Ron Paul Named “Dark Horse of the Year”

I apologize in advance to the morons for the Paulbots who are about to show up here; this is still noteworthy. GQ has named Ron Paul the “Dark Horse of the Year.” Here’s their reasoning:

To witness [Republicans try to silence him] is to understand the fear Ron Paul has instilled in the GOP. He has tapped into his party’s silent minority, one that won’t abide torture, reckless spending, or endless war. And his supporters (and admittedly, there are some real conspiracy-minded moonbats among them) have rewarded Paul for his courageousness, to the tune of more than $5 million in campaign contributions in the third quarter—about the same as John McCain has raised. It isn’t a revolution, but Ron Paul’s candidacy serves as a reminder that electoral politics needn’t be a joyless march to a clothespin vote. It can be daring and kind of kooky, too.

Other winners of GQ’s “Men of the Year” are Bill Clinton and Kanye West. Charming.
