Ron Paul Endorses Paul Broun

Ron Paul has endorsed one of the looniest men in Congress, Rep. Paul Broun, in his race to replace Saxby Chambliss in the Senate from Georgia. And of course, he says it’s all about restoring the Constitution, something Broun wouldn’t recognize if it smacked him in the face.

“If we’re going to restore our Constitution and put our nation back on the path to prosperity, we must elect principled conservatives who will fight in Washington,” Paul, a former presidential candidate with deep tea party support, said in an email Thursday. “Paul Broun will continue fighting, and that’s why I endorsed his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Georgia.”

Just for fun, let’s take a look at some of the crazy and stupid things Broun has said on a regular basis. This is the guy who said that evolution and the big bang are “lies straight from the pit of hell” (and this guy is on the House Science Committee). He voted for nutcase Allen West to be speaker of the house after he was defeated in the last election. He claimed that “the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one.”

In his first fundraising letter in the Senate race, he said that he was “the first Member of Congress to call him a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies like government control of health care and redistribution of wealth.” I said at the time that this made him the first hipster wingnut: “I was saying batshit crazy things about Obama before it was cool.” Oh, and he said that the health care reform bill should not pay for sex-change operations because, “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.” Well good for you.

Ron Paul just endorsed this guy.

    “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.”

    Best response I ever saw to that one was, “So you’re also opposed to coverage of gynecological and obstetric services?”

    Once again, it looks like Ron Paul is rubbing his own supporters’ faces in the total phoniness of his entire career. If he’s really trying to say “See? My harshest critics were right about me from day one!” then he couldn’t have said it more clearly than this.

    Are retirement and senility combining to make him honest?

    the Constitution, something Broun wouldn’t recognize if it smacked him in the face.

    I’d be happy to commission a copy of the Constitution, written on marble, if I could smack both Ron Paul and Paul Broun in the face with it.

    Given the attitudes held by many fringe Republicans, the answer would probably be “Yes”.

    That’s why it’s such a good line.

    Meanwhile, offspring Rand Paul has endorsed Mark ‘Appalachian Trail’ Sanford.

    Broun has a medical degree from the University of Georgia, an institution he has later dismissed as a “liberal bastion that should be eliminated, save for the football team.”

    Hate to break the news to you aaronpound @4, but the “fringe republicans” are the few who don’t abhor equal rights for women.

    Your source has it wrong. According to his own website, he has an undergrad degree from UGA, but his M.D. is from the Medical College of Georgia, an institution whose administration undoubtedly cringes every time he opens his mouth.

    Broun also claimed that embryology was from the pit of hell, though I never understood why. Unless it’s because that’s what PZ does.

    You gotta give the guy credit for originality!

    Paul Broun has a medical degree?? From what century?

    Broun also claimed that embryology was from the pit of hell, though I never understood why.

    He equates wombs with the Pit of Hell?

    “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.”

    Well you have to give him credit for the honesty of admitting he’s not an adult.

    “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.”

    For some reason I always picture this line being delivered in a campy musical.

    Strangely enough, it’s actually the existence of Hell that’s a lie straight from the pit of Hell.

    If he was truly claiming a medical degree from the University of Georgia that would explain a lot-as the Unviersity of Georgia does not have a medical school. However, as noted he went to the Medical College of Georgia which is a real medical school. How he managed to graduate, not believing in EMBRYOLOGY for crying out loud, is another story.

    it’s actually the existence of Hell that’s a lie straight from the pit of Hell.

    Or maybe the “pit of the Big Bang and embryology.”

    @10:

    The Pauls aspire to rise to the level of “scumbag”; their current status is considerably less than that.

    I would wonder where either of those pieces-of-shit find supporters if I didn’t have a friend who is STILL convinced that Ron Paul has the “Right” ideas.

    I think he included embryology as part of the rant because because we godless liberals use it to support abortion rights. Odd, considering that if they’ll use any recorded fetal twitch as evidence that every fucking brat-in-development is a BAY-BE who must be allowed to come to term no matter what.

    One nut endorsing another nut. Big surprise.
