The only interesting Republican

Tucker Carlson nails Ron Paul in the New Republic:
Ron Paul is deeply square, and every bit as deeply committed to your right not to be. "I don't gamble, but I'm the gambler's best friend," he says, boasting of his support for online casinos. He is a Second Amendment absolutist who doesn't own a gun.
Carlson also shows up at a Ron Paul press conference in Nevada with Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, and two of his, um, tenants, Brooke and Air Force Amy.
The other, actual journalists looked confused. Dennis is built like a linebacker and was dressed entirely in black. Brooke and Air Force Amy looked like hookers because they are. All three slapped on Ron Paul stickers ("we could use these as pasties," Air Force Amy said, giggling) and sat near the front. Pretty soon, Paul showed up and did his 15 minutes on liberty and Austrian economics. If he noticed there were prostitutes present, he didn't show it.
Read the whole thing. Campaign coverage hasn't been this funny since, well, 1972.
