Video: The Apostle Paul

COLUMBIA — Nobody out-passions Ron Paul supporters.

Talk to any journalist, pundit, pollster or operative who is covering or working the Republican Party presidential campaign, and they have vivid stories of the energy, the enthusiasm, the loyalty of Paulians, the term by which they self-identify.

This passion gets channeled in various ways. Paulians are particularly angered at the mainstream press for what they perceive to be negative and unequal treatment of their candidate. I follow a number of leading national presidential reporters and pollsters on my twitter feed, and pretty much every day at least one of them shares some experience with disgruntled Paul supporters.
