Even though I can't imagine how anyone would get this in their head, RuPaul is saying he's sick of people confusing him for Ron Paul. You know, because apparently that's a thing that's happening constantly for reasons you nor I can comprehend.

And what do you do when you're a gorgeous drag queen who is being confused for a weird looking, older white politician? You campaign in a New Hampshire diner to make sure everyone knows there's a difference.

RuPaul explains:

"I'm going to N.H. on a mission to spread love and set the record straight: contrary to recent reports, I am NOT Ron Paul. And I am not running for president of the United States. I hope to meet Ron Paul in person so we can be seen together to put the rumors to rest once and for all. And to remind Mr. Paul and all the Republican presidential candidates ‘if you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love somebody else. Can I get an ‘Amen?'"


RuPaul also mentioned that while he is not a political person, "any time a man leaves the house in a wig and a pair of cha cha heels, he's making a political statement. Let us not forget that this great nation was founded by a bunch of men wearing wigs."

UPDATE: There wasn't video when this posted, but it's up now.

Also, major props for whoever is responsible for (probably) punching out this sign to make room for a different kind of candidate. Something tells me they did not confuse RuPaul with Ron Paul, they were just exercising a bit of wishful thinking. Amen.
