I just watched "Real Time with Bill Maher" as the panel was discussing the current GOP line-up. Bill started through the list, saving Ron for last, and had to interject the statement...
"...and then there's Ron Paul. You know I love Ron Paul. He's like the coach on 'Cheers'. You know he's a little crazy, but every once in a while he says something true..."
Then Cornel West interrupted with "but Ron Paul has some truths. He stumbles on some truths..." and then goes into at least four points where he backs Ron on his view of America as a declining empire, etc, etc. And there was an Aussie author sitting next to him with his head bobbing up and down in agreement with Bill also agreeing, especially regarding Ron's pointing at America as an over-reaching empire.
Bit by bit, folks, they are alllllllll coming around...;-)
