Continuing on the whacko theme: Tancredo, Paul, Romney

I read today that Tom Tancredo is dropping out of the race for the GOP nomination. I think his decision probably had something to do with the fact that he polled exactly "0" in South Carolina. It looks as if the angry nativist act didn't go over too well, not even in South Carolina. Go figure.

This is not to say he couldn't make some lucky Republican presidential candidate a great running mate, though. I mean, Ron Paul is still out there appealing to the likes of David Black of WPB, FLA. It seems Paul accepted a $500 campaign donation from the proprietor of Stormfront, a white supremacist Web site which extols the virtues of "White Pride World Wide." I'm sure Mr. Black (ironic name there David) is on-board with bombing Mecca, amongst other things.

This is the best part about this story, though, Paul's campaign says he's not giving the money back. Campaign spokesman Jesse Benton says Paul will "take the money and try to spread the message of freedom. And that's $500 less that this guy has to so whatever it is he does." [Like he doesn't know.]

Why not take money from drug dealers and child pornographers, too? I mean, that's money they won't have to spend on whatever it is they do, right? I'd look into that, Jesse, there's lots of money there to spread the word about freedom.

Ron Paul really has quite a legion of crackpots out there pushing for him, doesn't he? He's got the tax-resisters hold up in some cabin in New Hampshire, who he told NEWSWEEK he considered "heroic," and then there's his odd conspiracy theory about the NAFTA "super highway" through the Americas. [And they laughed at Hillary]

Swiftboater Jerome Corsi's book "The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger With Mexico and Canada" has made quite an impression on Paul who explains that there's "an unholy alliance of foreign consortiums and officials from several governments" pushing the idea of "an integrated North American Union -- complete with currency, a cross-national bureaucracy, and virtual borderless travel within the Union."

Soon we'll all be getting paid in "Ameros" which, naturally, will also have magnetic strips in them to track our every move.

NEWSWEEK reports that there is actually a highway being built in Texas to go down to Mexico, but it isn't quite the road to global enslavement Corsi and Paul paint. What I find interesting about this story is that the consortium (there's that word "consortium" again) is a Spanish/Texan affair called Cintra/Zachary which is represented by none other than Rudy Giuliani's law firm.

Aliens! Nude conspiracies . . . My God, Ron Paul was RIGHT! [Paraphrasing Homer Simpson from Treehouse of Horror VII, in case you didn't catch the reference.]

I'm thinking Ron Paul might want to ring up Japan's Defense Minister Shigeru Ishiba and see if he's got any insight into this whole "super highway" issue. I hear he's of the mind there isn't any evidence that UFO controlled by aliens don't exist. For that matter, Mitt Romney might want to get in while the water's hot and figure out if these aliens aren't related to the Angel Moroni. [They could be Scottish aliens, the MacOronis. I don't know.]
