Ron Paul made a campaign video that borders on self-parody, and if you haven't seen it, do yourself the favor of watching it immediately. Keep in mind when you do that the budget cuts Paul is touting will come in part from eliminating the EPA (in addition to basically every other damn thing). Then watch Conan O'Brien's parody of it, above. Honestly, what’s crazier in the long run -- killing the EPA or issuing every citizen a rusty pipe? YOU MAKE THE CALL but it’s not the pipe.
