He makes some good points, which is why it is so depressing that he leads with the guilt-by-association charge. Really. Meanwhile, the Paul campaign is expanding in Florida. Here's a fun profile of his online money guru:

Trevor Lyman is unshaven, wearing a T-shirt and jeans and sitting at the dining table of his rented home. Scattered around him are a one-pound bag of M&Ms, liter-size bottles of soda and a box of Frosted Flakes -- the cereal accounts for his recommended daily allowance of vitamins...

Lyman and his housemates have never met Paul, although the candidate has called Lyman to thank him for his efforts. On CBS' "Face the Nation," Paul pronounced his name "Clymon." "We don't know a whole heck of a lot about him," Paul communications director Jesse Benton said of Lyman.

Just compare that to, say, the Clinton or Romney campaigns. Could they even begin to get the kind of spontaneous support? Oh, and the blimp. Did I mention the blimp? I love this country.
