There was a minor controversy over the last month as Ron Paul accepted a meeting with a visiting Marine Le Pen (at her request, allegedly to discuss the gold standard.) Marine Le Pen is running for President of France, as the leader of the French party, Front National.
They met for about 10 minutes on Thursday; Human Events seems to be the only one on the Right that reported it; here is the Roll Call story.
Compared to the mixed reaction, with plenty of support, Geert Wilders receives, Marine Le Pen is nevertheless, beyond the pale and apparently not worthy of mention by what passes for an American Right.
But it does appear the real concern, as the more Leftist political outlets were pulling their hairs out–see, Ron Paul is a rightwinger!—is the Rightwing Press doesn’t want that notion to be considered.
If we do a get a rightish flavored Third Party next year, it’s worth noting that after meeting with Paul, Le Pen was off to see the Occupy folks.
When Alvin Greene won the Democrat Party nomination for Senate, I suggested perhaps the word “Greene” encouraged Leftists to vote for him. I wonder if the polls that show Cain as the leader for the Republican nomination are driven by left-over nodes created for McCain?
