Olbermann finally says two words I didn't think he knew.... "Ron Paul"
"Countdown" host praises Ron Paul’s fundraising efforts

On last night’s "Countdown with Keith Olbermann", Keith discussed the financial situations of the GOP candidates with Congressional Quarterly’s Craig Crawford. Both men discussed the dwindling bank accounts of McCain, Huckabee and Giuliani but when they mentioned Ron Paul, they praised his campaign for raising huge amounts of money in single days.
Crawford said, “If this were private business, Ron Paul would be the only profit making company of the lot”, then finished with, “there’s something about the Paul campaign, they just pull it in…they don’t even ask for it”. Yes, I'm guessing that the "something" Crawford refers to is the message of freedom, ending the war, following the Constitution, strengthening the economy and getting the government out of our lives.
It’s no secret that I love Keith’s show, but I have been very angry at him for being silent on Ron Paul. Especially when Keith has been such a big advocate of saving the Constitution, restoring Habeas Corpus and pointing out the Bush administrations’ scandals and history of fake terror stories, things that would make you think he would easily support Ron Paul. Yet, Keith hardly ever mentions him. I’m sure this has to do with it being mainstream media and that even Keith gets the “censor Ron Paul” message from his superiors.
Everyone is bought and paid for in the media, but not everyone has sold their soul. Glad to finally see that Keith knows who Ron Paul is.
