The Daily Stupid: Ron Paul

This morning’s dose of stupid comes from libertarian/republican presidential candidate, Ron Paul.

You see, Ron is not too happy that jihadi terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki was killed by predator drones in Yemen. source

Paul said al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamic cleric suspected of involvement in several terror plots, should have been afforded a trial as an American citizen.

“No, I don’t think that’s a good way to deal with our problems,” Paul told MSNBC. “Al-Awlaki was born here, he is an American citizen. He was never tried or charged for any crimes. No one knows if he killed anybody. We know he might have been associated with the underwear bomber. But if the American people accept this blindly and casually that we now have an accepted practice of the president assassinating people who he thinks are bad guys, I think it’s sad.”

Attack of the Killer Cantaloupes

From Times UK


Cantaloupes infected with listeria have sparked the deadliest US foodborne disease outbreak in more than a decade and are likely to claim more victims in the weeks ahead, officials have warned.

5:27PM BST 29 Sep 2011

Thirteen people have died and 72 have fallen ill after eating cantaloup from Colorado-based Jensen Farms in the first-ever outbreak of the pathogen in whole melons, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Four distinct strains of listeria monocytogenes – a bacterium that causes listeriosis and is among the most virulent foodborne pathogens – have been traced to Jensen Farms, which issued a recall in mid-September

Four distinct strains? That sounds unusual to me.

CDC is warning that due to the long incubation period of the disease, the situation is very likely to get worse in the weeks to come.

Florida GOP Debate

Don’t look now, but Newt Gingrich just won another Republican debate. Tonight in Orlando, Florida, he was the clear winner. Newt came across as the smartest and most complete candidate in the room. He even had the best “moment” of all of the candidates.

When asked what he would do to help the country regain its confidence, Newt’s answer was a homerun. He recalled the Ronald Reagan bromide: “When your brother-in-law is out of work, you’re in a recession. When you are out of work, you’re in a depression. When Jimmy Carter’s out of work, the country will be in recovery.” Newt said the defeat of Barack Obama would be the single most important economic stimulus that the country needs.

Rick Perry lost ground tonight. So did the Massachusetts governor, who reminded me again of why I would like to punch him in the mouth. Michelle Bachman’s biggest problem is that she isn’t Sarah Palin. Ron Paul, John Huntsman, and that Johnson fellow somehow think they are running for the libertarian nomination. Sorry, but they were just on the wrong stage. Herman Cain and Rick Santorum had their opportunities, but didn’t change their also-ran status.

Unless Sarah Palin gets in the race, I’m going to have to seriously consider Newt Gingrich for the top spot.

Anyway, that’s the way I saw it. What about you?
