Quick campaign hits (from the Beach)

1.  Ron Paul comes as close as he's likely to an endorsement of Gary Johnson:
Ron Paul when asked if he would endorse Gov. Gary Johnson: "I think he's wonderful and I think he's doing a good job and people should look at him — and every individual should make up their own mind!"
2.  Gary Johnson campaign finally getting seriously hacked off at the increasingly overt nationwide attempt by the GOP to force him off the ballot. 

3.  Meanwhile, Gary Johnson is just happy that he's not a GOPer any more.

4.  More media myopia:  NPR looking at the close North Carolina race and not realizing that Libertarian Bob Barr WAS a spoiler for John McCain in 2008 (his votes nearly doubled the size of Barack Obama's win), while--even more significantly--failing to realize that Gary Johnson may actually play that role in reverse this year by taking enough votes from Obama to hand the state over to Mitt Romney.

Sure would be nice to see Gary - whom I support - bash Obama and the Democrats once in a while.

Republicans are simply "libertarian lite." Democrats are the enemy of freedom. We need to be aiming all our vitriol, hatred and outright disgust at any and all individuals who have a 'D' by their names.
