A triple auto-“knee-capping” last night

Email Print

Last night, three of the candidates performed a knee-capping on their own selves. Perhaps it happened so fast many didn’t notice but thank goodness for transcripts and video.

If you want to be president, should you insult a man who is revered by the libertarian swing vote which constitutes about ten percent of voters?

If your name is Giuliani, Romney or McCain, the answer is yes.

Let’s see now. Romney made the crack about how Ron Paul acts like an agent for a foreign government. Nice Mitt. Think about that remark when you’re not in the White House for the rest of your life.

Then, Rudy did his cackling hyena routine. Here’s a sample from another debate.

Finally, McCain, in what was obviously a prepared hit, suggested that Ron Paul’s policy is to trade with a terrorist group. Dr. Paul responded by pointing out that McCain’s policy is to arm that terrorist group’ recent allies! Senator, fire whomever came up with that stinkeroo.

To his credit, Huckabee treated Ron Paul with respect as did Fred Thompson to the best of my recollection.
