Ron Paul's Legions
I got a chuckle out of this story
Ron Paul says the legions of newcomers his presidential campaign brought to the Republican Party are getting the cold shoulder from John McCain and from the party.
Paul typically grabbed about 4-5% of the vote with his antiwar, anti-Federal Reserve stance. It's hard to see the overlap with McCain. The Ronulans should like his pork-busting efforts.
The Texas congressman says neither he nor his supporters have heard from Mr. McCain or Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan since March 4, when the Arizona senator accumulated enough delegates to clinch the party's presidential nomination.
Well, Mitt Romney didn't wait by the phone; he went out and announced that he was willing to take the second slot on the ticket. Has Paul conceded? As far as I recall, he only suspended his race when he went back to secure his congressional seat. Is he officially out? Nope:
Mr. McCain hasn't approached Mr. Paul's voters because Mr. Paul has not called to say he is ending his run, says McCain campaign senior adviser Charles Black.
Cart before the horse, there, gentlemen!
