Tonight's Debate

I watched for about 5 minutes. But Andrew Sullivan watched the whole thing and writes:
Paul was great and funny and human.
Actually, what has always struck me about Ron Paul's debate performances is how he seems to be sitting on a different stage, at a different point in time, as though he were superimposed with Photoshop or generated by Pixar's computers. He seldom interacts with the other candidates. He's as funny as Dennis Miller, which is to say, someone who has a completely undeserved reputation for being funny. He has a lot of young fans who find his political philosophy, unique for a mainstream politician, inspiring. But for me, his arguments for personal freedom and responsibility are as inspiring as a monologue heard at an open mic night in a comedy club.
