Commenter Captain Howdy sent in a gem of a blog post from a Republican candidate for Congress who is incensed that “Ron Paul Libertarians” have taken over her local nominating convention and won’t allow prayers or the Pledge of Allegiance. Here’s a taste:
When I then mentioned that Chris Fields had been advocating, to our Republican college youth, the legalization of pot smoking, this brought loud, lengthy cheering and clapping, and then the announcement that my time was up. I mentioned that President and General George Washington did not advocate pot smoking and that if he did, we probably would not have won the American Revolutionary War.
This is what is going on in your Republican Party folks.
The whole thing is worth a read, if not for the part about the clown in a flag suit, then for the obligatory Nazi reference.
