Ron Paul, age 76, lost his virginity thanks to the Virgin Islands. Paul captured the popular vote in the United States Virgin Islands Caucus by winning 112 votes over Romney’s 101. The odd caucus rules actually resulted in Romney taking 7 delegate to Paul’s 1, but at least Paul has his first win.
As go the Virgin Islands so goes the nation is not a phrase that anyone will champion soon. The people of the Virgin Islands can participate in primaries but not general elections (It ain’t a state you see). The people of the British Virgin Islands are no doubt proud that they don’t have to participate at all and likely lord that fact over their neighbors in the US Virgin Islands (the cheeky bastards).
I am sure the win, reported in the mainstream media, will greatly disappoint Ron Paul fans who prefer to lose and blame the loss on the media, the military-industrial complex, Jewish banking cartels, and the Partridge Family. But they can take heart, larger primaries are coming up soon so they will be able to return to their righteous indignation as the loses start to mount again.
