    Ron Paul: I probably should have punched Sacha Baron Cohen

    A-PAUL-ING SACHA ANTIC

    Via HotAir: Ron Paul: I probably should have punched Sacha Baron Cohen
    "I was expecting an interview on Austrian economics," Paul said. "But by the time he started pulling his pants down, I . . . ran out of the room. This interview has ended."

    Paul said that "when this all gets out, I'm probably going to have to apologize to my supporters because I think most of them are going to figure out why in the world didn't I sock this guy in the nose?"
    Nah. You handled it just fine, Dr. Paul. Whoever it was that set up this "interview" on the other hand...

    As far as I can see it, Dr. Paul was deceived to the point he was physically vulnerable by total strangers, and, given his position as a sitting US Congressman, his life could have been in danger. Once at that point, I would not hold anyone morally or ethically wrong for actions taken to secure their personal safety.

    Me either, Brain! I would have had no problem if he socked him right in the jaw. It's just, no apologies are in order, on his part anyway.

    If he had punched him he would have been labeled a homophobe.

    Why is Hot Air talking about Ron Paul, exactly?

    LOL. I'm sure this will go to Dr Paul's advantage if he just laughs it off.

    What do you mean, whoever set up the interview? You know how tricky they are? They don't just walk up to you and say, "Ali G wants to interview Dr. Paul."
    "You know not what you are given, but forever will you know what has been taken away from you..."

    "As long as we live beyond our means we are destined to live beneath our means." - Ron Paul at a CNBC Debate in Michigan (10/09/07)

    What you could do is create an community organization and teach other Ron Paul supporters stuff you know.

    Uh, Ron Paul was about to get raped, man. It's called self defense. But I could see liberals screaming how he should have let Baron rape him, because doing otherwise would be considered intolerant and bigoted (IF it happened, of course)

    You know... upon further reflection.... I would've paid good money to see Ron punch this guy. In fact, it might be the only reason I'd watch the film.

    If someone did that to me and I was scared $#@!less with little to no place to run, then yeah, I would've socked him too.

    Screw "intolerance" when my mental/physical safety is being threatened.
