Ron Paul quits race

Ron Paul dirigible

So now we bid Ronulans a fond farewell. From their perplexing conspiracy theories to their bizarre embrace of 19’th century monetary policy, Paul’s supporters ran one of the most interesting political sideshows in a century. But it’s time for Ron Paul to board his dirigible and sail into the sunset.

Indeed, what I found most charming was the huge enthusiasm coupled with startling political naiveity that characterized many of his libertarian geek devotees.
