Two sentences into the article,

and Michael Bonanno's shit-stupidness is already apparent.

Last night, I happened upon a 1959 Mike Wallace interview. In this interview, Wallace was speaking to Ayn Rand, the goddess of today’s Libertarian Party[1], the party that Ron Paul would belong to if he had any courage[2]. But Paul has no courage.

Um, no.

[1.] If Libertarians WERE Objectivists, they wouldn't believe in goddesses. And The Libertarian Party is a political entity, not a philosophical one such as Ayn Rand's Objectivist movement. There are PLENTY of Libertarians who are rather disdainful of Ayn Rand, some even that have never heard of her. Ayn Rand herself dismissed Libertarians as "the hippies of the right." Libertarians don't strike me as the masochistic type, so I doubt they would elevate ANYONE who verbally degraded them to the level of "goddess."

[2.] Once upon a time, there was a little thing called 1988. Perhaps you've heard about it, but it's readily apparent this dumbass hasn't. Bonanno should read about it sometime. If he does, he will discover that Ron Paul was the Libertarian Party Presidential candidate. For all the good it did him. It takes more courage to stick it out in the trenches and fight to save a party riddled with corruption than it does to stand outside that party and gripe about it's corruption. He TRIED the reform-from-outside route; it didn't work. Now he's trying the reform-from-inside.

For the offense of sheer shit-stupidness, Bonanno is the first nominee for the October 2007 Douchebag of the Month Award.

I have to respectfully dissent from #2, since Paul's website makes no mention of 1988. Nor of the word "libertarian" generally.

If he's ashamed of his big-L Libertarian past, then why shouldn't it be equally ashamed of him?

Perhaps Dr. Paul realizes the vast majority of potential voters for the 2008 elections are old enough to remember 1988, and those that aren't are certainly technologically savvy enough to use Google and Wikipedia. :)

BUT seriously, folks . . .

It would be kind of prickish to accept the monetary and logistical help of one party, then use the campaign to promote a DIFFERENT party, especially during primary season, now wouldn't it?

Not to mention torpedoing any chance of getting elected as a Republican again in the next Congressional election in his district, on the very small chance that he is not the next President of the United States.

He's already President of YouTube; can POTUS be far behind?
