From Captain's Quarters:
Every time we suggested dropping Ron Paul from the national debates, his supporters would go nuts. They claimed in the one instance where he did get dropped, the January 3rd debate just before Iowa, that a grand conspiracy existed to keep his message from the people and to stop the 4% revolution. They demanded boycotts of Fox and of the Iowa GOP. Paul himself complained bitterly about his exclusion, and not without some justification.
Now that Paul's focus has returned to his own Congressional race, he seems much less enthusiastic about debates. After declining to hold a debate with his primary challenger, Chris Peden, Paul got asked yesterday about this seeming hypocrisy at a town-hall meeting in his district. Check out Paul's predictably hysterical response:
Like I said before, I do not endorse Chris Peden, a candidate who might actually be competent at pushing through the GOP Agenda. However, a loss for Ron Paul would be highly amusing. The Paultards campaigned for months and months on a platform of "change." Well, be careful what you wish for.
