Ron Paul sage

The Republican debates have isolated Ron Paul as the sage in Republican politics - who would have thought? While he is someone that I would ordinarily never think twice about voting for - but if I were a Republican he would be at the top of my list. He is consistent and articulate in his anti-war and protection of civil liberty views.

And the debates continue to expose the buffoons. E.g., Rick Santorum exposes his ignorance (I am being kind) by not being aware that Africa is a continent and not a country. This is a person who wants to be president and he has little knowledge of the world's geography.

And Russia Today is quick to point out that "Santorum isn’t the only candidate to err on Africa as of late. Last week Herman Cain insisted that the Taliban has a strong foothold in the new Libyan government, and at a debate earlier this year, Michele Bachmann goofed that she didn’t even know that Libya was in Africa."
