Ron Paul is the new Six Million Dollar Man, but to the media he's like the homely girl standing against the wall at the high school dance. Imagine if Giuliani or Clinton did something like this. Besides the fact that donations would be from a far fewer number of rich supporters, and that the donations would be thousands of dollars per person higher than Ron Paul's average donation receipt, the media would be slobbering all over themselves to report the accomplishment of the impossible.
It is the most raised EVER by any presidential candidate in one day, but the media are virtually ignoring it, many sites begrudgingly running the same bland Associated Press stories. What are they saying about Ron Paul's amazing feat, where
- 55,000 people donated
- 25,000 people donated for the first time ever to the Ron Paul campaign
- The average donation was $102
- The median donation was about $50?
They're saying that Ron Paul will stay in the race until February 5th, giving the impression that he'll drop out thereafter. With all this money and support? You have got to be on drugs!
They're saying that he lags in opinion polls. Well, duh! It's easy to skew the results with carefully crafted "opinion polls" that surgically determine poll respondents. Try asking people who didn't vote Republican in the last election.
C'mon media. This is monumental! Ron Paul just raised SIX MILLION DOLLARS IN ONE DAY. Admit it. Ron Paul is not only a viable, but a formidable candidate. You should treat him like one. Are you really impartial? You're not showing it.
But your vision of the anointed is about to come crashing to the ground. Because more and more people are finding out--with nearly no thanks to you--who this Ron Paul guy really is. And the more they find out, the more they find out
"We have the technology. We can rebuild [it]"--the United States of America. And the Six Million Dollar Man is the right man to take the helm of the ship of state.
"Damn the torpedoes [from the media], full speed ahead!"
