“We have always been at war with Oceania, and we have always loved Ron Paul.”

Fox News:

Showing the wide diversity of opinion, Paul gave a staunchly libertarian answer to nearly every question from the economy to foreign affairs…

Yes, Fox News is now highlighting the diversity of opinion within the Republican Party as a highlight. Not quite the same meme they had going four years ago, is it? Meanwhile, their online commentator assigns Paul the second-highest bond rating available on the evening, and ratifies the obvious:

A note to the Republican establishment: Ron Paul isnít going away anytime soon.

Fox News: ever the champion of the underdog, delivering hard truths to the Republican establishment.

The bottom line is this: the Republican party’s media organ has gone from treating Ron Paul as an embarrassing nuisance to treating him and his supporters as a sign of party health and as a constituency to be appeased.

The man moved the needle. That’s incredibly hard to do in American politics.
