Why We Love Campaign Season...
It's the true marketplace of ideas. To wit: this afternoon, on our way to grab some lunch, a Ron Paul supporter, a woman in late-middle age with gray hair, was walking up and down 34th Street holding a "Paul for President" sign over her head and saying, "Vote for Paul. He'll End the War. Vote for Paul" etc. etc.
She was soon tailed by Tough New Yorker Guy, who followed her every way she went saying things (with an accent straight out of the Sopranos) like "You wanna end the war? You wanna wave the white flag? Do youse? Do youse? You'll end up in a harem! Is that what you want? To end up in a harem?"
Ahh, the public square, how we love thee
