Ta-Nehisi compares Ron Paul to Louis Farrakhan.

As surely as Ron Paul speaks to a real issue--the state's broad use of violence and surveillance--which the America's political leadership has failed to address, Farrakhan spoke to something real, something unsullied, which black America's political leadership failed to address, Both Paul and Farrakhan, in their glamour, inspired the young, the disaffected, the disillusioned. 

Maggie Haberman's prediction: Pain.

Fred Karger and Buddy Roemer exist.
