From a mass email the Ron Paul campaign sent out today:
Does this mean our campaign has done everything right? No! We have made mistakes, and will make them again. Not only because errors are to be found in any human endeavor, but because an effort like this, to repeal a hundred years and more of evil, is brand-new on the face of the earth. But now is the time to stick together like the brothers and sisters we are, to stand side by side in this fight against the media toadies, warmongers, and Wall Street rip-off artists who stand against us, and who always remind me of Tolkein’s Orcs.
I can believe that this was actually written by an aide. And statistically speaking, 95% of Orcs probably are criminals. But this isn’t Middle Earth anymore.
Seriously though, complaining about the media and brushing aside mistakes is not the best response to the coverage of the past few days.
