I’ll throw him a little extra free press tonight for that answer on medical marijuana. As endearing and impressive as it is stupid: Some idiot had a dream of seeing a blimp with Ron Paul’s name on the side flying around America and darned even if he isn’t going to make it happen. According to the clip, they need $350,000; in less than a week of fundraising they’re already more than halfway there. What better way of saying “I’m a kook and I have money” than pitching in for a Paulnut dirigible?

I love how specific the fantasy gets, too. It’s not Americans looking up at the sky and muttering “amazing” at the site of a blimp. It’s not even some nameless generic news anchor. It’s Wolf Blitzer, specifically. And why not, my friends? Why not?
