    Can you zoom in and get a close-up of Ron Paul piloting that monster?

    Whoa, first-time poster, moderate-time lurker, and I make it onto page one in the first go-round.

    Loaded with a bomb packed with anti-personnel flechettes the Paul-piloted blimp crashed into the Federal Reserve building. Casualty figures are not known at this time.

    I can’t wait until the Ron Paul blimp meets the John McCain Straught Talk Heli-Carrier!

    McCain: My superior assclownery will soon rule the skies!

    Ron Paul: Aryan Nation Heli-Carrier Assualt Squad! Deploy now!

    Does that mirror-image of the word “LOVE” in that slogan have any significance? Like “As a libertarian, I have a twisted, reversed understanding of human emotion”?

    I call photoshop. (“Thanks, Captain Obvious.”)

    Any chance the Ron Paul blimp will capture photos from the air of the eeeevil NAFTA superhighway as it eats away at US sovereignty, and, and……

    I gotta hand it to you, it’s hard to parody these people.

    Good one, but I think the message is far simpler: “Everyone, I am not quite in my right mind!”

    I have friends coming into town from PA for that. I couldn’t decide whether to go with them or campaign for Hillary in NH with a very cute Clintonista who has his own log cabin. Finally I shrugged off both bros and hos and reverted to political apathy.

    What’s the deal with the EVOL shtick, anyway? What the hell does the Paul campaign have to do with love? They’re a loose confederation of libertarians, racists, and assorted losers. The only plank in the Paul platform is “The hell with you, Jack”. They wouldn’t know love if it bit them in the ass, which – frankly – it has been known to do.

    The only thing they love is their own self image.

    Now Kucinich … Kucinich doesn’t make Love, Kucinich is Love.

    Damn. Just you wait ’til I deploy teh mikey blimp.

    It will dominate the skies, spewing pessimism and drano, leaving nothing but sobbing widdows and barking dogs.

    Oh, and Pinko…

    Meanwhile, Guiliani’s piloting the Hindenburg, approaching the mooring mast at Lakehurst…

    BOOM!

    It’s burst into flames! It burst into flames, and it’s falling, it’s crashing! Watch it! Watch it! Get out of the way! Get out of the way! It’s fire—and it’s crashing! It’s crashing terrible! Oh, my! Get out of the way, please! It’s burning and bursting into flames…this is terrible; this is the worst of the worst political catastrophes in the world. Crashing, oh! Four- or five-hundred feet into the sky and it—it’s a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. It’s smoke, and it’s flames now and the campaign is crashing to the ground, not quite to the nomination…

    Oh, the mendacity! Oh, the scandals!

    Pfft. Old news.

    That thing was circling the skies over Fenway Park for several days last October, providing a platform for those awesome aerial shots we all (well, most of us) enjoyed on our teevees.

    PS – Ahem. Think I’ll get a new publicist, or perhaps I just need to stop burying teh lede.

    Blimps are cool. I saw the Goodyear blimp once. On the Highway of NAFTA, I-35. I was driving north in Iowa to the Twin Cities and there was, as big as life an twice as natural. Way cool.

    I guess it was heading from a Chiefs game to a Vikings game or something. Or, it was laying the route that the mexicanislamofascist hordes will be taking to conquer our precious bodily fluids.

    I don’t think he’s actually piloting it – at least, this guy ain’t no Ron Paul that I know of.

    Those motherfuckers are giving Bush all he wants with the FISA bill. Reid won’t even honor Dodd’s hold.

    Back in aught-four the Bush campaign had a balloon with the word cRAWford printed on it. Bush backers didn’t understand the hidden message, and those who didn’t go to Chuck E Cheese didn’t see it at all.

    December 14, 2007 at 23:23

    Zounds! One could only hope with such a fine airship, the likes of which has only been seen in “Fictional Science’ penny dreadfuls, that Mr. Paul would be well advised to take his Zeppelin to Southern climes and fight back the ravening hordes of Hispaniola invading from the Mexican Empire.

    Rather then, as he seems to see fit, making ill-use of his time looygagging over fine Christian, god fearing cities of the North like a delicate soap bubble.

    Yes, but modern technology allows us to add the calorific condiments. The kids speak of some transformational tool called ‘fotoshoppe’.

    The Ronpaulians are obviously unaware that Boston is under a foot of snow, with a Nor’easter on its way with 36 hours. If they take a blimp to Boston this weekend there could be a terribly tragic and fairly amusing blimp mishap.

    America’s Mayor requests that you not use the phrase “Giuliani camp”. Similarly, please refrain from comments that hizzoner’s momentum is “dragging” or that he is “made up like an old French whore”. That sort of comment only serves to coarsen the debate. Thank you, and 9/11.

    Dear Giuliani Campaign,

    You seem to have forgotten the multiple quotes after 9/11. This inidcates an improper and perhaps treasonous lack of enthusiasm for the deaths of thousands of Americans. I am forced to report you to the Department of Homeland Security.

    That is all.
