The media, and crossover voters picked McCain on purpose. He was the easiest to beat matched up to zero.
Now they are trying again, only this time, since the tea-party movement can't be stopped and all attempts to discredit it have failed, they need someone they can easily demonize to attach to it. Paul's supporters can say what they will, but the FACT is that Paul has already been successfully portrayed as a nut by the media, and true or not, many people (voters) believe it. The media thinks if it can build up Paul somewhat, just like they did with McCain, they can once again pick our candidate to ensure another term for zero.
It will start out the same way, fawning puff-pieces from the usual suspects like nyt, lat, favorable polls, etc., all the while knowing full well that if they can get him on the ticket they can then turn on him with the buckets of slime they've been planning to throw all along. They then will be able to successfully attach the stigma of crazy to the tea-party movement via the proxy of Ron Paul. Is Paul as dumb as McCain to not see and realize this? Maybe, and if he is, you can count on an Obama win in 2012.

Hey, we don't need the enemedia to attach the Ron Paul stigma to the TEA Party movement. Freedom Works and Dick Armey have already done that.
Picture it ... tens of thousands of TEA Party patriots on the grounds of the Washington monument April 15, 2010 around 8:45 PM. The final main speaker is none other than Ron Paul. Blaring across the grounds we hear words like imperialist nation ... two bad wars ... bring the troops home from foreign nations.
No, it is not a dream. I was there and heard it with my own two ears and let out more than one resounding BOO! It was so loud one of Paul's nuts came out into the crowd looking for the person booing.
Ron Paul for ........... dogcatcher? OH HELL NO!!!
