Ron Paul's campaign consultants could not have done better. Redstate.com, a tiny and insignificant political blog, recently banned most Ron Paul supporters from so much as mentioning Mr. Paul on its website.
Redstate's editor, Erick Erickson (that is his real name; his parents had no comment), said that he had no choice in the matter, because the decision to ban Ron Paul came directly from God himself.
"I was making toast that morning, and there in the swirly butter were the words 'Ban Ron Paul', along with a picture of Jesus." He said. He added that the toast would be up for auction on Ebay sometime next week.
God is apparently a Ron Paul supporter, and his mysterious ways are evident in this particular instance. Although Redstate.com is only read by a few weird people, the banning has resulted in a media bonanza for the Paul campaign. Stories have appeared in virtually every major newspaper and television network across the country regarding the Redstate decision, including CBS, MSNBC, and the New York Times, just to name a few.
Encouraged by all the free media, sources inside the Paul campaign tell The Spoof that they are working behind the scenes to convince CNN to officially blacklist Mr. Paul.
