warming for 300 as a part of a 1000 year cycle, no increase of slope with fossil fuels. When it was warmer 1000 yrs ago during the Medieval Warm Period people thrived with vineyards in England. But you can pay the World Band to change the weather if you want. After that I have a bridge for sale.

Baconzgood December 29, 2011 at 3:46 pm

These puns…..You people aren't white in head.

SorosBot December 29, 2011 at 3:57 pm

I ain’t sayin’ you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don’t mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don’t think twice, it’s all white

Lionel[redacted]Esq December 29, 2011 at 3:48 pm

And yet in Iowa, all is white with the world.

Chichikovovich December 29, 2011 at 4:33 pm

You gotta fight, for your whites, to paaaaaaa…tay

Baconzgood December 29, 2011 at 4:49 pm

You pull the pig tails of the ones you like the most.

yyyaz December 29, 2011 at 5:11 pm

If Loving U. is Wong, I don't wanna be white.

Radiotherapy December 29, 2011 at 5:12 pm

I'm very ticklish.
