The media keeps telling us there is a new top tier in the race for the Republican nomination: Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, and relative newcomer Rick Perry. It’s so nice of them to narrow the field for us six and a half months before the Iowa Caucus, declaring who is electable. What is so hard about letting an election process play itself out organically? (Or covering it honestly?) Ah yes, a lot of political corporatism, cronyism, and bureaucracy to protect.
A newly published Gallup poll shows Ron Paul is only two percentage points behind President Obama, the same gap that separates Mitt Romney from Obama. Representative Paul clearly gets a lot of traction with the American public. It is a sad commentary the media can’t get themselves to admit it.
