Ron Paul Update

Ron Paul made an appearance on Bill Maher's dreadful program the other night. He may be the only human being to the right of Mao Tse Tung to be treated with respect and dignity by the unctuous and unlikeable Mr. Maher.

They spoke on a number of topics related to the bailouts and stimulus and whatnot. Nothing really stood out -- except that everything stood out. This wasn't a politician pandering to his core constituency. My guess is that the core constituency of the Maher show mostly wears Che T-shirts and votes Green Party.

No, this was a man of principle, speaking from principle, never deviating from his principles. Watch the video or read the transcript, and see what principle looks like. You certainly won't see it following the garden variety politician around.
