Reason.com reminds us that Ron Paul is not only still running for President, but has actually won 32 out of 40 delegates at the Minnesota GOP convention.
But that's not really what I want to talk about. Instead, I find myself puzzling over the image I've been seeing on bumper stickers and yard signs.
What's the deal with the word "LOVE" embedded in "Ron Paul Revolution"? This confuses me. Am I to believe that Ron Paul is some sort of Leo Buscaglia-type self-help prophet? Have we been missing Ron Paul's real message? All this time I've been pegging him as Crazy Uncle Isolationist, and I never noticed that what he really wants is to LOVE everyone! I love you, you love me! Save us from insolvency!
Or does it mean something that the word is a mirrored reflection? Love's opposite, like Spock with a beard?
Or is this just really, really bad branding?
