Ron Paul & The World

I think straw polls at this stage are silly, but this clip by Jon Stewart on Ron Paul and The Invisible Man is worth watching.

Good job showcasing multiple media outlets ignoring Ron Paul in the Ames straw poll.
"How did libertarian Ron Paul become hotel floor 13?"

Republican friends, please notice FOX News is just as guilty of trying to shape this election by altering the republican landscape as anyone else in the media.


In other news with the Ron Paul campaign, there is a good Washington Times profile of the campaign. Gone are the eccentric fife and drum corps and angry rancorous roving bands of people have matured over the past 2 years. The Tea parties that have swept the nation, the seeds of that began to germinate with the Paul campaign in 08, and are beginning to flourish. Do not make the mistake of counting this campaign out.
He may have to run 3rd party, but there may be enough steam to force the issue and have a 3rd party candidate.
