I take it back, the Paultards are crazier.

HAHAHAHA, Ronnie P. draws out the best of the parannoyings out there.

Internal Paultard Chaos Erupts Over Possible Astronaut Endorsement

Wonkette by Jim Newell on 1/23/08

In one of the better recent threads at Ron Paul Forums yesterday, someone floated the idea of courting Neil Armstrong’s support based on a blurb from the famous astronaut’s Wikipedia page: “The first man to walk on the Moon was also approached by political parties from both ends of the spectrum. Unlike former astronauts and United States Senators John Glenn and Harrison Schmitt, Armstrong has turned down all offers.” Later in the thread however, Armstrong’s ties with the CORPORATES are revealed — he’s a Freemason and a Skull & Bonesman, it seems, and therefore made up the moon landing!

One Paultard isn’t so concerned about the evil Freemason ties, because Neil Armstrong is something of a demi-god on our earth. Come to think of it, maybe he is the one God.

that works for everyone. Neil Armstrong is clean and admirable. Except for the career which was a total lie!:

I mean, can you believe this big city fairy prances around all innocent-like — given his history of LIES?:

Nail in the coffin: Lying hoaxmaster Freemason Bonesman corporate fake astronaut fairy Neil Armstrong shall have no court with Ron Paul:

Paul supporters 'freak out' town clerk
Vote-counting flub draws ire, threats

Jennifer Call's eyes searched the office for nothing in particular. Her arms waved and her fear spilled out.

"This is where I grew up," Sutton's town clerk said yesterday. "This is my hometown, this is where my family is, and all of sudden, my name is being splashed across the internet as this horrible person. And the frightening part is, I don't know these people and they don't know me."

Call wants the nationwide army of boisterous Ron Paul supporters, believers in more conspiracy theories than Oliver Stone, to know that she's committed no crime.

Not treason, as the dozens of phone callers screamed. Not fraud, as the dozens of e-mails charged. Nothing.

Human error, by someone unknown, caused Call's office to claim Paul received zero votes from the town during Tuesday's first-in-the-nation primary.

Paul actually got a whopping 31 votes.

Out of 920 cast.

Launch an investigation. Alert the media.

The mistake was corrected early the next morning, but that hardly mattered. The Paul machine, upon reading the number in print, quickly went into counteroffensive mode.

This is luck at its worst. Screw up Rudy Giuliani's vote total. Or John McCain's. Or John Edwards's. Or Bill Richardson's.

But never, ever get anything wrong when it comes to Paul and his voting tally. If you do, fans who shouted from the rooftops through the primary season will track you down and chew you out.

"Most of the these people are not rational," Call said.

Call, 35, arrived at the Pillsbury Memorial Hall Tuesday morning at 7 for the start of a marathon day. About a dozen or so staffers coordinated the effort, guiding voters, counting votes, rechecking totals.

Paul's 31 votes got lost in the shuffle, lost in translation between moderator Greg Hill's voice and Call's pen.

The slot next to Paul's name on the original return sheet said 31, but a space on Call's return, next to Paul's name, remained blank.

"He's (Gill) reading off his results, I'm writing them down on the return," Call said. "I don't know why it was blank. I don't know if he skipped over it or if someone interrupted him to repeat the last name and it got skipped, or maybe I missed it. It was that simple."

No it wasn't.

Call was met by town officials the next morning at 9:30. They told her the mistake had been rectified. Call, her jacket still on, was confused.

"What are you talking about?" she asked.

She was told someone had come in and said he'd voted for Paul. The voter noticed the "0" in the local newspaper and wanted an explanation. When he got it, he left, satisfied.

Call phoned the Secretary of State's office and re-faxed the form, the one with a circled "31" next to Paul's name. Just to make sure.

Then it hit, like one of those snowstorms last month. Call got a call from someone named Bob. No last name. She remembers the man identifying himself as a reporter for the Associated Press, looking for the story on voter fraud.

She said she'd fetch the details, then call him back, thinking the media would need a strict timeline and every tidbit available.

