Ron Paul backed Cynthia McKinney in '08

One nutjob backed another.

Ron Paul backed Cynthia McKinney in her failed reelection bid in 2008.

This is from the first link.
Sarah Palin admonished Republicans not to ridicule Congressman Ron Paul. Sarah Palin is wrong. Ron Paul is a disloyal phony who has earned whatever contempt real Republicans have for him and his dangerously naive ideas about foreign policy. Ron Paul has shunned the party in the past, as he was the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988 and in 2008 he rejected the McCain/Palin ticket, instead embracing Cynthia McKinney and other third-party candidates for president 2008.

Like a kid who is losing a game, Ron Paul took his ball and went home in 2008.

But Missus Palin, sadly, seemed to be unaware of his disloyalty.
I can think of a lot of reasons not to back Ron Paul, and most - if not all - of them are higher up on the list than the fact that Paul was disloyal to the Republican party. There are much greater problems with him.

What she said was that we should respect his libertarian approach to government, particularly in amputating massive gangrenous limbs of the governmental money-burning apparatus [my very loose paraphrase].
This, btw, is the underlying and unifying philosophy of the tea party.

She said nothing about his foreign policy.

What she is, rightly, concerned about is that the Republicrats heading for the nomination, such as Romney or Santorum, don't betray the base by becoming "compassionate conservatives," i.e., Bush clones.

On the other hand, as far as the danger to the American government and the American people, I pretty much agree with you. I just don't know who's worse, Paul or Obama.

The fact that Palin is apparantly asking for Ron Paul luv and Glenn Beck has declared he'd vote for Paul over Gingrich should be a warning to the Jewish minority in the US about the solidity, foundations, and reliability of pro-Israel sentiments expressed by the GOP base. We just don't know where those folks will end up anymore than we know where the Dems or Obama will end up. We are a minority and our influence is very limited among the "masses".
