Hail to the Meme: Meet Ron [Paul] Swanson

http://ronpaulswanson.tumblr.com/

A few weeks ago we said goodbye to Ron Paul as an official candidate for the Republican ticket. As a farewell, we’ve decided to showcase this delightful tumblr, ‘Ron [Paul] Swanson.’ Pairing a real-life libertarian and our favorite fictional libertarian, this is one of the funniest political tumblrs we’ve seen in a while.

The blog merges photos of Paul with quotes by Ron Swanson, a character on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. On the show, Swanson is the director of the parks and recreation department in Pawnee, Indiana. He’s known for his manly demeanor and deadpan delivery, and is a fanatical believer in small government. In fact, he doesn’t even think his department should exist at all. His extreme statements turn out to be oddly compatible with Ron Paul’s campaign photos. There’s definitely more going on here than just a little convenient name association…
