Why Ron Paul Again?

In the following enlightening article I get the sense that Ron Paul is being used, wittingly or not, to lump together all kinds of "wacky" political strains into one candidate so as to efficiently be able to dismiss all of those supporters' positions when it comes time to selecting which corporate candidate will sully the oval office. Of course the pubescent student scholars for truth think this was a great write-up, and Reprecensor's 911Blogger is only too happy to publish the link... So let me get this straight--he pretends to believe in the Islamofascist myth to keep himself electable but the journalists he expresses this view to say categorically that he is NOT going to be the next president. Hmmm... So it's about the message. The message of... even libertarians are afraid of Islamofascists...

"Last winter at a meet-the-candidate house party in New Hampshire, students representing a group called Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth asked Paul whether he believed the official investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks was credible. “I never automatically trust anything the government does when they do an investigation,” Paul replied, “because too often I think there’s an area that the government covered up, whether it’s the Kennedy assassination or whatever.” The exchange was videotaped and ricocheted around the Internet for a while. But Paul’s patience with the “Truthers,” as they call themselves, does not make him one himself. “Even at the time it happened, I believe the information was fairly clear that Al Qaeda was involved,” he told me."
