Civility: Ron Paul Storms Out of Interview With "CNN Media Whore"

The aptly named YouTube user RonPaul2012Truth was kind enough to upload and caption the video of his favorite candidate running away from a CNN interviewer ("Ron Paul Walks Out On Interview With CNN Media Whore").

Apparently, Paul will no longer entertain questions about his newsletters -- edited and published by Paul, according to the masthead -- that market a vicious, throwback form of racism, antisemitism and anti-government conspiracy theories.

Of course, the entire Paul phenomenon in Iowa is built on smoke and mirrors, as ABC News discovered.

...just 37 percent of Republican and Republican leaning independents nationally think Paul has the kind of personality and temperament to serve effectively as president and just 42 percent of Republicans think he would pursue policies that most Americans would find acceptable.

ABC News polling also finds that in a potential matchup, President Obama holds a significant lead over Paul.

...political observers say that Paul’s support is built in large part with the support of non-Republicans.

In other words, the Republican Primary process in Iowa will be polluted -- once again -- with non-Republican voters.

And rather than close the primary (as many other states do), the hapless GOP lets this inane process occur election cycle after election cycle. Which is why kooks like Ron Paul get to crow about how close they are to winning the Iowa Primary.

Because in the real world of Constitutional Conservatism that is beginning to take over the Republican Party, Ron Paul is a fringe nobody wearing an ill-fitting suit.

Yep, if you think foreign policy was a mess under Bush, then Obama ... Paul would be the coup de grace for any ideals of American Exceptionalism surviving abroad.
