Satire writer Nick Fun expressed regret at writing this derogatory headline about Ron Paul today at a press conference in his office just north of Los Angeles.
"I am a Ron Paul supporter", Fun claimed. "I don't want anything I write to be misinterpreted or taken out of context. I hope no one takes the headline above seriously. I'll bet Ron Paul doesn't even know Britney or Paris. I would like to apologize to his wife in advance for any anguish the headline caused".
Many Ron Paul supporters, who are also 1st Amendment advocates, expressed outrage at Fun's headline and disregard for the Libertarian ideals of Ron Paul.
Fun revealed that the reason he wrote the headline was for simple publicity and "points". The particular publication which published the headline does not pay in cash but rewards the writers in meaningless points and a chance to be among the "top 20 writers". Many writers hope that some famous person will view their work and offer them huge writing contracts for major motion pictures or book deals.
"I don't have any such whimsical notions", Fun said. "I'm just trying to make people laugh a little. Give them a small amount of joy. A break from the tedium of reality. An escape from ennui. Is my headline really so wrong? If so, please do not read this story".
Fun has written such stories as "Ron Paul has sex with woman" and "Ron Paul in Men's room scandal".
"Those stories, if you read them, are not so much a poke at Ron Paul as they are about the hypocrisy of the Republican Party. Ron Paul actually idealizes what the Republican once stood for; smaller government, less taxation, more freedom etc. However, he also believes in legalized marijuana, prostitution and ending the Iraq war. All good things".
Fun did say that he has no regrets about slamming Britney Spears or Paris Hilton.
