"begone insubstantial coward"

Paultards Traumatized By Rand Paul’s Romney Endorsement

FREE 2 BE ME

Well, tragedy has struck in Ron Paul’s kingdom. Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney Thursday night on Sean Hannity’s show, presumably because he has been promised some high-profile position in Mitt’s Barbie and Ken’s Dream House™ cabinet. While those pioneering philosophers over at the Washington Post seriously ponder “what” Rand Paul’s endorsement “means” (absolute f#*&-all), other, better people have begun to tentatively trawl The Daily Paul for some commenter takes on what it means for Ron Paul’s supporters. The Atlantic Wire’s exceedingly polite collection: “Rand Paul is dead to me,” “All he had to do was not open his mouth,” and “We will never vote for Mitt Romney or your flimsy son.” We can and will do better than this.

So, here we go:

would ron paul being the vp help.????? they have little power and no influence over policy unless… uh romney were to die.

Rand is a war monger and a neo con. He has betrayed us all.

Romney created a job!!! the one Rand just gave Hannity…of the Blow type…probably created a B job for rand in that 30 minute meeting too.

It’s one thing to criticize political candidates, but another to claim apocalypse without the slighest suggestion of a solution: begone, insubstantial coward!

DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU THAT THE ESTABLISHMENT COULD BE USING RON PAUL’S SUPPORTERS TO DESTROY RAND PAUL’S CAREER? LOOK AT RAND’S FACE IN THIS SO-CALLED “ENDORSEMENT”. HE DOESN’T LOOK HAPPY ABOUT IT TO ME. I’D BET MONEY THEY’VE BEEN THREATENED AND ARE USING THIS ENDORSEMENT TO RUIN RAND’S CAREER.

There’s no indication that Dr. Ron did anything wrong here; if anything he likely supported his son’s right to be free.

The only way I’d support Romney is if he did the right thing and backed down to make way for President Ron Paul. There’s NO other way.

I’ve officially stopped following the “race”…as I now know, your votes count for nothing…it’s all about who licks and kisses the hand of power and Rand has tasted the nectar early and often and cannot help himself…his carnal mind has taken over.

Shove it up your ass, Rand.

Let’s shove Mitt up Rand’s ass, problem solved.

    Terrific! Now I just need to know who Dan Quayle and Perez Hilton will be endorsing and my life will be complete.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      But what does Sarah Palin think about this? I MUST know.

      Betcha Obama put Rand up to this.

      • Barb

        Sarah Palin doesn't think.

        • Butch_Wagstaff

          I was just hopin' for a new helpin' of word salad with Palin dressing, that's all.

      Did Mitt baptize Aqua Buddha yet?

      Aqua Buddha would have to be dead first.

      Though I asked the Mormons that came by to pester me the other day if they have gotten to bin Laden yet and they finally seem to have left me alone.

      I think it would be a bit late to douse water upon the aqua Buddha, even posthumously.

    Yes, anonymous vitriol and sore loser spirit will cause a delegate reversal and declare Ron the winner… but only if they don't upgrade Romney's firmware before the convention.

    LOOK AT RAND’S FACE IN THIS SO-CALLED “ENDORSEMENT”. HE DOESN’T LOOK HAPPY ABOUT IT TO ME.

    I can only accurately judge Rand Paul's happiness by if he's showing sideboob or not.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Suddenly I have a picture in my head of Judy Jetson showing side boob, and my Friday has become a little better.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    So, the Bilderbergs meet, and the next week Rand Paul is forced onto Hannity to "endorse" Mitt Romney.

    Now I'm imagining Mitt flapping his arms and struggling for breath with his head rammed up Rand Paul's ass. And Rand running down the street trying to get away, with the rest of Mitt trailing behind him like the best dressed dingleberry in the history of BYU.

