Ron Paul disses Palin fans

In a new interview with Politico, Ron Paul says Sarah Palin supporters are the elephants-as-usual kind of herd.

"[Her supporters are] more establishment, conventional Country-Club type of Republicans.

I wonder whether she's energizing the 15-20 year olds. That would be a question I would have. Because she doesn't talk about the Federal Reserve and some of these issues. She doesn't talk too much about personal liberties, civil liberties, getting rid of drug laws, attacking the war on drugs, punishing people who torture.

.... I am probably less partisan and therefore she is going to appeal to partisan Republicans better."

Among some of history's enduring mysteries are who shot JFK, the lost colony at Roanoke, and the outcome of a death match between Palinites and Paulites.

Ironically enough, Palin and Paul tied for third place in CPAC's 2009 straw poll.

That's actually kind of a shame, because Palin once said Paul was a politician that she admired.

Not too shabby that Palin tied for 3rd with Paul in the CPAC straw poll, considering that she wasn't even there speaking to her supporters and both Paul and Romney were.
