Ron Paul Nets Millions From Web: Today's Cartoon

Not since the "Mahir" craze of 1999 has the internet been so united in its praise of a single individual.

Fortunately, in this case the person being admired is not some Turkish accordion player with bad English and worse web design skills, offering his home and bed to foreign tourists; but a virtually unknown Presidential candidate, offering his hopeful vision of the future to the United States.

Yes, the internet has definitely come a long way since the Bush Administration came into power. So much so that users are willing to shell out over $4 million in 24 hour, in an effort to help them delete the last eight years of neocon spam from their memory.

I think the fact that Ron Paul's web campaign has been able to resonate so strongly among Americans, despite the mainstream media's efforts to downplay his candidacy, just shows which of the two carries the greater message... and has the more influential "platform".
