Never Mind the Bollocks Guys, Here's Ron Paul!

|

Jay Leno's show tonight has a lineup worth waiting up for: The Sex Pistols and Ron Paul!

Sadly, tonight's episode also features Tom Cruise, who will no doubt declaim XOD, or Xenu-Occupied Government.

  1. Is that what happens to Ron Paul when the full moon comes out?

  2. It’s like a Before and After picture of a guy watching a Tom Cruise marathon.

  3. Hey, they switched the position of the pictures. No fair.

  4. The Sex Pistols are still alive? I love John Lydon. He accuses everyone of being a sellout but has no problem with reforming the Pistols. Why on earth would he do that if not to sell out for money. He is just Sting without the villa in Italy.

  5. One good thing about this lineup is that Dr. Paul will be the most sane looking of the bunch. Not that I’m saying Paul’s kooky, but that the MSM perceives him as kooky.

  6. That’s a harsh line up to put Paul in. I hope he pulls it off.

  7. Ron Paul is officially the Flavor of the Month.

    Remarkable what he’s done so far. Fox and their flying monkeys came THAT CLOSE to getting him shut out of the debates as a fringe loser after Benito went after him for his statement about terrorism, and now look at him.

  8. RP and Tommy Croooz (sic) movie as balancing each other out?

    He is just Sting without the villa in Italy.
    OMG! John -that’s fucking cold. I love it! In the business, that is known as “dead on balls accurate”

  9. Fox and their flying monkeys came THAT CLOSE to getting him shut out of the debates as a fringe loser after Benito went after him for his statement about terrorism, and now look at him.

    I merely had a mild dislike of Giuliani until the debates, when I saw how Rudy treats his colleagues. Is that how he’ll act around foreign heads of state? Laughing while they try to make a point? What a prick.

    joe,

    As far as Paul getting shut out, where did you see that? Not that I’m questioning it, but I’d like to read the article.

    All,

    Is the next GOP debate the YouTube one? If so, no wonder they’d want Ron “Captain Internet” Paul banned!

  10. Thank you VM.

  11. Nevermind, the YouTube one isn’t until Nov. 28th. I hope they don’t find any reason to ax Dr. Paul by then…

  12. It won’t matter that it’s a YouTube debate Taktix. CNN will sufficiently butcher any YouTube submissions that venture to ask questions that CNN wouldn’t ask.

  13. Reinmoose,

    You are most likely correct, but the snowman question gave me hope…

  14. I’m betting that if CNN were to actually adopt a policy where they randomly selected videos from the submissions they received, 90% of them would be from RP supporters.

  15. He is just Sting without the villa in Italy.

    Wow. Feel the burn. To be fair, Lydon’s got nothing that resembles “Fields of Gold” or – and this is the kicker – “All for Love.” Seriously. Bryan Adams. Rod Stewart. Sting. Together. Lamin’ it up in a way that had previously only been attempted by duets (I’m lookin’ at you, Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson).

  16. He accuses everyone of being a sellout but has no problem with reforming the Pistols. Why on earth would he do that if not to sell out for money.

    The ’95 reunion tour was called the Filthy Lucre tour. I’m pretty sure he knows when he’s selling out and he is proud to proclaim it.

  17. “Lamin’ it up in a way that had previously only been attempted by duets (I’m lookin’ at you, Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson).”

    Willie Nelson has had a duet with practically everybody on the planet.

  18. I thought the “top tier” all had (entirely coincidental) schedule conflicts with the YouTube debate.

  19. That’s a harsh line up to put Paul in. I hope he pulls it off.

    I hope he sings a duet with Johnny Rotten! A nice Anarchy In the USA would really hit the spot!

  20. In particular, I remember Mitt Romney saying that the presidential debates shouldn’t sink to the level of having snowmen ask questions…laughing into your mike while your opponent is answering a question, on the other hand, is apparently OK.

  21. Actually, I’m not worried about Paul being upstaged. Cruise’s people better worry about the potential for Cruise to be upstaged.

    Doesn’t the Tonight Show seat its audience by having people wait in line outside, first come first served? If that’s still the case, I imagine Paul people will swamp the studio. Cruise is going to meet dead silence and Paul will get his usual rock star reception.

  22. Having three complete lunatics as guests is a very fitting halloween line up for Leno.

  23. Don’t forget to donate to Paul today! This is the second money bomb and end of month surge. Let’s get his October numbers up.

