Crackpots one and all

Well, ten days out from the Iowa Caucuses -- and it appears the biggest crank of all may very well get the most support.

This is very, very good news for Democrats, but better news for Mitt Romney.

I know it seemed hard to believe a couple weeks ago, but eventually even people supporting Newt Gingrich have a tendency to remember they are supporting Newt Gingrich when push comes to shove.

Sadly, though, supporting an inveterate crackpot and racist is their fallback position.

Paul is not up by that much though, and though I've predicted he'll win, I wouldn't be surprised if, at the end of the day, Romney's money pulls this one out.

A crank, yeah, but I'll give him credit for raising some issues that nobody else of either party dares to---

1) Trimming military budget and fewer stupid wars

2) Ending the war on drugs

3) Abolishing the US Fed...though of course I don't agree with returning to the gold standard.