    No snark, I'm at work with lots of work to do still, and I'm too lazy to look for backup linkies to support my point, but any RonPaultard who actually went back and looked at old Rand Paul news stories would know that the son of Paul is no fucking libertarian at all, but a good old, mainline big business Republican ho who always comes down on the side of the Republican insiders when it comes time to vote. Once daddyPaul kicks the bucket, Paultards are gonna be shit outta luck.

  • SayItWithWookies

    So Ron Paul's followers — who endorse a philosophy of the supremacy of self-interest — are all aghast that Krugerrand Paul has acted in a way that they deem self-interested? It speaks to the failure of this adolescent worldview — which can pretty much be written out on a notecard — that its adherents don't understand how it works.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Well that's sort of the problem with ideology generally, isn't it? Absolute purity is almost always in conflict with realistic behavior. Which is why ideological zealots are always happiest when the world goes to hell and they can stand by the sideline and scream about how it is all everyone else's fault for not being pure enough.

  • Antispandex

    OK, that first one is a little scarey, considering who we're dealing with here. " …unless… uh romney were to die." Are you kidding me? Time for Mitt to head for the door…or maybe the guy has a legitmate point. Who are we to judge?

    What a sight, ladies and gentlemen. What a sight. The Paultard Blimp seems to circling the Wal de mort parking area now. I guess it's looking for a place to land. No! Something just came out of the back of the blimp. It's a dark object, perhaps a turkey plummeting to the earth from only two thousand feet in the air… There's a third… No parachutes yet… Those can't be turkeys. I can't tell just yet what they are but… Oh my God! They're Paultards! Oh no! Johnny can you get this? Oh, they're crashing to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! This is terrible! Everyone's running around pushing each other. Oh my goodness! Oh, the… um… humanity?!?!! People are running about. The Paultards are hitting the ground like sacks of blubber! Folks, I don't know how much longer… The crowd is running for their lives. I think I'm going to step inside. I can't stand here and watch this anymore. No, I can't go in there. Children are searching for their mothers and oh, not since the Paultard 2nd Life Farce has there been anything like this. I don't know how much longer I can hold my position here, Johnny. The crowd…

    Apparently, Rand Paul endorsing Mitt is part of Ron Paul's Master Plan because psychology.

    • Arken

      Oh dear lord, this one's even better:

      "I think one of the reasons Ron Paul really talks about energy is because he KNOWS there are other free energy technologies the global elite have supressed, but here you have Rand agreeing with neo-con Hannity about wanting more fracking. It's almost as if Hannity was trying to piss us Ron Paul supporters off with even bringing up fracking because he probably knows its bad for water supplys. Im going out on a limb there, but Ron Paul knows what the hell is going on, his energy policy is ultimately to bring free and SAFE energy into the world, not supress it. His son apparently wants to destroy the world with this endles fracking. IGNORANCE!"

      Ron Paul KNOWS there are perpetual motion machines! HE KNOWS!!!

      • Wile E. Quixote

        Thank you. I get so fucking tired of hearing about 11 dimensional chess. It's such bullshit because whenever it's trotted out it's usually because President Obama has done something stupid and the Obots are trying to justify it instead of up and saying "Damn. Looks like he fucked that one up." It's also bullshit because let's face it, you don't have to play 11 dimensional chess to outwit the Republicans, you don't even have to play regular two dimensional chess, checkers will work nicely as long as you can keep them from overturning the board and having a tantrum (their legislative strategy since 2008) or eating the checkers or shoving them up their noses.

    I have a high school friend who is a big-time Paul follower, and often see her cult-like RP rantings on facebook. The other day, she and others were basically asking each other what to think about this development and what other things Mitt would need to do to get their support. One of them was making "Judge" Andrew Napolitano the AG or putting him on the Supreme Court.

    Then she was actually asking people (mind you, this was on Austin Petersen from Freedomworks' status) what position she was supposed to have on one particular issue (abortion, I think it was).

    Ironic how those claiming they want liberty and the freedom to choose what they want in every area of life need to ask someone else what they are required to believe on an issue.
