Ron Paul didn’t do as well with Republican voters in South Carolina as he had done in Iowa and New Hampshire. But he’s still the king of Twitter. (And tweeters, of course, are the people who in one day faced down Hollywood and forced leading senators to withdraw their online-piracy bills.) Natalie Jennings of the Washington Post reports:
NBC’s Chuck Todd might have summed up Thursday’s events best with this tweet:Books about this campaign will have chapters simply titled: “January 19th”
And Gingrich exploded at moderator John King within the first few minutes of the CNN debate that night.
Lots of Cato commentary on Ron Paul here. Some Mitt Romney analysis here. Some pretty sharp criticisms of Rick Santorum here. Aaaand my colleagues haven’t been too keen on Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama either. What kind of policies would we like to see a presidential candidate propose?
