Even Paul Krugman Recognizes Ron Paul Got Screwed in the Maine Caucuses

Krugman writes (without mentioning Ron Paul's name)
Oh, wow. It turns out that caucuses in some parts of Maine were postponed — and then told that their votes wouldn’t count. And yes, it does seem that the disenfranchised caucuses were the least pro-Romney.

So maybe Romney didn’t actually win Maine, after all.


  1. He whose name must not be mentioned

  2. The Republican National Committee is running a criminal enterprise.

    1. Stands to reason since it's a feeder system for an even bigger criminal enterprise.

  3. As Bob correctly points out, Krugman didn't mention Ron Paul in the article. BUT, if you look in the "Recent Posts" section to the right, the title of the post reads correctly with the addition of the subtitle "Ron Paul, disenfranchised" neatly tucked away from an undiscerning liberal eye and omitted from the main article.

    Sly devil that Kruggy is...

  4. So 8 missing precincts in Iowa...that *won't* be found.

    And now this blatant disenfranchisement.

    Funny how mere counting is so hard all of a sudden.

    Now would be a great time to plug Hans-Hermann Hoppe's wonderful book: Democracy: The God That Failed

  5. And the beauty of it is that Ron Paul figured out the enterprise and also figured out how to game the system and is now using it to his advantage and there isn't anything they can do about it.

    He has the MOST delegates and that's all that matters! They wanted to game the system? Fine, Ron Paul apparently is the better player!

  6. Mad at dirty tricks? Come on. This isn't new. The thing that is funny to me is that people think it's bad now. These new jacks have no idea. I feel like laughing in their face and telling them, "Welcome to the party, kiddies!"

    This current garbage, while not good, is far and away exponentially better than what happened in the 2007-2008 primary campaign. The level of disrespect and dirty tricks was much worse then. It was also impossible to deal with because our numbers were much, much smaller at the time.

  7. ... off topic, but I wanted to relay to you that marc faber says "Ron paul would be a very good president" in this clip at the 1510 mark
