Paul: And Let Dull Failure Be My Vestiture

I must have missed this yesterday, but Ron Paul has been excluded from the Fox News debate to take place the weekend before the New Hampshire primary. It’s about time. Of course, he’s not going down quietly:

“They are scared of me and don’t want my message to get out, but it will,” Paul said in an interview at a diner here. “They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative.”Paul’s staff said they are beginning to plan a rally that will take place at the same time the 90-minute debate will air on television. It will be taped at Saint Anselm College in Goffstown.

“They will not win this skirmish,” he promised.

Heh.

Related: The Washington Post is running a series of voter profiles each Sunday during the primaries. Today was the first one. I haven’t been able to find it in the web version, but the print edition has, just underneath the voter profile, examples of the “Typical Iowa Voter” with mini-bios of one Republican and one Democrat.

Their Republican example, one Jim Thalacker, is planing to vote for Ron Paul.

UPDATE: LGF has a link to an article claiming that this story isn’t true. The Fox debate has been canceled for three weeks. If that’s the case, I wonder what Paul was talking about when he was quoted above, or if he was quoted accurately.
