unexpected ron paul nostalgia

ron paul has been running for president as long as i've been voting for president. i remember in 1988, the first election for which i was eligible to vote, a friend made a serious pitch to get me to vote for paul. the friend sent me some pamphlet that said "the lesser of two evils is still evil". i still think that's a really great slogan for a third party candidate.

anyway, paul didn't stand a chance then and he doesn't stand a chance now. but this may be his last presidential campaign. next time we're probably going to have to settle for his son, who unlike the elder paul, seems to have no problem selling out to mainstream wingnuttia.
