RP tops himself

The morning after Ron Paul raises over six million dollars, more money in one day than any other candidate in history, the top political headline is Joe Lieberman's endorsement of John McCain.  These days, how can a principled politician and relative outsider raising tons of money for a presidential run not be big news?  It's got to be bigger than one political has-been endorsing another.

58,000 people contributed to the campaign yesterday, 24,940 for the first time, and the median donation was only $50.  Maybe the values of liberty are finally becoming mainstream again!

UPDATE:  Ron Paul was the most-searched-for Republican presidential candidate in all of 2007 on Yahoo!, and the most-searched-for candidate of either party in the last thirty days.  Awesome.

Hooray for the turning of the political tide! Maybe someday the media will catch up.
