Media Now Trying To Kill Ron Paul’s Campaign With TOO MUCH Attention

Celebrity life is hard.

Remember how Ron Paul has been shuffling around complaining, for decades, about the newz media always ignoring his presidential campaigns to death? Those were the days! Now he is complaining that they are MOBBING his campaign, also to death, because of an actual mob of journalists who chased after him into a New Hampshire diner and then victoriously announced they had him surrounded, to prevent him from hanging out with voters, or something. Why can’t they just be obsessively attentive in peace?

From The Hill:

Barely able to move through the restaurant as hundreds of journalists and videographers surrounded him on all sides, Paul ignored the questions being lobbed at him and slowly inched through the restaurant, offering a few autographs to supporters along the way.

“Guys, you’ve got to take it easy,” shouted one Paul staffer, imploring the media to give the congressman some space.

No such luck.

“Ron Paul: We have you surrounded. We are the media,” sounded the voice from a megaphone as Paul staffers ushered him into a waiting SUV, just minutes after he arrived at the restaurant.

So who was the cocky goon with the megaphone, probably Wolf Blitzer?

Holding the megaphone was a man dressed roughly as a wizard, with shaggy hair and tousled beard, wearing a massive black boot upside down on his head.

Yeah, Wolf Blitzer.

(UPDATE: Just kidding, maybe? The screaming wizard might also be real American hero and presidential candidate Vermin Supreme, who will be leading in the polls next week. SAME DIFFERENCE.)

Anyway, then some dingbat from CNN asked Ron Paul in an interview afterward why he loathes New Hampshire voters so much that his hatred would cause him (?) to flee a suffocating crush of reporters, to which Paul responded by wandering away in disgust:

Hooray, so that happened! Ron Paul also reiterated his pledges to dismantle the Department of Education and to withdraw the U.S. from the United Nations today, but… meh. [The Hill/ The Caucus blog]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    I think the wizard referred to herein is one Vermin Supreme, an, um, "alternative" candidate for Preznit. I'd vote for him over MittBot 9000.
    http://www.verminsupreme.com/

    • not that Dewey

      Only through Vermin Supreme's dilligent campaigning over the years have certain questions and issues of policy come to the foreground, specifically…

      Dental Hygiene Law
      Flying Monkey Public Safety Assurance Program
      Time Travel Research Funding

      Yup. He's got my vote.

      • Negropolis

        He had me at "Flying Monkey".

          If Vermin Supreme didn't exist, it would be necessary to invent him.

      • SorosBot

        That's true; how dare I suggest that he wrote those articles just because his name was on them, they included a bunch of "I" statements and he claimed authorship at the time when now he's claimed someone else wrote them, and he published the articles under his name without even reading them, without providing any evidence or giving any indication who really wrote them if he didn't..

      Ran into a group of student at an Indian Restaurant where I was hoping to have a quiet dinner with my husband – thought, "aw, how cute, a bunch of nerds going out to dinner together," and then one of them opened his mouth and I knew they were Paultards. My husband was like, "how do you know they're Paultards?" and I replied, "because from what they're saying they seem kind of stupid and mean-spirited." They were organizing some media event, I gathered, from their rather loud maunderings in a nearly empty restaurant.

    From Making Light*:

    On the surface, Paul talks like a libertarian with a mixed bag of daffy ideas that makes him attractive to a variety of non-orthodox political types. But if you dig into his record even a little bit you find that he walks just like a Republican, (albeit one with a byzantine mind and a super villain's fondness for overly complicated gambits).

    Add in his obsessions with the gold standard and he's a shark tank away from being a Bond Villain.

        He may be gone, but not forgotten; and quoted frequently. What a fucking genius!

      David Lo Pan endorses Mittens? (in regards to photo of Welch on CNN page) http://media.screened.com/uploads/0/5125/539571-l

    • flamingpdog

      Could we please just ship both Jack and Mitt to China so they can live with our jobs until the day they die?

