some extremely thought-provoking analysis there, dr. paul.

now before you wacky moonbat libs get all apeshit n' shit - *technically*, he's referring to 95% of black men >>IN D.C.<<. so like, it's only racialist if you're in the capitol, which is like, really small compared to the rest of the country - not to mention the world!

think about it. i haven't.

whoa, apparently i used some fancy HTML/internets "codes" in my post above that i was completely unaware of. so i totally lost the best part [right in the middle, too] and now i forgot what it was but it was funny.

those greater than / less than thingies are powerful. use them with caution.

What, nobody on the left knows about this until the Daily Kos mentions it? Perhaps the Slog should peruse evil right-wing websites more often - this has been discussed on Free Republic since at least May, and Little Green Footballs combed through old Paul newsletters back in November (spam filter prevents me linking)....

but the Slog is still THE SOURCE for Pit Bull news.

You guys at the slog sure seem to like Ron Paul.

He's a wonderful choice for the politically retarded.

he's not exactly the first wackjob from texas to run for something.

@3: I fixed you up. Next time time [ampersand]lt; for less than and [ampersand]gt; for greater than. Also use "capital" when you mean a city and not a building.

This "95% are criminal" claim is simply insane, obvs. But he also says:

"Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers."

Well ... is that part untrue?

Already covered here. But hey, anything that drives the Paulbots to being the patented ALL CAPS RAGE again will do just fine.

thank you, annie. i find all this capitol / capital business even more confusing than HTML code.

Already been debunked a thousand times, RP didn't write it, the staffer that did was fired.

Seriously, if you're not even going to do the minimum of fact-checking when repeating rumors why even pretend that you're different than Drudge or FreeRepublic or Digg?

d00d, bob. they WISH they were drudge, freerepublic, or digg. their ad revenue is through the roof.

The same is true of white men.

@14 - Call me old-fashioned, but when evaluating political candidates I base some of my evaluation on who they attract and who they associate with. George W. Bush attracted religious nutjobs and associates with hideous men (Rove, Cheney, etc.) which fueled my distrust of him and his administration. Ron Paul attracts looney white supremacists and associates with staffers who write racist tirades, which fuels my perception of him as a pointless political wack-job.

What the hell is freerepubli - oh, never mind, I don't actually care.

Old news. It has been proven that this comment was not made by Ron Paul, but instead that the newsletter from which it came was ghost authored by someone else. Do your research before you publish a story, you anti-freedom SLOG hippies.
