Disappearing Ron Paul ctd

Steve Kornacki argues the lack of Ron Paul coverage after he nearly tied for first place with Bachmann (the Queen of Rage) in the Ames straw poll doesn’t mean he is being ignored. He simply doesn’t deserve any more coverage, yet:

…[Ron Paul] didn’t really have much to prove. Why? Because the political world already knows that Paul has an army of unusually loyal and dedicated supporters who are willing to show up in large numbers at events like the straw poll and producing impressive-seeming vote totals for their candidate. They’ve been doing this for years now. Remember when Paul won the straw poll at the 2010 CPAC conference? Or in 2011? His supporters are very good at this kind of thing, channeling their unique passion into “money bombs,” Internet poll victories, and strong performances at straw polls and other events where a devoted minority can have an outsize influence.

Unless it turns out Paul is indeed the Antichrist, then he should be heavily covered by the media.