"I'm thinking he's legitimate," Call said. "I call Bob back and it's a fax machine. I called AP and asked for Bob. They told me a reporter would have given a last name."

Others in the office received calls and e-mails. But Call was the name out front, the town clerk as well as the tax collector. She was labeled the brains behind the plot. She had the biggest target on her back.

The assault picked up after lunch. Paul supporters phoning Call claimed to be from the media. Others just yelled, saying she had committed treason, fraud. One person said she should be shot. She received as many as 40 calls that day.

"One person said he was on a nationally syndicated radio station," Call said, "and he has given out my phone number and they need to call the town of Sutton to find out why there's voter fraud."

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."

It's calmer now. The calls and e-mails had stopped as of yesterday afternoon. Call had the day off, but she went into her office to retrieve some paperwork.

She's hurt and nervous, but she's got a job.

"I've got a school board meeting Saturday," Call said. "I've got to be ready."

Paultards Consider Acting Like Human Beings, a.k.a. 'Sheep'

via Wonkette

OK, we’ve only got one screen shot of hilarious Ron Paul Forums strategy this time, but it’s v. v. special indeed! Check out this first part: “So what do sheep do? Follow? Go with the majority? Go with the flow? Follow the trend?” Yes, yes, whatever, all of that, please explain further!

It appears the “sheep,” as the kids are calling real human beings today, might respond better to “actual language”:


Indeed, maybe if we all try a little harder, we can write real sentences too — the “sheep” won’t know what hit ‘em!

LISTS 2007! Let's Do This!

The Academy released their list today so it must be that time...

Time for LISTS!

The Best Films of 2007 (out of what my eyes saw):

1. Into the Wild - The road movie is the greatest genre ever made. Christopher McCandless was polarizing in life and death, so it was fitting that the film would garner the same kind of reviews. However the nerve it touches is testament to the power of this story. Told beautifully and personally, Into the Wild, brings us as close as we probably ever can come to the complexities of someone's heart and soul in a bio-film. Painful and hopeful, realistic and idealistic, seductive and devastating, this film is a gripping masterpiece of contradictions. And Eddie Vedder's gorgeous soundtrack is a close second.

2. There Will Be Blood
3. Margot at the Wedding
4. No Country for Old Men
5. The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
6. Once
7. Atonement
8. Juno
9. No End in Sight
10. The Darjeeling Limited
11. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
12. Michael Clayton
13. Sweeney Todd
14. For the Bible Tells Me So
15. Eastern Promises
16. Zodiac
17. 3:10 to Yuma
18. Hot Fuzz
19. The Orphanage
20. Knocked Up
HM: The Devil Came on Horseback,
Superbad & The Host

Worst Movie: Smokin' Aces - The only good thing about this movie is that Ben Affleck dies in the first 20 minutes.

UPDATE: Now having seen Persepolis, a '07 entry that just made it to town, I have to sing its praise and call it a top 5 pick for sure. It's up for the Academy Award for best animated film and it sure as hell better win. Phenomenal.

The Best Albums of 2007 (out of what my ears heard):

1. Radiohead - In Rainbows - In Rainbows is a sort-of "acceptance" record; a letting go if you will; their own sort of gorgeous meditation on an Ecclesiastical view of relationships. The anxious-about-the-apocalypse band is comfortable in their own skin. Easily the most important band making music today.

2. Steven Delopoulos - Straightjacket
3. Bright Eyes - Cassadega
4. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
5. Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
6. Eddie Vedder - Into the Wild
7. Derek Webb - The Ringing Bell
8. The National - Boxer
9. Patty Griffin - Children Running Through
10. Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
11. Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
12. Josh Ritter - The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
13. Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
14. Feist - The Reminder
15. The White Stripes - Icky Thump
16. Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger
17. Björk - Volta
18. Iron & Wine - The Shepard's Dog
19. Over the Rhine - The Trumpet Child
20. Menomena - Friend or Foe
HM: Sara Groves - Tell Me What You Know & Andrew Bird - Airmchair Apocrypha

Worst Record: 2007, take your pick. It would be easy to say Nickleback, but I'm gonna go with Daughtry.
