A Real Media Piece on Ron Paul

Here's the first major media piece on Ron Paul that I've personally run across, in the New York Times. If I didn't like the guy before, here's a quote that seals the deal for me:

During a May debate in South Carolina, he suggested the 9/11 attacks could be attributed to United States policy. “Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us?” he asked, referring to one of Osama bin Laden’s communiqu├ęs. “They attack us because we’ve been over there. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years.”

Anyone who takes a letter from Osama bin Laden and uses it to formulate policy should hold no office, let alone President. The fact that he was once Libertarian candidate for President doesn't surprise me, and is just as nauseating.

It's a good thing the guy has no chance of winning.
