I have never read a more sissy, smug, snarky, brazen, self-righteous, weasely, fringey, school-yard-tactics press release in my life like the one released today from Ron Paul's Paulistinians (aka Ron's Robots or The Lords Of The Fly). The senior Paul campaign source is responding to Newt's defense of The Donald's up-and-coming debate--a debate that Ron Paul called a "circus." Here's Newt's presser after meeting with The Donald today:
I don't need to say anything more because the Paul press release speaks for itself [HT: Politico]:
"We agree, of course, with former Speaker Gingrich — this is a country of people of enormous talent. Those who deliver thousands of babies like Dr. Paul and those who spend their time focusing on promoting themselves for profit. We even have those who lobby, but don't call it such because, as they say, they can make $60,000 per speech. While those of us in the Paul camp might disagree with Newt Gingrich about whether Donald Trump is the right man to host a serious political debate, we do agree New York is a wonderful place to go at Christmas. We are sure two average Americans like Speaker Gingrich and Donald Trump will have a wonderful time picking out gifts for their wives. We suggest a place called Tiffany's, we her it is quite nice this time of year and given their celebrity status they can probably get special deals and $500,000 lines of credit."
Presidential material: Thy name is not Ron Paul or his tin foil hat wearing parakeets. "Pretty bird. End the Fed."
