Where they differ is that Wright hates Jews and whites. Paul hates Jews and blacks. Oh, right. Paul only hates Israel, and gives Iran and other jihadis who wish to exterminate the Jews a pass. This alone should mark Paul as too extreme to be running as a Republican. But, I’m sure that, as the formulation goes, “some of his best friends are Jews…”
As for Paul’s views on America’s role in the world, Rich Lowry examines Paul’s blame America first world view. Well, Paul is an isolationist in the best Patrick Buchanan mold: we’re in the Middle East because world Jewry’s vast conspiracy has dictated it. What Pitchfork Pat used to call the Israel “Amen Corner” in Congress.
What’s really sad about the Paultards is that they simply don’t seem to care that their man is nuttier than a Christmas fruitcake. For every good idea, and he’s got quite a few, there are “I can’t believe that any sane man can believe that crap” ideas.
That Paul might actually win the un-representative Iowa caucuses says nothing about the Republican Party, and a lot about caucus-goers in Iowa. As Rich Lowry concludes,
Iowa caucus-goers are protective of their pre-eminent place in the nominating process. If they deliver victory to a history-making Ron Paul, no one should take them as seriously again.
Ron Paul may “win” Iowa. But that means little for nominating an actual Republican. Let’s hope that Dr. Paul retains enough sanity to not mount a third-party run, unless of course he and his Paultards actually believe that another four years of Obama would be better for the nation than a President Romney (or fill in the name of any other Republican candidate except Ron Paul).
