I seem to link to Sully a lot--I really need to start reading more blogs. Anyway: this is interesting. I didn't notice any confirmation yet, but if it's true I'd have to agree: Ron Paul brings some welcome diversity of opinion into the GOP race. I agree with Paul on quite a lot, though I think he's, uh, misguided on foreign policy (I'm being polite).
Even with the money, does he have a snowball's chance? No. Nonetheless, that money will allow him to keep bringing up issues and fueling the debate quite nicely. I like that.
