Bubba to Ronulan Troofers: You're Nuts!
Bill Clinton now ranks #1 and tied for #2 in our "favorite putdowns" of the kooks.
Eventually, Clinton stopped outside a bakery, offered some remarks, and took questions. As he was answering one on Iraq, one of the Paul backers interrupted and shouted that the Sept. 11 attacks were an inside job, and that the U.S. didn’t need to be in Iraq and Afghanistan.
When he dropped an F-bomb, the crowd booed. Clinton, who had tried to talk over the man, gave up.
"You wanna know what I think?” Clinton said. “You guys who think 9/11 was an inside job are crazy as hell. My wife was the senator from New York when that happened. I was down at Ground Zero. I saw the victims' families. You're nuts."
Thumbs up, Bill!
Mark Steyn chips in:
Too true. Many of my friends and neighbors are supporting Ron Paul. He has by far the largest number of lawn signs (or snowbank signs) in New Hampshire's three northern counties. And when the votes are all counted he may yet push Giuliani into fifth place. I know Derb thinks he's a serious chap who'll return America to minimalist constitutional government, but on the ground you hardly get a word about such stuff either from the candidate or his noisy supporters. You do, however, hear a lot of paranoid drivel from folks who are indistinguishable from the kook left.
Anti-war? Fine. Isolationist? Cool. But "inside job"? Clinton's right. (And good for him for saying it: John Edwards would have nodded thoughtfully and promised to get back to the guy.)
Actually, he did.
