Ron Paul Republicans and the Media-Humor

A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.

The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'

The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'

The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'

The biker replies, ?I'm a U.S. Marine and a Ron Paul Republican?

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
...and THAT pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days...

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin

and I've already told the story a few times

I stole this from an all too true Washington, D.C. fable...

Ron Paul's staff notified the media to meet their guy down near the Washington Monument, and on the edge of the Reflecting Pool at 1am, in order to have all their questions answered at one time.

At 1am the media all was gathered and the old Buick pulled up and Ron Paul got out from behind the wheel.

He walked over to the water and without pausing, just kept on walking. He walked around on the water for approx 30 minutes.

Coming back to shore he simply walked back to his Buick and drove off.

His media guy said to the assembled reporters: "and that's all there is to say about that."

The next day the headlines all read something like "Ron Paul wanders aimlessly around Capitol Mall."

Funny John!

I inserted "Ron Paul" in mine...and somehow it went from nothing to meaningful funny...but sad its so true.

We should collect these for a laugh zone...we all need it sometimes.

headline reads:

"Ron Paul Can't Swim"

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

Thank you for the Laugh my friend! I don't ride a Harley but a R1200GS BMW will work just fine in my re-telling of this story.
