Weird fundrasing appeal on "Onward"

Ron Paul really needs to start supervising his ghost writers more carefully. His latest fundraising appeal is replete with typos and poor grammar. And as if that weren't enough, it goes on to make unsubstantiated suggestions of vote fraud!

  • "chained down y [sic] the Constitution"
  • "the media toadies, warmongers, and Wall Street rip-off artists who stand against us, and who always remind me of Tolkein's [sic] Orcs."
  • "Even vote fraud is not beyond these people."

If he keeps going like this, his campaign will take itself down; no need to wait for the "media toadies" to do it.

UPDATE: The letter seems to be getting a favorable reception over at Ron Paul Forums:
  • "Awesome letter."
  • "What a great message."
  • (regarding the vote fraud) "ain't that the truth."
  • "wow. Perfect. go ron go!"

Indeed, when one poster raised essentially the points I mentioned above, the next three comments were:

  • "^^^ Ban ^^^"
  • "SIEG HEIL, the grammar Nazi's [sic] are among us!! Seriously, just plug your mouth with the feces that just came out of it."
  • "If all your [sic] concerned about is grammar and the superficiality of your own sense of "professionalism" perhaps the cause of liberty is not for you."

I wish I could believe the opposition hired these guys to infiltrate the forums.
