FITSNews – June 13, 2008 – As much as we readily associate ourselves with the libertarianism espoused by soon-to-be-former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, we couldn’t get past the fact that his supporters (well, with a few exceptions) drove us absolutely crazy.

Seriously, it’s unhealthy to get that interested in politics, people. And while we know most of them were just high as kites and didn’t know any better, it was still a little creepy. Anyway, the question now is what are all these potheads going to do now that Paul is officially out of the race:

Paul’s announcement came on the first day of the (Texas) Republican convention, a time to unify and invigorate grassroots supporters.

“With the primary season now over, the presidential campaign is at an end,” Paul wrote in a letter posted on the Internet. “But the larger campaign for freedom is just getting started.”

We continue to believe that Paul will ultimately endorse Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr, but it remains to be seen whether the “Ralph Nader of the Republican Party” will have an adverse impact on GOP nominee John McCain‘s chances come November.  It also remains to be seen whether those baked beans Sic Willie is currently shoveling down his throat (for breakfast, no less) will have an adverse impact on our office air quality come fifteen minutes from now.
