Ron Paul

The Devil and Dr. Paul


I spotted Ron Paul before his speech to the Family Research Council on Friday, intending to ask him some fairly bland questions about the religious right and James Dobson's third party ruminating. (For the record, Paul thinks it's good and fair for the self-identified religious right to get into politics, and he would not run as a Dobsonite spoiler candidate.) A few people were right ahead of me, so I let them ask their questions and turned on my camera. The result: Three encounters that even the harshest Paul critic would agree make the man look like a statesman beset by crazy people. (First questioner Max Blumenthal isn't crazy, just asking a weird question to get Paul's response.)
