I sent you an e-mail a while ago about the fact that Ron Paul supporters had a table and banners set up at the San Francisco Gun Show – the only politician to do so.

I just got back from a month of fishing in rural Idaho and Montana and I lost count of the number of Ron Paul signs that I saw in yards and in cars. I’d guess I saw 20 or 25 in all. I did not see a single sign for any other current presidential candidate, but did see many, many old Bush/Cheney bumper stickers.

He is clearly reaching some people.

Just for the record, I guess. Sometimes, I think blog readers have as much of a handle on what's actually going on out there than most journalists. And wow: who wouldn't want to have a life where you can go on a month of fishing in rural Idaho and Montana!
