As we can see so far, the MSM first went after Bachmann, then Perry, now Cain, while largely ignoring Paul along the way.
They already succeeded in making Paul appear to be a kook which progressed for a decade at least.... The hole Paul has to get out of is pretty entrenched and deep—they don’t worry about him much. They have been creating the “image” of Paul for decades and the perceptions are really hard to throw off. MSM is very powerful in creating perceptions....and since they lie and are communist/atheists they have a one world agenda and destroy those who dare get in the way. Paul isn’t a threat yet, Cain just might be.
