Nevada Brothel Backs Ron Paul

Amusing:

LYON Co., Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) – They say politics creates strange bedfellows. Well try this one: the workers of the famous HBO spotlighted Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel are endorsing Ron Paul for president – mostly because he’s for states’ rights.

“That’s why the bunny ranch exists. Who knows better of how to govern a community than the community,” Owner Dennis Hof said.

The women are also impressed he’s a doctor.

“He knows what women’s wants and women’s needs are. And when it comes to a man that’s going to be in the office, you want a man that knows his way around a woman,” Worker Ara Rose said.

The brothel is doing more than just endorsing; they’re also fundraising for the Paul campaign by asking patrons for donations on their way out.

“The bunnies are always talking about politics. They are into their country and they vote,” Hof said.

And they say their support will carry a lot of weight with more than 125 million hits on their web site every month.

    I wonder how many Bunny Ranch patrons will rise to the occasion?

    Wonder how much of those donations will make their way to Ron Paul’s actual campaign. (My guess? None.) Would he accept them? (My guess? No.)

    This could raise the question about whether the saying “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” is true.

    I think accepting the endorsement and donations from the Bunny Honeys would be more in line with the Paul campaign’s Make RonLuv Not War platform than this:

    “We welcome Rev. Kayser’s endorsement and the enlightening statements he makes on how Ron Paul’s approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs.  We’re thankful for the thoughtfulness with which he makes his endorsement and hope his endorsement and others like it make a strong top-three showing in the caucus more likely,” said Ron Paul 2012 Iowa Chairman Drew Ivers.

    Reached by phone, Kayser confirmed to TPM that he believed in reinstating Biblical punishments for homosexuals — including the death penalty…
