PIMPING FOR PAUL

Posted by nicolen on November 29, 2007

hoftaylor2.jpgNow, I know that Ron Paul can’t pick his supporters. However, his magnetic appeal to weirdo’s kooks, racists, and bigots is truly astounding. After writing “The Ron Paul Revulsion,” I find that I wasn’t exhaustive enough. Therefore, I believe a Part II is just itching to be written.

In the meantime, however, The Grand Lodge of the Realm of Pennsylvania, that’s a KKK outfit, has thrown their support behind Paul, not to mention the Bunny Ranch in Nevada and I’m not talking rabbits here. This is from the Washington Post…

At the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, Politics & Strange Bedfellows

Turns out raising money in a brothel is harder than it looks. Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada, is so impressed with Ron Paul that he announced plans last week to put up a collection box at the door. His lawyers advised that anonymous donations are a no-no, so now he’s thinking of starting a PAC: “Hookers for Paul.”

The unconventional endorsement came after Hof got a call from Tucker Carlson (who’s writing a profile of the Republican presidential candidate) inviting him to Paul’s press conference in Reno. Hof, who calls himself a libertarian, was blown away: “He’s a live-and-let-live guy, ‘you don’t bother me, I don’t bother you.’ That’s our state,” he told us yesterday. “He’s not pro-prostitutes. He just doesn’t want the federal government meddling in states’ business.”

The former time-share salesman went back to the ranch and gathered up his bunnies — he’s got 500 on staff — and urged them to donate to the campaign; he’s also running a customer special: “If you come in the Bunny Ranch and say, ‘I’m pimping for Paul,’ you get two bunnies for the price of one.”

So how does this fit into the campaign’s plan for Nevada, where Paul is hoping to win big in January’s primary? “I guess that’s the price of freedom,” said spokesman Jesse Benton. “Ron’s a conservative Christian. Quite frankly, he finds prostitution personally morally abhorrent. Sometimes you have to put up with things that don’t jibe with your personal view of the world.”

Hof said he’ll vote for Paul, will personally donate the individual max of $2,300, and is hoping to show up at a Paul rally with a pink wheelbarrow full of Nevada silver dollars. A stunt? Sure, he said, but one designed to get voters’ attention. “We’re getting them to take a look,” he said. “If they look at Ron Paul, they’re going to like him.”

COMMENT: Actually, “Pimping For Paul” is something a lot of his supporters know about.
