Nebraska GOP 33, Ron Paul 2

Email Print

Phew! By denying Ron Paul a majority of the 35 delegates at its state convention, the Nebraska Republican party saved itself, and the rest of the national GOP, the embarrassment not only of having Ron speak at the national convention, but of having his name placed in nomination. 90% of the party constituents, and 100% of its establishment hierarchy, will now be saved the pain of listening to ideas that express philosophic principles that were once popular among the GOPers. Wars, police-state practices, torture, presidentially-decreed assassinations, imprisonment without trial, censorship, etc., represent the “new world order” that will bring conservatives to their feet. No more will these people have to suffer the indignity of having to listen to Ron suggest that the peaceful thinking of Jesus should govern American foreign policy! (“Ain’t that treasonous, Ralph?” “Well, it’s at least blasphemous, Martha!”)

I am curious about how the GOP management will fill the 15 minutes of time that Ron might otherwise have had to speak to the world. Perhaps they can get John McCain and Mitt Romney to provide us with a James Cagney toe-tapper, as they sing and dance to McCain’s 2008 hit “Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran!”
