Ron Paul's $4.2 Million Haul


Whoa! I don't know what's more amazing — the sum total. Or the fact that this Republican fund-raising surge is all somehow in honor of terrorist, er, anarchist, er, V-For-Vendetta antihero Guy Fawkes.

Whatever you make of Paul, he and his supporters just pulled off, organically, through weird YouTube videos like this one...

... something we haven't seen since Howard Dean.

Money that pulls in money. It's like cold fusion for campaign finance. The question: Can this reaction sustain itself for more than a day?

UPDATE: For the members of the Paul Patrol who feel I've wronged your candidate, I've created an open thread wherein you can preach his virtues. Keep it positive, people.
