A Pair of Amusing (and Accurate) Assessments of Ron Paul Supporters

Both coming from Joel Stein:

Representative Tom Tancredo, another long-shot GOP candidate, tells me that after a debate in New Hampshire, one of his staffers walked up to a guy in a shark costume and asked him if he was a Ron Paul supporter. "No. They're all nuts," replied the shark. "I'm just a guy in a shark suit." ...

"His supporters are the equivalent of crabgrass," says GOP consultant Frank Luntz. "It's not the grass you want, and it spreads faster than the real stuff. They just like him because he's the most anti-Establishment of all the candidates, the most likely to look at the camera during the debates and say, 'Hey, Washington, f____ you.'"

I don't know if the Tancredo story is a joke or if it really happened, and judging by how goddamn hilarious Tancredo usually is I'm going to go with actually happened.
