Ron Paul and the Fat Man


Adeptly attacking drug prohibition on The Morton Downey Jr. show in 1988 (when he ran for president on the L.P. ticket), Ron Paul shows a little more energy than he typically does nowadays. He was two decades younger then, of course, and the debating style favored by Downey (who made Bill O'Reilly look like Phil Donahue) encouraged guests to keep things lively, to say the least.
