Here is a cool little opportunity for us to vote Dr. Paul for what he should no doubt be.
The question is, "Should Dr. Ron Paul be TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year?"
I doubt it is very scientific but another great way to be heard. Great place to leave comments as well via facebook.
Twilight descends in new Hampshire as an old man climbs onto his soapbox. LIBERTY: TOO BIG TO FAIL reads a banner hanging in the jam-packed tent. He is hardly a commanding figure, but a thousand people chant his name and lean in to listen, ready to follow, as Ron Paul delivers his genre-bending stump speech. There are no focus-grouped slogans, no empty calories: Paul's talk is more like a high-fiber graduate seminar on economic theory, forgotten history and the nooks and crannies of the U.S. Constitution. "The Federal Reserve system and all their members have been counterfeiters for a long time,"...
Texas Congressman Ron Paul is running within two points of Barack Obama in this week’s Gallup poll. In a Rasmussen survey, he trails by one. He’s rising against his primary rivals and raking in money, netting $1.8 million in a trademark “money bomb” over the weekend to mark his 76th birthday. And yet, as I write in a story for this week’s magazine, his candidacy isn’t earning plaudits from the pundit class, whose virtual coverage blackout of Paul’s second-place finish in Ames prompted Jon Stewart to wonder why the media was treating Paul’s campaign like “the 13th floor of a hotel.”
Excuse me, but this guy Joel Stein is a bona fide idiot. What strikes me about his "analysis" is that it is all about appearances.
This is my impression of Joel Stein (use your best stoner voice when you read this): "Oh, man -- dude -- I can't figure this out! Cuz he, like, talks about all this stuff, man! I don't get it...But he's like - you know, like the guy from Network, who's gonna tell Washington to go screw itself. It's pretty freaky."
Stein says Dr. Paul is a "horrible speaker...He's like the professor, like, you know he's smart, his book was supposedly really good, but you're not going to stay awake the whole class."
Excuse me? That says much more about Stein than about Ron Paul! Like that he was a college flunky who somehow got by snoozing through class without learning anything. And this guy works for Time?
Sign of the times, my friends. Sign of the times.
He goes on to say that Ron Paul supporters aren't like Dean followers because we're "nerdy," while the Dean follwers were a "good looking group. They're like little Kennedy kind of, you know, JFK kind of followers."
And Tucker...Et tu, Tucker?