  • Antispandex

    Any amount of attention is too much, really.

  • Millennial Malaise

    Like all the boobs before him, Ron Paul has finally been granted the double edged gift of scrutiny. Sure, he's smarter and more capable than almost all of them (you know Mittens2000 is upgraded as often as iTunes) but he's still too scary right ring for most sane-minded Americans.

    The reason John Huntsman will never get a chance at bat is because the Mormon quota is full. Know your role and get back in line!

  • lnardozi

    Oh, my goodness they SHOULD be worried. I have a made a promise (and so have a lot of my friends) that if Dr. Paul is not nominated, NO REPUBLICAN WILL RECEIVE MY VOTE. And that's speaking as a Republican of 30 years. I've even set up a website http://RonPaulPromise.com where you can pledge to Dr. Paul as well. I'm not going to let the only candidate I've seen in the past 30 years that isn't the lesser of two evils slip by! My vote might well be the one that elects my senators, congressmen, state senators, councilmen, governors, judges, etc. but I'm willing to pass it up if Ron Paul isn't on the ticket. You WILL provide us with candidates that adhere to the Liberty platform or we will make sure that NONE OF YOU are reelected.

    • SorosBot

      Yes, we should all make sure Mr. Paul is nominated; because let's face it, seeing his crazy ranting the entire campaign would be funny, and guarantee Obama's reelection.

      Or do you actually think we should support the racist, woman-hating, anti-freedom crazy old man with insane ideas on economics because he happens to be good on the military and the war on drugs?

      Cthulhu is also the lesser of two evils but I'm not going to support Him/Her/It, either.

      • Huevos Ocupados

        Where does Dr. Cthulhu stand on legalizing heroin?

          True fact:

          Is mass-ssarati sha mushi lipshuru ruxisha limnuti
          Pisha lu-u ZAL.LU Lishanusha Lu-u Tabtu
          Sha iqbu-u amat limutti-ia kima ZAL.LU litta-tuk

          Kal amatusha malla-a sseri
          Ina qibit iqbu-u ilani mushitum

          But I hear Dr. Cthulhu is down with marijuana, too.

          • Huevos Ocupados

            I like his stance on mass-ssarati but that amatusha stuff scares the hell out of me.

      Gawd. You guys are like roaches; you're everywhere. Hell, Jim Jones, himself, couldn't inspire this level of fervor, though, we'll all celebrate when you get orders from the Paulian mothership to take that route…

    • Huevos Ocupados

      Are you sure? The Republicans have several other perfectly acceptable crazy racist candidates who would love to destroy the government.

      Wrong windmill, dude. This crowd is perfectly happy having none of us elected. Hell, I don't think any of us are running, anyway. A fast walk, maybe.

      I realize I shouldn't ridicule you followers of the One True Hobbit, so I'll give you a quick clue, probably the first in your life: We are happy with NONE of the current crop of GOP candidates winning anything. Your misdirected zeal might explain why the "And Ron Paul stayed flat" meme just won't go away. Try your schtick on a site that might actually support Grandpa Catterpillerbrows or one of the other members of the GOP Comedy Tour.

    What a rugged individualist! By the way, if you aren’t comfortable being in the midst of a chaotic mob out to get you in the name of self interest then you might want to rethink the whole Libertarian thing, Dr Asshat.

    I heard on NPR this morning that the crowd of people, other than the press, was actually made up of a busload of high school students from Massachusetts that a teacher brought in as a class trip.

    So, Paul goes to a crowded campaign event to be met by reporters and a whole bunch of people not able to vote in the primary.

    • DahBoner

      I thought Paul was running to be President of America, not president of whiny cry babies???

    Mmmmm , I love libertarian cougar trannies. 40 gold pieces for 1 hour GFE!

  • owhatever

    Ron Paul peered through the mob of mediameat and actually saw the guy with the megaphone, relieved to find someone who thought as he did.
