Ron Paul's got it made. While Mitt Romney is struggling to save his pretty-boy campaign, and Newt Gingrich is trying to clarify what "going negative" means, Paul is releasing these long, futuristic ads beating the dickens out of everyone (in this case, Gingrich).

Paul is in second place in Iowa. What are his opponents supposed to do with him, getting in the way like this? If they start going out of their way to trash him, then Paul will just declare an independent bid and hand Obama his reelection. Watch out for the old man. Watch out for all old men, really, as a general rule.
