Ron Paul appeared on today’s edition of teevee shitparade Fox & Friends. In this 25 seconds or so Paul managed to speak before a commercial break, he found a window to call Mike Huckabee a fascist. Paul, responding to a question about the not-so-subliminal cross in Huckabee’s new Christmas ad, said it reminded him of a Sinclair Lewis quote: “When fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in the flag carrying a cross.” Indeed, 2001 was a bad year.

    I was trying to figure out the 2001 reference, too. The only thing I can think of is it has something to do with George Bush?

    September 11, 2001?

    I love how when somebody on Fox News says something that departs from their GroupThink that they immediately have to downplay the comment and get all uncomfortable. It really makes me laugh. Ron Paul is the only Republican that wouldn’t make me want to immediately move to Sweden if he got elected. Don’t get me wrong, he has many faults and I’d never vote for him, but at least he’s not “wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross.” It’s good to see a real Republican after so many years of Fundyism.
