After last night's GOP debate, it didn't take long for pundits to pounce on Ron Paul's foreign policy, among other things 'Crazy Uncole Ron' believes in.
Michelle Bachmann, who has practically been meaningless for the past few or so months, came out hard on Paul lastnight, grilling him on the whole question of Iran posessing nukes.
Among other asshats, Brett Baier continued to drill Paul on this very question as if he was going to get a different answer the 5th time he asked.
Shit finally hit the fan for me this morning taking the train into the city. After grabbing a copy of the Post, I get 5 pages in and I'm already reading a column about the debate. I grovel over the same bullshit that has been said about Romney/Gingrich for the past few months and get to the meat: What shit they are going to fling at Ron Paul this time. And it read like this:
"Along the way, Bachmann challenged Ron Paul's astonishingly generous view of Iran's interest in nuclear weapons -- "They're surrounded," he said almost sorrowfully -- and in so doing had the libertarian favorite go into an isolationist rant that surely harmed him in Iowa."
So let me get this straight.
After 10 years of pointless war and thousands of American deaths, the thought that we should avoid another war is ISOLATIONIST? The thought that we should avoid bombing another country who is absolutely no threat to us is CRAZY? And now Iowa pollers are going to shy away from Paul because of this?
Everytime I hear some fuckstick talk about how Ron Paul is an Isolationist, I cringe. You'd think that America would have learned from it's recent history that policing the world and nationbuilding has done nothing but demonize us in the eyes of many, while a few profit off the wars for their own benefit.
You'd think these asshats in the media would get down off their pedastal and for GOD SAKES take sides with Ron Paul on at least this ONE important topic.
Look, I'm no Ron Paul freak. I don't walk the streets at night with a Ron Paul sign throwing snowballs at Neocons. Hell, I don't even know if I'm going to vote for him. However what the media is doing to his ideas is blasphemy. I feel as if our own media is going to eventually push us into another war that our children are going to have to fight, once again. And for what?
It's time to once and for all call these pundits out on their weak minded shit flinging.
