Has she ever met the average Ron Paul supporter? If not, she can read Alex Jones’ Prison Planet and Info Wars (Paul appears regularly on Jones’ radio show) to see how they think. Both sites have been turned into Ron Paul shrines.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) said Tuesday night that Republicans who would marginalize Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) are making a big mistake.
“Here’s the deal,” Palin told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto. “The GOP would be so remiss to marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters as we come out of Iowa tonight and move down the road to New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, et cetera. If we marginalize these supporters who have been touched by Ron Paul and what he believed in over these years, well, then, through a third party run of Ron Paul’s or the Democrats capturing those independents and these libertarians who supported what Ron Paul’s been talking about, well, then the GOP is going to lose. And then there will be no light at the end of the tunnel.”
“So, the worst thing that the GOP machine can do is marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters,” she added.
Update: In the comments, a former dem makes a good point about keeping Paul from going third party.
