Ron Paul, Attracting Interesting Friends

It seams that the populist campaign of Ron Paul is attracting support from all over, including white supremacist. What may be surprising to some is Paul is refusing to distance himself from this group.

Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has received a $500 campaign donation from a white supremacist, and the Texas congressman doesn't plan to return it

Of course if you knew more about Ron Paul it would not have been that much of a shock.

On Saturday, Ron Paul held a campaign rally in Philadelphia. As Atrios noticed, it attracted a large crowd, most of them quite vocal about ending the Iraq war. But if you looked carefully, there was also an element (most them also antiwar) that's become something of a fixture at Ron Paul rallies: skinheads, neo-Nazis, militiamen, and various stripes of right-wing extremists.

I bet he will do real well with some the heritage and confederate flag crowd here in South Carolina.
