I have a weakness for underdogs and libertarians and this guy fits both bills. He was the only candidate in the so called Republican debate tonight that said Iraq was a mistake and America should have a humble foreign policy and stop trying to police the world. He also brought up a document that seems to be ignored by the present administration, the constitution. He called Libby a liar and defended habeas corpus. Some of his positions like abolishing the IRS are far out but he tells you what he thinks. Check him out at Ron Paul 2008. One conservative blogger covers him better than I could: A Clear Choice for America.
On the atmospherics Mrs. G thought they all had the wrong tie and we had drinking game of taking a slug every time Saint Ronny was mentioned. Needless to say I'm sloshed.
