Pinups for Paul

Its become obvious to everyone that the only way that Ron Paul is going to get nominated for the GOP candidate is for is either for McCain and Huckabee to meet some unlikely end or for him to beat both of them in a steel cage match to the death. However over the course of Ron Paul's campaign I came to appreciate his followers fervor to financially support their candidate and the many ingenious ways they came up with to support and promote him. The latest example of that is the calender Hotties for Ron Paul (which is nearly sold out). Below is Miss February:
" I like liberty, long walks on the beach, kittens, the constitution, and elderly free market economic policy wonks."

Additionally I appreciate the fact that Ron Paul and supporters generated a large scale discussion about many core libertarian ideals. I believe that the GOP has strayed from many of the principles it once held in common with The Libertarian party and Ron Paul's campaign did an excellent job of pointing that out and showing how many people still believe in those principles. Ultimately I hope that Paul's supporters stay politically engaged after Ron Paul drops out. Otherwise the GOP isn't going to change until the coalition of Money, Bombs, and Jesus fail to elect a president for four or five elections in a row and I just don't see that happening anytime soon.

Hey, while we're on the subject of pinup calenders check out this clever bit of niche marketing.
