TIME Calls Ron Paul "The Prophet"

Alex Altman writes in a TIME article entitled "The Prophet":

"Twilight descends in new Hampshire as an old man climbs onto his soapbox. LIBERTY: TOO BIG TO FAIL reads a banner hanging in the jam-packed tent. He is hardly a commanding figure, but a thousand people chant his name and lean in to listen, ready to follow, as Ron Paul delivers his genre-bending stump speech. There are no focus-grouped slogans, no empty calories: Paul's talk is more like a high-fiber graduate seminar on economic theory, forgotten history and the nooks and crannies of the U.S. Constitution."

The mainstream coverage is certainly encouraging, and the little blurb above does have some flattering words for Ron Paul, but do be cautious about mainstream coverage (not-so-)subtly insinuating that Ron Paul's revolution is some kind of cult. It's not accurate and it's not relevant.
