Disgusting: Ron Paul attacks murder victim, war hero Chris Kyle; Updated
We know former Rep. Ron Paul has some wacky ideas about national defense and foreign policy, but this is truly beyond the pale even for him.
@ronpaul So all veterans, once done serving our nation with honor, deserve to be murdered as civilians? Wow.

Buzzfeed confirms that Ron Paul runs his own Twitter feed:
Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul has been attracting negative attention all day for a tweet he sent Monday morning regarding the death of former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle at the hands of an Iraq War veteran. But get used to off-the-cuff Twitter activity from the former presidential candidate: Paul, 77, is now running his own Twitter feed, a spokesperson says.
“He runs it,” said Campaign for Liberty communications director Megan Stiles, who is handling Paul’s press requests since he retired. She clarified that Paul started handling his own tweets “since he left office.”
