... not everybody was

... not everybody was laughing in that video though. we got some ron paul sleepers in there.

Here's a link

Trump was such an ass! Why did he even go? Didn't he know he'd be lampooned? He's really got fathead symdrome if he couldn't even laugh at his own expense.

that's an old joke...

and the only joke they can come up with when it comes to Ron and Rand Paul. They've got nothing else on them!

Notice, they were both mentioned in a list of real contenders for the White House in 2012...that is leaps and bounds ahead of where we were in 2008. Not only do we get mentions, but in the heart of the list...and the Pauls weren't the biggest butt of any jokes...When you compare them to everyone else, you see what a real joke the Republican party is.

Ron Paul wins every election by far!

Usually even the vote count confirms this fact.

  • Vote for something worth counting upon.
  • Make sure your vote counts.
  • Help count fairly.

Dr Ron Paul, 2012.

Can't win???? Ron Paul can't

Can't win????

Ron Paul can't lose!

The joke is on you seth and all statist.

DieBold? Counterfintting their way to their end of freedom?

Why pay DieBold to put vote counts into a tumbler of 1 & 0 digits? Resembles a free toaster oven lottery.

Arrest DieBold.

Let us count with 10 digits... Ballots hand counted at the precinct. One, by one. Count every one.

Put yourself in Seth's shoes, he did fine

Everyone there knew that Ron and Rand Paul are each too big a political target to not try and make fun of them somehow, but he chose to take on their possible father/son perspectives to play them off against each other.

It was Seth and his writer's jobs to come up with SOMETHING that would meet the press audience's expectation of his ability to aim brutal ridicule at often well-deserving politicians, as a kind of a mini-roast.

I believe Seth's writers did as best they could to appear even-handed when they took on the Pauls, as the punchline about Seth and his dad, "never going to be President either", was matched well to the humor of the media pundits and politicians present, without really bashing the good Dr.s for anything other than overoptimism.

The line with Rand telling his father,"Dad, you ruin EVERYTHING!" was only mildly humorous to those who listened, because everyone who knows and watches them as closely as the Press, know that no such contempt exists between them.

I'd expect that many of them wish that they could respect their fathers as well as Rand does his dad; giving him the credit he deserves for their shared efforts to thwart those who indeed, "ruin EVERYTHING"!

completely agree...

Its official, the Pauls have broken into national consciousness!

And as they say.... all press is good press, even the bad press.

Look at all the bad press at all the others before.... it only adds to popularity from here onwards. SNL dogged Palin, but it only added to her fame.

I suspect those of us at the daily paul will soon be like the year round residents in Daytona Beach, the minority of "locals" who get overwhelmed when the town's population quadruples with friendly "fair weather" visitors.

Welcome SNL fans.

The more I think about it, the more p.o'd I get

The continuous drip, drip, drip of "Ron Paul can't win" is getting me mad. I know it was done as a joke. I shouldn't be concerned...but damnit!...that's the one put-down that is self-fullfilling. If enough high profile people say it, and it is repeated endlessly by the MSM, then the People come to believe it and fullfill the expectation.

Clearly the MSM and the elites can't allow the People to individually make up their own minds...they have to imply that everyone has already decided, to there is no need to consider him.

But lookee over here: Pawlenty, Palin, and Romney are SERIOUS candidates who CAN win. How do you know? Because we'll spend the next year and a half telling you so.

Sickening.

Don't be down in the dregs. Ron Paul always wins!

Be who is counting?

No need to stress on this one

When pundits and politicians rant against the Pauls that way, I feel sorry for them that that's all they can really say. They have no real defense for the vast differences between Dr. Paul and themselves on nearly all sound moral and Constitutional issues.

Meyer's had to straddle the line between giving his audience what they wanted to hear, and the truth, because all humor must include some truth, real or perceived, to get a laugh of agreement.

By making a comparison between fathers and sons, the Pauls and the Meyers, Seth could distance himself from any serious attack against Ron and Rand, while echoing the talking points that the press and politicians are sooo hoping is true.

Thanks, I'm stepping back a bit

I have to admit, it is kind of funny.

“The basic flaw in capitalism, communism, socialism, or whatever

well-intentioned economic philosophy (which does NOT include cronyism), is not in the philosophies themselves, but rather in the level of consciousness of those who apply the philosophies.” ~katherine http://www.dailypaul.com/158620/the-tide-is-turning-against-...

"But it's even more serious than economics because if you rob people of their identity, rob them of their democracy, then all they are left with is nationalism and violence. I can only hope and pray, that the Euro project is destroyed by the markets before that really happens."

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Also cracked Tea Party racist joke

That whole dinner was a sad display of self-promoting arrogance from a tired, irrelevant relic of media outlets. Of course they're going to make hollow quips about Ron Paul's electability and throw out the race card. It's much easier than get into a philosophical debate they can't win.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

You take the most flak

when you are over the target. Actually it was kind of funny too.
