Ron Paul

Revolution Rock

|

Here's a bonus feature from Ames: the "Revolution March" from the Ron Paul tents to the entrance hall to the Hilton Coliseum. I just kept the camera rolling until halfway through the march, so this is by some distance the longest thing I've ever YouTubed. If Tarkovsky had been editing with me he would have cut some stuff. That's how long this is.

  1. I think the only thing I’d find less interesting than participating in a ‘march’ would be watching one on a computer.

    Does anyone get beat up by cops? Were women groped by drunken gangs of puerto ricans? If not, tell me why I should care…

  2. The gangs of puerto ricans running around groping women have to be drunk for you to enjoy the video?

    You have fairly specific tastes …

  3. The guys dressed up in the Revolutionary uniforms with the drum and flute(?) was a brilliant touch. (around 2-3 minutes in.)

    It’s definitely not that interesting except for the fact that we attracted a lot of attention from people that didn’t know where the RP tent was and didn’t know who he was. This happened I believe shortly before he spoke in the Collesium and there were quite a few people in there listening to him speak. So if they got a few people to come in and listen to RP it was well worth it.

  4. I clicked “related videos” and it came up with these:

  5. Ouch! That stung. David, I’m shocked that you just penned such a critical piece on Ron Paul. The ending was particularly stinging; “Ron Paul’s sign torn in half by the trash can.”

    I gotta hand it to you Reasonoids. I’ve been cynical about you all, thinking you were a bunch of RP Dittoheads.

    After this article I’ll have to re-evaluate.

    I for one, congratulate you for the piece. But things are going to get awfully lonely for you in the coming days, as soon as the Ron Paul cultists go on the attack on you.

  6. donnnnnndeeeeeerrrrroooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    eric! look! i think that hot dog vendor might not have all his licensing filled out correctly! go tackle him and destroy his livelihood! make rudy proud!

  7. After this article I’ll have to re-evaluate.

    Donnnnnnnnnnnnndeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrroooooooohhhhhhhh!!!!!!

    I am surprised you have the intellectual capacity to re-evaluate you own thinking. That seems to be a major flaw amongst ideologues.

    I suppose I’ll have to re-evaluate my opinion of you.

    Hmm… uhh… yep! Congratulations! You’re still a dick!

  8. why I should care

    If you didn’t care already, there’s no reason to start now. The thing that’s being documented here is the enthusiasm and dedication Ron Paul has attracted. No one else was able to stage a march.

    Incidentally, do I need to loose some weight?

  9. i like at the end when the guy is like WHOS THE MAN? – RON PAUL!

  10. Props for the Tarkovsky joke.

  11. I may be a dick Taxtic.

    But this dick is firmly entrenched right inside your mouth.

  12. I don’t know who Taxtic is or why he’s fellating DONDEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!, but whatever.

    Taktix, meanwhile, would never stoop so low.

  13. eew… firmly entrenched? That’s not a phrase you want to hear in relation to your dick. Maybe you could have said something like… Hey Dondero! My cock has cultural hegemony over all you orifices!

    Also, I suspect the reason he misspelled Taktix’s name is fear of copyright infringement.

  14. Let us not forget, the primary purpose of the Iowa straw poll is to provide a legal avenue for the front-runners to funnel a million bucks to the Iowa Republican party.

    The only time there is a political meaning to the event, is at one of those rare occasions when a dark-horse candidate makes an unexpectedly good showing.

    Ron Paul, did better than he should have in Iowa, but not good enough to make much of a long-term difference.

  15. That’s pretty fucked up right there. Who are you again?

  16. But this dick is firmly entrenched right inside your mouth.

    Hmmm – do you think Rep Dan Savage was waiting to meet with Eric to discuss defecting to the Giuliani camp on that fateful night?

    Speaking of man-on-man action for one’s country, Prince Ludwig is the kind of hard-core patriot that Eric would love. (It’s Black Adder, so relax – fast forward to 3:19 if you are in a hurry)

  17. Eric D. has a straw pole.

  18. Eric Dondero–

    Wait… aren’t you the one “challenging” Ron Paul in a battle for the 14th district’s congressional seat — in much the same way that Lyndon LaRouche “challenged” Bill Clinton for the Democratic nomination?

