Skip to comments.Guess who’s a Ron Paul fan (Robert Novak! Also says "Thompson will get the nod")

Its Wednesday and Im posting, so those are two big fat hints right there. Of course: its the Prince of Darkness himself, Bob Novak. How could that be, when Novak has been pimping Fred Thompson for weeks? Well, acquaint yourself with Novaks weird sense of humor. Loathe as I am to link to the Washington Times, its in their Fishwrap (snicker) blog that he is quoted as follows:
When asked to rate the current field of Republican presidential candidates, Novak didnt have any kind words for the current top-tier field of Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney and John McCain. But when pressed as to who he thinks will be the eventual nominee, Novak said he expects Thompson to get the nod. However, Novak offered his own personal endorsement of Texas congressman Ron Paul. Hes a very engaging person Id like to see him as president, Novak said. Can you imagine him at the United Nations?
He is also quoted as saying of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), I think hes the worst leader of the Senate since Bill Frist. Hard to disagree with him there, but since Reid has been the only leader of the Senate since Bill Frist, I guess that also makes him the best too. Funny guy, that Novak.
Elsewhere, in this weeks exclusive Novak newsletter, he is uncharacteristically harsh on the GOP in re: to his ongoing attack on Congressional earmarks:
The question for Republicans is simple: how many more of their members have to go to jail before their leaders embrace the concept of reform? The motivation need not even be so negative: The conservative ideological position of limited government gives the GOP an opportunity to exploit a great political issue by embracing reform. Yet neither the prospect of several Republicans going to prison nor the disastrous loss of the 2006 election has weakened the partys embrace of the earmark model they ran from while holding the majority
With 32,000 earmark requests floating through Congress, Republicans may want to heed Novaks words, even if he is a weirdo.
Two words for Novak's lust for Ron Paul: wild shrimp
“However, Novak offered his own personal endorsement of Texas congressman Ron Paul. Hes a very engaging person Id like to see him as president, Novak said. Can you imagine him at the United Nations?
That’s not an endorsement. Novak sees the entertainment value in Paul. Novak is, as all these columnists are, basically an entertainer.
As do many of us. And his supporters are even more entertaining.
Or maybe I should say big joke...
“VOTE FOR RON PAUL YOU STUPID INFIDELS!”
Can you imagine him at the United Nations?
Ron Paul may indeed be a candidate for the Presidency of the Lunatic Fringe association but I would elect the man in a heartbeat if I truly believed that he could get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US.

Founded in 1943 by Paul Nitze and Christian Herter, SAIS has been a division of The Johns Hopkins University since 1950.
Can you imagine him at the United Nations?
I’d never vote for Paul, but it would be hilarious to see him nominated as U.N. Ambassador.
I found the writer to sound so immature it was hard to get the the lambast Novak part. “Weirdo” ... one may or may not be enchanged with Novak, but he’s been around a long time and is hardly a ‘weirdo. It’s not a word I’d use to describe anyone if *I* wanted to be taken seriously. Who IS Sheehan? And why does his opinion count?
Well, he got that part right. Hopefully he won't pick Judd Gregg as his runningmate. ;^)
WHAT ABOUT HAGEL RETIRING?
Odd how they all choose to overlook Ron Paul's $400 million in ear marks
