Ron Paul not out of the race, still looking for more book sales

Ron Paul at one time was a long shot for the Republican Presidential nomination, now he is just an asshole. I too contributed money to his campaign, and so feel I should have the right to speak my mind about his campaign now as we look back. I recall the laughter from superiors at a cocktail party when I spoke in such high regards for the honorable Doctor, however, I never thought he would stoop this goddam low. Alright, maybe I am being a bit harsh, and all he is doing is promoting his message of freedom, or continual fucking with the establishment. Whatever the case may be, it seems like Ron, a true paleo-conservative, knows not how to spend the rest of the loot he raised from his generous donors who funded his glorious run. He can't take it with him, so why not spend it on advertising his new book "The Revolution: A Manifesto" which hit stores on April 30. After all, Jesse Benton, Paul's campaign manager says even though the media says so - Paul's campaign for the presidency never ended. Well, your goddam right Jesse - as long as he has that book to sell (currently number 4 on the best amazon selling list). Ok, ok - my continued patronizing of the good doctor and his campaign has gone too far, his message is what is important, it is - it is. Well, I sure am glad Paul saved his loot for the end, so he can go out with a bang, asshole.

North Carolina and Indiana Democratic primaries are meaningless

Unlike CNN is telling you, these primaries will mean as much as Ron Paul's bid for the Presidency, nothing. Both candidates, Barack and Hillary have already stated they would continue to campaign though June. That's not to say that the votes don't matter, just the fact we will still have no clear winner for a long while.
