It's LaRouche, not Larusch. LaDouche is also an acceptable pejorative.

Sullivan may say "ooh, unfair, unfair", but Ron Paul really does need to address the fact that his campaign is bringing out tons of America's creepiest weirdos from the caves they've been living in since Ruby Ridge. Montana Freemen, white power loons and neo-Nazis, Federal Reserve abolishers, militiamen, black helicopter people, the nuts stockpiling weapons against the invasion from Canada, alternate currency freaks -- it's the whole underbelly of paranoid right-wingery.

Paul has always derived support from them, but if he wants to pretend he's on a national stage now, he needs to cut them off at the knees. I hope he doesn't, and somehow wins the nomination, because it would be funny to see Clinton get 80% of the vote.

Wonderin' if Bush'll furnish the Gores with Air Force One so they won't have to fly commercial to Oslo for the Nobel ceremonies on December 10. Or am I Marie of Roumania? [ref. Dorothy Parker]

You can lead a Gore to culture, but you can't make him think.
