Ron Paul is lecturing the Republicans again, but this time it’s just hilarious. His point? That Republicans should avoid cozying up to “tea party” protesters because doing so might align them with wackos:
Paul is a favorite among the tea party crowd, but the former Republican presidential candidate suggested that the GOP should be wary of aligning themselves too closely to protesters who can be unpredictable in their actions and messaging.
The cluelessness of Paul’s criticism is mind-boggling. His own political prominence has been built on his willing association with fringe groups that are anything but “on message” — crowds of unkempt and costumed characters who endlessly spammed internet sites whenever Paul’s name was even mentioned and who personally and physically intimidated voters at caucuses all across the country with their bizarre behavior.
