Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) is well known to be Capitol Hill's voice of measured reason and old-fashioned morality, at least on days when Joe Lieberman is out bloviating for Sarah Palin.
Well this week, Dr. Paul cast his gaze of reason and morality across this great land and came to the same conclusion that the Ku Klux Klan did in 2003: California must elect State Rep. Tom McClintock to higher office…
Paul, the libertarian-Republican congressman from Texas who raised more than $34 million for his presidential race, sent out an e-mail last week urging his massive donor base to contribute to McClintock.
"Tom McClintock is one of the most promising warriors in the fight against big government we have seen in a long time, and the special interests and big bankers know it. … You have stood with me as….
…I campaigned for the Presidency to return our federal government to its proper role. Will you help me bring a reliable ally to Congress?"
Beyond the Klan's endorsement, Paul must have admired McClintock's one-man foiling of a Chinese plot to steal oil off the coast of Florida — a region that is roughly the same distance from McClintock's home as the district he's running in.
With a resume like McClintock's, you have to wonder how Paul picked him over equally reasonable, moral candidates like, say, Ted Stevens.
(By the way, just to give Ron Paul supporters a head start on the comments section, let me just point out that I am a pathetic, ignorant scum of the earth who deserves nothing short of deportation and a slow, painful death.)
