Free Advice For Ron Paul
By Billy Cox

Can you imagine the foul and craven spectacle we'd be subjected
to if the "Macarena" had hit the charts today instead of 10
years ago? Something that popular and ubiquitous?

Oh yeah - John McCain wouldn't be singing "Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-
 bomb" whatever. He and Edwards and Mitt and Barack and Rudy and
all those other swingin' hipsters would be doing "Macarena"
gyrations in Iowa and New Hampshire to prove they're down with
the people.

Spritz the breeze with the scent of a trend and these chronic
extroverts are all over it. Remember 1988, when the George H.W.
Bush and the Michael Dukakis camps both appropriated "Don't
Worry, Be Happy" as their campaign song? Ugh.

Seems like just yesterday - actually, it was yesterday, almost -
that the candidates were all chortling in unison about how they
didn't "believe" in UFOs (De Void, 11/12/07). Granted, it was a
glib, media-driven form of karaoke so patently insincere and
ephemeral, the entire exercise had the shelf life of room-
 temperature shrimp. And the one who started it all - Dennis
Kucinich, responding to a question at the Dems' debate on Oct.
30 - became the soccer ball.

But wait. What happened to Kucinich's polling numbers after he
admitted he saw a UFO?

Fox News recorded a half-point bump to 2 percent approval from
October to November. Gallup tracked him from a single point to
2.5 percent over the same period. Newsweek saw Kucinich double
his support to 4 percent from August to November, as did CNN (1
percent to 2 percent).

Clearly, these numbers are nothing to scream about and there's
no evidence of a direct correlation. What it does indicate is
that the UFO revelation didn't hurt the guy. In fact, had Mike
Gravel taken De Void's advice (9/7/07), he might have been able
to scrape up enough money to grease his way back into the
Democratic debates.

So, Ron Paul - are you listening? Yes, it's cool you can raise
$4 mil in a single day; 6 percentage points don't come cheap.
Bottom line: You're still in the zero-to-lose zone.

If you're serious about shaping the national dialogue on
unraveling big government, do your homework. Be smart and start
asking questions about UFOs. The big difference between them and
the "Macarena" is, UFOs have been playing for more than half a
century. The first one of you guys to learn the moves is gonna
draw a serious crowd.
