image for Doctor Hook Outraged At Ron Paul On The Cover Of The Rolling Stone Hey, Man Where's My Picture

Although not actually on the cover (yet) of the Rolling Stone Magazine Ron Paul is getting the attention of political writer Tim Dickinson. While not a supporter of Dr Paul he seems to be coming around to that conclusion.

Here are a few of his comments made recently:

I've been snarky about Ron Paul's campaign, which admittedly is a poor substitute for substance. Here's the deal. I actually admire Dr. Paul. He's got a coherent worldview and he's sticking to it.

He's hardly a tough guy - his affect is more Harry Reid than Dirty Harry - but he's by far the 2008 field's toughest and most unyielding anti-war voice. That's a public service. And his willingness to stand up to an opportunist like Giuliani in adressing the root causes of the 9/11 attacks is an object lesson for many Democrats in how to grow a pair.

Paul's defense of constitutional liberties is also deeply patriotic. I admire his clarity on our guaranteed freedoms, not the least of which is freedom from our government - habeas corpus, the 4th Amendment, etc. The heart begins to swell.

And there are times when D.C. seems such a morass of special interests and unprincipled ambition that the traditional Republican message of deeply limited government holds a seductive appeal.

So there's some Ron Paul substance - good, bad, and tin foil hat. Now back to our regularly scheduled snark.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
