Gas Up the Blimp!

A humor-starved nation welcomes Congressman Ron Paul (R, TX-14) into the 2012 presidential race. His strong constituency of unmedicated mental patients, climate change deniers, potheads, gun nuts, gold bugs, teenie boppers, survivalists and anarchists makes him a Tea Party shoo-in. We can’t wait for the new blimp.
