Rand Paul would NOT support 3rd Party Ron Paul Run
Thank goodness Rand Paul is more sane than his crazed father, Ron Paul:
“If the TeaParty branches off, it’ll be a certain election for President Obama.”
He continues to cite the Perot third party failure in 1992 where he received 19% of the vote, but no electoral college votes, and is credited by many for ushering the age of Clinton.

This isn’t terribly surprising, as many people noted that he didn’t seem terribly excited as he heard his Dad’s victory speech at the Iowa Caucus, where he took third behind a near tie between Santorum and Miss Mittens.
As flags wave and supporters clap, Rand seems pensive when his crazy daddy says Americans are against the Afghanistan war. Hmm.
Ron Paul had been dogged by claims that newsletters bearing his name also contained racist and anti-Semitic statements. It doesn’t help when he appears to be heiled by David Fischer, co-chairman of Paul’s campaign in Iowa. Ron makes sure to heil back:
I’M JUST KIDDING YOU, PAULESTINIANS! I’m sure it was an accidental homage to Hitler, who similarly supported the eradication of Jews from the face of the Earth.
And for those of you who think the Ron Paulestinians ran out of dirty tricks… check this out:
DES MOINES — Ron Paul may have officially come in third tonight, but if the campaign’s caucus strategy went off as planned, then Paul may actually be the real winner of the first Republican voting contest.
That’s because Paul’s massive organizational push in Iowa focused on both winning votes, and also on making sure that Paul supporters stuck around after the vote to make sure they were selected as county delegates — the first step towards being elected as a delegate to the Republican National Convention.
That’s because Iowa’s Republican caucuses are non-binding — they are technically just a straw poll, so once selected, delegates are free to vote for whichever presidential candidate they choose.
“Part of what we’ve been training the Ron Paul people to do is not to leave after the vote,” Dan Godzich, a senior campaign advisor, told BI. “Stay and get elected to the conventions and get us those delegates.”
Godzich and Sydney Hay, another Paul advisor, crisscrossed Iowa in the weeks leading up to the caucuses, making sure precinct leaders knew what to do and organizing slates of delegates that would ensure Paul walked away with a strong majority, even if he lost the caucus’ straw poll vote.
By the eve of Election Day, Hay said she was confident that Paul would come away from Iowa with a strong majority of the state’s delegates. It’s a good first step toward making sure that Paul has a strong presence on the floor in Tampa this summer — something that his supporters believe will help force the Republican party to start reckoning with their Movement.
UPDATE: 1:40 a.m.
Sources close to the Paul campaign indicated Tuesday that they were happy with their delegate count. Although we couldn’t get specific numbers, a source told Business Insider that Paul nailed down the delegates in all of Iowa’s smaller counties, and made a strong showing in several larger ones.
This was posted at the Business Insider Daily, but has since been taken down. Hmmm indeed. Luckily, it was captured by a blogger at CafeMom.

DEMOCRAT PAULESTINIAN TRAINING VIDEO!
@flipside from sent me this via twitter – apparently it was posted to his Facebook account. It’s a training video to instruct Democrats and Independents on how to abuse the democratic system in order to impose their agenda on the rest of us. Because the only way to get back to the constitution, is to defraud the voting system and seize control through an electoral coup’d’etat. Makes sense.
unfortunately the video has been removed.
