It's about 8 o'clock on Saturday night, and Murphy's Taproom is going nuts with flash bulbs and cheering. The guy dressed as Santa Claus, a Staten Island limo driver named Lou Barrett, is trying to tell me about his new Meetup group, "Reindeer for Ron Paul," but the din of about a hundred soused Paul fans traps the words in his fake white beard.

NJ Assemblyman Michael Doherty endorsed Ron Paul at today's rally, accompanied with chants to "throw out Governor Corzine" emanating from the crowd.

See the restaurant hours here.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's article on the Texas Straw Poll... is predominantly about Ron Paul!
Grasping at straws?
Speeches, protests and presidential politics, Texas style.
That's what will be going on in and around the Fort Worth Convention Center on Friday and Saturday, during the Republican Party of Texas' first-ever GOP Straw Poll. Who is coming? What are they saying? What are they doing?
U.S. Congressman and Republican candidate for President Dr. Ron Paul accepts Honorary Life Membership in Pro-Gun New Hampshire at a grassroots gun rights meeting organized by PGNH Executive Vice President Evan Nappen on August 18, 2007 in Concord. Forty gun rights activists from across the state heard Dr. Paul speak passionately about his support of the Second Amendment. Four of the five PGNH directors attended the meeting, and they unanimously voted to grant Dr. Paul the honorary membership.
