"Paul is not going to be the Republican nominee for president, and he knows it." You hear this all the freaking time about Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul. And I have to ask myself why? What are they actually saying?
It seems to me that these arrogant bastards are saying "I'm smart" because I say that Ron Paul will not be nominated and anyone who thinks he will is a moron. And that may be a part of the reason.
But there's more to it than that. It's like there's a script or something. I doubt there's an actual script. It's probably more like - someone liked the way another guy said something - and they repeat it ad nauseum.
My question, then, is: Are they trying to sound knowledgeable or are they trying to convince you of something?
