Neocon Terror

“The Purpose of Terror is to terrorize.” V. I. Lenin

Yes, they are terrorized. After years of treating Ron Paul like those Taliban cadavers, the neocons suddenly realize he could spoil their party, major league, big time. So suddenly they discover that the good doctor is a genial old chap who has bright young followers and — zounds! — some surprisingly attractive ideas! He leads a “cause,” not a “campaign,” of course, because, after all, he can’t win, you know, and, why, good sorts that we are, we’ve kindly let him “put his cause on the map”!

Are we there yet? Good. Now let’s wipe Ron Paul off the map, they chortle, so we can have more wars.

Fat chance, Dr. K.

These guys have been lying for years. They want to give him a convention speech that no network will air and a platform entry that no one will read (Bob Dole bragged in 1996 that he wouldn’t read it. His 2012 clone will too).

Romney’s foreign policy team is Bush 43, The Sequel. Ten years ago Krauthammer sided with them against the “navel gazers” who demanded we follow the Constitution. Now that Obama is giving the Constitution the cadaver treatment, the neocons are all atwitter — “Hey, that’s only fair when we ignore it!”

Krauthammer deigns to baptize Ron Paul’s candidacy as “the biggest story yet of this presidential campaign.” Rest assured, he and his fellow plunderers will do everything they can to make it “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” (Macbeth, Act V, Scene 5)
