Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential - Ron Paul

From Time Magazine's list of the 100 Most Influential people of 2008:

PRO: With his antiwar, antitax platform, the Texan became an unexpected Internet phenom, using the Web to raise as much as $6 million a day. And now that we think about it, we probably should have taken his advice about gold.

CON: For all his fundraising acumen, the media never saw Paul as anything more than a fringe player.

I'm kinda wondering what they have to say about their own bearing on the "con." Regardless, I've been a fan for years. Too bad he's not the POTUS right now. He'd keep it simple by reading the Constitution and acting accordingly. For instance, there'd be no uproar over the AIG bonuses because there'd be no bailouts!
