Ron Paul has endorsed one of the looniest men in Congress, Rep. Paul Broun, in his race to replace Saxby Chambliss in the Senate from Georgia. And of course, he says it’s all about restoring the Constitution, something Broun wouldn’t recognize if it smacked him in the face.
“If we’re going to restore our Constitution and put our nation back on the path to prosperity, we must elect principled conservatives who will fight in Washington,” Paul, a former presidential candidate with deep tea party support, said in an email Thursday. “Paul Broun will continue fighting, and that’s why I endorsed his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Georgia.”
Just for fun, let’s take a look at some of the crazy and stupid things Broun has said on a regular basis. This is the guy who said that evolution and the big bang are “lies straight from the pit of hell” (and this guy is on the House Science Committee). He voted for nutcase Allen West to be speaker of the house after he was defeated in the last election. He claimed that “the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one.”
Ron Paul just endorsed this guy.
