Everybody has been saying, according to everybody, that the reason that crazy old Ron Paul has been so cozy and gentle with the Mittster even though he is supposedly his opponent in a GOP presidential race that has already been decided and thus had great incentive to go all Newt on his ass is that he wanted his every crazier son Rand to have a seat at the table when the GOP takes control of the nation and everybody is free again, free at last, thank the lord.
Something like that, anyway.
Everybody is not as smart as everybody thinks, of course, but let’s not go there, because the big story today is that young Rand has tossed his support, such as it is, to the Other Guy. There is great renting of garments and gnashing of teeth among Paultards across the nation. Their outrage on the internets is hilarious, as you might expect, but the most hilariously hilarious comment of all is the one below (taken, with gratitude, from Wonkette) which sees sonny boy as the hapless victim of somebody or other:
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.
All caps is always the first clue.
