I used to be adjective happy. Now I cut them with so much severity that I find I have to put a few adjectives back.

Ron Paul's Third Party Run

 

Who said this?

"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."
Here are your choices:
  1. New York Occupied
  2. Nancy Pelosi
  3. The Ron Paul Campaign
This is why I increasingly think that Ron Paul will run third party. He's never disavowed running third party, and when you're running for the Republican nomination and you sound like the Occupoop movement, you're using the wrong platform to promote your views.

Me, I tend to think that there's nothing wrong with people who have lots of money. I'm certainly not going to poke at people for being successful. When a Republican does that, it's a bit scary.

Plus, Ron Paul has said that he thinks Occupied is a "very healthy movement." The hell it is. It's about as anti-capitalism as it gets, and Ron Paul certainly shows some anti-capitalist tendencies.

I agree with some of what Paul says, but I vehemently disagree with some of what he says as well.

Given the strength of his own healthy movement, and given his distaste for Gingrich - who looks increasingly like the nominee to me - I'd say odds are good that Ron Paul runs third party. And if so, I think that's Obama's worst nightmare because I think Paul will attract far more disaffected Democrats than Republicans as a third party candidate.

He just might be Obama's Ross Perot.
