One of The Greatest Political Publicity Stunts In HistorySubmitted by zooamerica on Wed, 05/16/2012 - 19:56
We got all worked up on Monday and Tuesday. Good to see the rEVOLution back to business. Now that the possum pixie dust has settled, let us take a step back and ask ourselves what is the ultimate result of what's transpired over the past two days?
"There's no such thing as bad publicity."
Ron Paul just got a boatload of free media exposure. Jesse Benton dangled the carrot just enough, and the old media bit like champs. They took the bait and ran with the line, BUT...
Now FOX News is saying Ron Paul is still in the race, and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow is reporting the same thing with a giant, inquisitive cute smile on her face asking Dr. Paul to come on the show.
I think Ron Paul and his campaign staff just engineered one of the greatest publicity stunts in political history.
What was accomplished?
1. The rEVOLution is now all fired up, steaming hot! Thank you, Jesse Benton for stoking the fire inside all of us! Those who jumped ship over the fact that Ron Paul didn't win a single beauty contest are now back on board. There's something major brewing with the national delegates.
2. The MSM is now telling everyone that Ron Paul is still in the race. They're even talking about the "D," word - delegates, and they're even saying Ron Paul won states like Maine, Iowa, and Nevada!
3. Mitt Romney's head is spinning.
Tic, Tac, Toe.
