Ron Paul Plots New Democracy-Lite Path To Convention Glory

News

American democracy's most persistent old fart Ron Paul has announced that he no longer cares for democracy per se in the traditional sense of trying to "win votes" from "voters," because this is a hard thing to do, when your platform is mostly insane. "We will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted," sayeth Doctor Congressman Paul, who will instead focus henceforth on a cheaper alternative to never not running for president, that of trying to stir up shit at state nominating conventions by pilfering delegates that he will ransom for a speaking spot or some other sexy consolation prize at the RNC convention in Tampa. Video of said shit being stirred, after the jump!


There was bitter Romneyite-on-Paultard violence in Oklahoma at Saturday's state GOP convention when the Paultard plot to stage a parliamentary procedure-based coup of the delegate slate failed and they all went cold nuts:

And here is the report from NewsOK.com for those of you who do not adore the shrill sound of wingnut screams:

Paul supporters, who numbered about 600 and made up about 40 percent of the convention, used various parliamentary procedures to contest rules.

They complained the state party violated its own rules by failing to have a roll-call vote on the slate of national delegates and voted against adjourning the convention.

“Follow the rules!” they chanted.

Many of them met outside the Embassy Suites Hotel after the convention.

Earlier, a Paul supporter complained he had been hit in the back of the head by a Romney backer; Paul supporters got upset when convention officials tried to remove the Paul backer.

Good grief. [The Hill/NewsOK.com]

ProPublica released a recording yesterday of children in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility crying for their parents after being subjected to the tender mercies of the New Cruelty.

The children are distraught, sobbing, inconsolable (not that the Border Patrol agents seem especially interested in consoling them). As ProPublica notes, "They scream 'Mami' and 'Papá' over and over again, as if those are the only words they know." You do not want to listen. But maybe you must.


One Border Patrol agent makes a very amusing joke as he hears all the children crying: "Well, we have an orchestra here [...] What's missing is a conductor."

Can anyone doubt that SS guards made similar jokes as children were unloaded from boxcars?

Mark Sanford is all mopey because he just lost his cushy Congress job after Donald Trump said mean things about him on Twitter. This was not the expected ending of a distinguished career, which involved lying to his constituents as governor about his whereabouts because he was conducting a clandestine affair.
