On Ron Paul

"I love the fact that none of them talk about Ron Paul. I don’t understand how a guy with consistent grass-roots support at the level he has is not a part of the conversation. I saw on the news networks, 'Rick Perry enters the race and immediately jumps in at second place, bumping Michele Bachmann down to fourth.' But they don’t mention, 'Hey, guess who’s in third place?' Ron Paul! Aren’t you going to say his name? You’re not even going to mention it? You’re just going to fucking follow Rick Santorum around as he goes into his 'Water is water, marriage is marriage. You can’t call water beer!' Nobody is fucking listening to that guy."
