Wonkette went all the way to Texas to report:

To most American political fanatics, Ron Paul is just a goofy hobbit whose hilariously doomed online presidential campaign provided standout entertainment in a year that offered a wealth of hilariously doomed campaigns.

But to many of his constituents in Texas Congressional District 14, Ron Paul is just a blame-America-first attention whore who completely ignores the people who put him in office. There are no Democrats running in the 14th District primary next Tuesday — so if Ron Paul loses, he will have the honor of being a double loser in the eyes of his beloved constituents. With this in mind, Wonkette enthusiastically endorses Chris Peden for Congress.

To be sure, I'd probably be happier if more congressmen busied themselves proposing no-hope bills to make a point. But when your congressman is the only one doing it, while all the other representatives focus on piling up the pork, you probably begin to wonder if you aren't missing the main chance.
