"Most of the these people are not rational"

Oh, you've just got to love the fruits, nuts, and flakes attracted to one Ronald Ernest Paul:

The voices came from everywhere. California. Ohio. Florida. Michigan. Very few were from New Hampshire.

A man from Texas e-mailed that he was "contacting, by certified mail, the Attorney General of New Hampshire . . . and requesting a complete investigation and prosecution of any and all parties involved."

A police dispatcher in New London said yesterday she'd received inquiries about the clerk's office phone.

Call got a handful of calls that night at home, refusing to pick up whenever an out-of-state number appeared on her screen.

She got about five more the next day in her office. She tried to get work done. She called the Massachusetts company that makes the licenses for dog owners in her area. The guy had heard of her.

"Wow," the man said. "This is the second time this week I've seen your name."

"Where?" Call asked.

"I've gotten a dozen e-mails about how you've destroyed the New Hampshire primary."


"We make voting machines."

"The problem is," Call said yesterday, "we don't use voting machines."

She went home and locked her doors. She called her mother in North Carolina. She cried. The calls kept coming. She unhooked her answering machine and requested an unlisted number.

"I was drained emotionally and physically," Call said. "That's when I really started to freak out. Thursday it hit me, that most of these people are not rational. That's when I became scared."

Jennifer Call is Sutton New Hampshire's town clerk. Her "crime" was to initially post that Ron Paul garnered zero votes out of 920 cast in her town.

He actually got 31.

Out of 920.

For this, irate and unhinged Paul supporters from around the nation have bombarded her office and home phone with cries of fraud and treason, and even a death threat.

Over a human error in transcribing results, an error that was corrected the next morning.

Let it be known far and wide that Ron Paul got a whopping 3.37% of the primary vote in Sutton, New Hampshire.

And leave this poor woman alone.

Ron Paul supporter explaining how this is all jsut a big disinformation plot by Big Government interests who HATE Dr. Paul (and besides, that big-state-power-enabler woman has it coming for being part of the problem), arriving in 3, 2, 1...

No, seriously. The Paulians won't comment on tins at all-- they'll ignore it. Just like they'll ignore or excuse the political-murder-that-almost-was when they attempted to mob Sean Hannity.

Because to acknowledge this sort of thing is to acknowledge that Paulismo is built on a foundation of hysteria and neurosis.

I don't know about the 'hysteria and neurosis' but if anyone indicates they support the nutty Paul I move away fast. I don't mind getting splattered with brains but object to BS when they're heads explode.

Is there any way to liven up this with some dark theories about ChemTrails?

For your readers that live in Texas's 14th Congressional District, Ron Paul has a primary opponent. Chris Peden has entered the Republican primary opposing Paul for Paul's Congressional seat.

The Republican primary decides who goes to Washington next January. Paul has no Democratic challenger in the November general election.

To find out more about Chris Peden or to send him a contribution, check out his website: http:\\