    GO RON PAUL

  24. I think the actual penis loses hands down.

  25. Edward:

    What about these dudes, aren’t they lunatics? If they aren’t, I don’t who wouldn’t be a lunatic then. If, after watching that video, you do not think that RG, MR, MH are lunatics, then the media has certainly succeeded in rendering you and themselves as lunatics.

  26. If you all want to make sure FOX wont drop DR. Paul from the debates, whrite them and tell the that if they do you will vote for Hillary.

  27. Harro EDDDDIEEEEE!

    AND ONCE AGAIN, YOU ARE CORRECT! HOWEVER, IS THAT A TRACE OF BITTERNESS THAT YOU WERE CUT AS A REGULAR ON LENO?

    IT’S TRUE! HE TRIED OUT AS A RECURRING FEATURE CALLED, “MIME MONKEY IN A BOX”. ONE TIME HE ACTUALLY BORED HIMSELF TO SLEEP! BECAUSE HE FORGOT TO HAVE AN OPENING IN THE BOX SO THE AUDIENCE COULD SEE HIS ACT!! IT’S TRUE!

    BUT EEEEDDDDIEEEEE TOLD ME THAT THIS YEAR, IN HONOR OF THE EXALTED, FEARED, AND BELOVED URKOBOLD, HE IS GOING TO DRESS AS A WACKY WAVING INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING TUBE MAN!

  28. Cruise’s best film, Cocktail

    You are kidding, right?*

    Right?

    *I know, it’s a trick question. There is no best TC film.

  29. BUT EEEEDDDDIEEEEE TOLD ME THAT THIS YEAR, IN HONOR OF THE EXALTED, FEARED, AND BELOVED URKOBOLD, HE IS GOING TO DRESS AS A WACKY WAVING INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING TUBE MAN!

    Is he going to sing the love theme to Perfect Hair Forever?

  30. laughing into your mike while your opponent is answering a question, on the other hand, is apparently OK.

    If we can laugh at the dumb bastards, why can’t he?

  31. hier is the pilot to Perfect Hair Forever 🙂

  32. Urkobolds: remove my quotes from your website immediately. If you do not comply, there will be legal consequences. This is not a joke.

    Fuck with bull, and you WILL get the horns. Fools.

  33. Edward:

    Have you legally copyrighted that material?

  34. MMMM. NAVY. KIDNEY. BLACK. PINTO. GARBANZO.

    THINKING ABOUT BEANS. DELICIOUS. BEEEAAANNNNSSS!

    BEANS ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS. DEFINITELY NOT A JOKE.

  35. “If we can laugh at the dumb bastards, why can’t he?”

    It just makes more people less willing to vote for Guiliani when he can’t act civil and acts arrogantly.

  36. “Cruise’s best film, Cocktail”

    The only good think about that movie was the Beach Boys’ “Kokomo”.

  37. Actually, anything written in a tangible medium is copyrighted. No filing or anything is necessary. Fair use would most likely apply to the situation described here, however. Not to mention that one must prove actual damages when statutory damages aren’t available (they wouldn’t be in this case).

  38. *sniffle sniffle whine*

    Those mean Urkobolds are cyber bullying me.
    It’s not fair!!!!

  39. “If you all want to make sure FOX wont drop DR. Paul from the debates, whrite them and tell the that if they do you will vote for Hillary.”

    That wouldn’t bother Rupert Murdock. I understand he’s supporting Hillary.

  40. Paul & Lydon…

    Separated at birth?

    Odd I never noticed the resemblance before this side by side.

    I wonder if Paul can talk when Lydon is drinking water?

  41. Wow. Blog drama. I can feel the tension in the air!

    I can’t believe it. There’s the trig midterm tomorrow, and we’re being chased by Eddie, the killer pimp!

    I’m gonna throw up on you Joel

    (with recognition of Tommy C’s role as Porsche pilot in “Risky Business”)

  42. iih – don’t bother trying to change Edwardddddoooo!!!’s mind. For one thing, he’s probably some troll seeking a response.

    If not, he’s someone who spends all his time telling Paul supporters that they are nuts – as opposed to his perfectly sane behavior of constantly screaming at people who have no respect for his opinion.

  43. Xenu? Didn’t he get his ass kicked by the Hulk once?

  44. You can use Edward’s quotes as long as you are using them to comment upon or criticize him. Duh.

  45. Xenu? Didn’t he get his ass kicked by the Hulk once?

    Naw, bro. You know, Xenu!