    Granted, I’d be surprised if you could rummage up more than a few delusional Little Green Footballs readers to vote for you, but is talking publicly about having your dick “firmly entrenched right inside” what is presumably a man’s mouth really the best method of campaigning?

    And correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Giuliani’s dick already “firmly entrenched” in your mouth? I’m just trying to figure out how, logistically, this whole fellatio thing is supposed to work out.

  19. For a magazine called Reason…

  20. dammit donderoooooooooooh cut out the man love and get cracking! there are taxi drivers to harass and pot smokers to arrest!

  21. Wait… aren’t you the one “challenging” Ron Paul in a battle for the 14th district’s congressional seat . . .

    I definitely look forward to the future campaign ads where someone google’s Eric’s posts here at Reason.

    I can hardly wait for the video of some reporter sticking a mike in Eric’s face and asking him about this post in specific:

    I may be a dick Taxtic.

    But this dick is firmly entrenched right inside your mouth.

  22. Tarran, that guy who was wantin’ to pleasure Mr. Dondero was Rep. Bob Allen. Dan Savage was making fun Rep. Allen.

  23. I agree, women-groping in the vid need not be done by *drunken* puerto ricans… but that is the preferred M.O.

    boob-flashing in exchange for Ron Paul buttons would have been enough, frankly.

    Unless Rudy personally hit them with a high-pressure firehose and then sent packs of dogs after them, I am unimpressed. Parades/Marches are tres gayzorz.

    Maybe this will get interesting and Donder-of-olay will talk about his penis more

  24. Tarran, that guy who was wantin’ to pleasure Mr. Dondero was Rep. Bob Allen. Dan Savage was making fun Rep. Allen.

    Crap! This is what happens when I snark in a hurry.

  25. DONDEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I know Taxtic, and if you want to keep it you’d best take your piece out of his mouth. He is a nihilist, Eric, he believes in nosink*. NOSINK!

    *And he will bite off your johnson,
    DONDEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  26. Unless Rudy personally hit them with a high-pressure firehose and then sent packs of dogs after them, I am unimpressed.

    Fair enough, but can you at least be unimpresseder with the other candidates minions?

  27. Wow, I must have struck a chord…

  28. I may be a dick Taxtic.

    But this dick is firmly entrenched right inside your mouth.

    Wow, you even managed to misspell something you could have cut-and-pasted.

    CTRL-C, then CTRL-V.

    Little guidance heir, just in case you forget again.

    Or, on the other hand, if you misspelled it on purpose, that would have to be the dumbest fucking joke I’ve ever seen. I mean, that’s like Carlos Mencia dumb.

    Good luck being Rudy’s jiz-rag for the next four years! Cheers!

  29. Fair enough, but can you at least be unimpresseder with the other candidates minions?

    “Unimpressed” for me is a binary state of being. There is no scale. it is an On/Off switch. I am generally unimpressed by minions in general. That includes libertoid minions. They’re all kinda lame in my world.

  30. Hit and Run posts a YouTube vid in which yours truly makes a notable appearance.

    The corresponding thread degenerates into a running dick joke.

    Karma or Kismet?

  31. But this dick is firmly entrenched right inside your mouth.

    Somehow, Dondero, I doubt that your confession to being gay is going to play well in a Republican primary.

  32. I’d rather be governed by a random selection of those good folks marching than I would by any of the announced GOP or Dem candidates, with the exception of Ron Paul.

  33. I’m thinking that that assemblage of folks has gota have the highest average IQ of any Iowa caucus candidate demonstration in history.

  34. is talking publicly about having your dick “firmly entrenched right inside” what is presumably a man’s mouth really the best method of campaigning?

    Agreed. If Dondero’s going to discuss entrenched dicks on the campaign trail, he should focus on the hookers he fucked in the Navy. Heterosexuality plays better, with Texas voters.

  35. Wow, I must have struck a chord…

    …a minor chord, a diminished chord…

  36. It was so an 11th chord

    Har har.

    Now i realize why my “all minions are lame” comment proabably rubbed you wrong.

    You have my condolences

  38. That doesn’t look like Warren. Where is the broken glass?

  39. Warren,

    Sorry. That was too easy. 🙁 On behalf of H&R, thank you for representin’.

  40. smacky,
    I’ll let you make it up to me 😉
