Knock me down with a feather!

I am as surprised, and gratified, as Perry de Havilland that Ron Paul came second in the Nevada Republican primary.
The news from Nevada (via the LA Times) is so stunning that, well, I am stunned!

Ron Paul ran second behind Mitt Romney. What can I say? I am a life long Libertarian. I am not used to getting this close to the winners circle!

I am, however, prepared to adjust my expectations, should that become necessary.

OK, Romney got 51% and Paul got only 14%, but he beat the other candidates.

Hope for us libertarians, or just a blip?

Well no one else Republican bothered to campaign in Nevada as its not worth that many electoral votes. It will be interesting to see how he does on super Tuesday.

I am happy that Ron Paul got 14%!

Lets see if the mainstream media can keep up their "lalalalala" routine regarding Ron.