  46. Thanks for the heads up, Nick!

    Here’s where to give to Ron Paul:

    The Sex Pistols…29 years ago:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVPCS1yWEpU

  47. Baked: Haha… OK.

  48. WHICH EDWARD IS THE REAL, WHICH IS THE FAKE. REAL EDWARD KNOWS HOW TO CONTACT THE URKOBOLD VIA EMAIL.

    FAKE EDWARD CAN GO BACK TO PLAYING RING AROUND THE ROSIE WITH JEAN BART, RICK SANTORUM’S DOG, AND AWIK DUNDEROOOOOOO.

    WHILE THE HUMOR AND PARODY OF THE URKOBOLD SHALL CONTINUE.

  49. Minion,

    That’s easy. The real Edward is the one who comes running when you yell “CUNTSORE!” out the backdoor.

  50. Eddie. kiss kiss. toilet. open sore. kiss. penicillin. better. hugs. kitten.

  51. He’s my angry next door neighbor who apparently has a limit on his tolerance for potty mouths?
    Or is he my angry across-the-alley neighbor who was outside playing with his kids?

  52. For RP supporters – do you see the mistakes and lessons of Howard Dean’s candidacy offering any important lessons?

    Also, if RP gains momentum and becomes “mainstream”, what are potential GOP changes? Would this mark a return to the Reagan “all things to all people” image, or would the social conservative, “neocon” win the day, and what effect would that have?

    (besides underscoring the weakness in the “leadership” in the Dems)

    oh yeah, fuck those wacky Urkobold jerks. Phew. Almost forgot this was a parody of a silly poster hier!

  53. HAY YOU WACKY JERK. GET THE HELL OFF MY LAWN. DON’T MAKE ME GET ALL “BIRDHOUSE NEIGHBOR” ON YOUR ASS. NOW GIVE THE GOVERNOR A HARUMPH.

    EDDIE TOLD ME (IN A FANTASY-INSPIRED DREAM SEQUENCE) THAT HE WANTS YOU TO GIVE HIM BACK “THOSE PHOTOS”. HE SAID YOU WOULD KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.

    I’D DO IT IF I WERE YOU – THAT EDDIE IS ONE REEEEEEL TUFFFFF GUY!

  54. Xenu? Didn’t he get his ass kicked by the Hulk once?

    Naw, bro. You know, Xenu!

    Oh, my mistake. I was thinking Xemnu.

  55. NOW GIVE THE GOVERNOR A HARUMPH.

    Harumph!
    Harumph!
    Harumph!

  56. WATCH YOUR ASS.

    (Or Eddie will get all Awik Dunder(head)ooooo on yer ass)

  57. Ron Paul is the shnitzel! I love neo-Nazis!

    http://arkansastonight.com/2007/10/ron-pauls-neo-nazi-problem.html

  58. I ? schnitzel!

    Apart from that, I also hear that neo-nazis love ice cream. So, no thinking person would choose ice cream for dessert, right?

    Aside to Heinrich Himmler: I also hear that the neo-nazis love your momma, knowhutimean? I tried loving your momma, but your momma’s soooo ugly, I wouldn’t touch her with Ernst Roehm’s dick!

    German sticklers for spelling and umlat’s and whatnot can look up the html and republish my comment.

  59. to highnumber:

    Obergruppenfuhrer Ron Paul will have his SS turn you into a lampshade.

  60. omg the shit eating grin on paul’s face while on stage with the sex pistols before the end credits was priceless.

  61. How else are you going to respond to an ass being rubbed at you from several feet away?

  62. Brilliant performance by Dr Paul!! A candidate who appreciates both Austrian economics and our constitution and brings em up on a popular national show is a candidate worth fighting for!

    Jay Leno asked Ron Paul questions germane to his pro-liberty positions that lotsa folks wonder about and Paul just hit home run after home run. Dr Paul revealed to Leno’s audience what a naturally honest, and straightforward guy he is. I’ve never in my life felt better about supporting a political candidate.

    What a nice touch it was for Paul to shake Johnny Rotten’s hand after Rotten asked Cong Paul from the stage when we are going to leave Iraq. If Rotten had a chance to converse with Ron Paul, there’s a good chance that he’ll endorse him. They’re both rebellious and opposed to the coercive left.

  63. People with weak math skills unite! Support Ron Paul!
