Why is Everyone Still Ignoring Ron Paul?

______________________

I want to recommend to everyone for immediate viewing what I consider to be one of the most brilliant pieces of political satire ever done in the TV medium: Jon Stewart's "Why is Everyone Still Ignoring Ron Paul?"   I laughed uncontrollably as Stewart deliciously skewered the mass media for their ridiculous pretense that Paul, who nearly won the Iowa straw poll, coming within less than 200 votes of winner Bachmann, is not even in the race.  

Paul, should he stay within striking distance of the top, would be the only viable candidate who is not a cookie-cutter promoter of the domestic and foreign policy status quo.  In a field of the usual white bread Protestant/Mormon non-entities, Paul at least speaks from the heart.  The very fact that his voice reached a high-pitched indignant whine during the first debate endears him to me.  He was not even trying to appear "presidential," like the robots on either side of him, but rather to speak with real human emotion about the fiscal and foreign policy madness that grips both parties.  With all his liberal flaws, in a field consisting entirely of liberals of one sort or another---as always in America---Paul would have to be an improvement over the status quo worth voting for.  Which is why the media are desperately avoiding any mention of his name and second-place position lest a bandwagon get rolling.  Watch and enjoy: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2011/08/jon-stewart-ron-paul/41311/
