Hopefully you did a lot of research on this guy, Olson. . .he came fresh from the John "I Want To Be At War For 100 Years" McCain campaign. (Read his background: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/trygve-olson/14/431/82a)
Olson was brought to Ron Paul's camp via Jesse (oh my god when are they going to kick him OUT?!!) Benton, via Rand Paul's campaign. That's after Jesse ran in and sacked Rand's campaign chair, did a lot of spin, and settled down the masses - from Rand Paul's slippery tongue getting him into trouble.
Did everyone read this about Jesse, from 2008? http://www.dailypaul.com/26755/jesse-bentons-second-choice-i...
In case you missed it - Bruce Fein, a Ron Paul insider, is also a piece of work: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2011/08/30/the-greatest-plot...
The Ron Paul campaign announcing him: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110823006296/en
In my personal estimation, Rand Paul is an arrogant, self-aggrandizing, pompous arse. He is riding the wave of his Father while not adhering to his Father's counsel and/or following his good example. Rand exhibits a minimal amount of the awesome character Ron Paul has demonstrated for 30 years.
This is not the first time in history that a good mans son has chosen his own path: "William Franklin: The son of Benjamin Franklin, William Franklin served as Royal Governor of New Jersey during the critical years between 1762 and 1776. An ardent Loyalist, William split with his father over their political differences in the early days of the Revolution, and after enduring two years of imprisonment, became a leader in the Loyalist cause. He settled in London in 1782, where he worked as an agent for Loyalist claims."
The best thing that can happen to Rand would be to first try to get his head removed from his posterior. Secondly would be for him to be defeated in the next election. Maybe then he would shake off his haughtiness.
Aside from that - Jesse Benton is behind most of this. . .he saw opportunity (from 2008 http://www.linkedin.com/pub/trygve-olson/14/431/82a) and seized upon it. . .and made a huge mess of everything. A bunch of unseasoned, uncommitted co-opters. . .such a shame.
