Andrew Sullivan, Accidental Ron Paul Surrogate

Ron Paul releases a new ad for Hawaii's caucus -- next Tuesday, expense reports department! -- with a still that jumps out at you.

Did the Atlantic say that Ron Paul was right about the economic crisis? Yes. Andrew Sullivan wrote that when he blogged in the House of Bradley. The title of his post is the quote in the ad.

Greenspan says what is obvious: that we cannot afford McCain's continued tax cuts and minimal spending restraints. We cannot afford Obama's spending plans either - but at least he isn't proposing to increase the debt.

He wasn't, at the time.
