In 2004 there was a fringe candidate who fired up the grass roots. His name was Howard Dean. His followers were called Deaniacs.
Now, in 2008, there’s a movement to the right of center. 2% of the Republican base are all fired up about him. It’s Ron Paul. RON PAUL! Dominating online polls left and right. RON PAUL!
So, we need a name for the Ron Paul effete. Not Paulists. Not PaulPourri, although it’s very cute. Let’s stick with the basics and call them the Paulunatics. Or the Pauloonies.
If you want someone with good, solid conservative values without the fudnamentalist slant of a Huckabee or a “really?” plug of a Mitt Romney, go Duncan Hunter.
