Ron Paul Talks To Jon Stewart

Ron Paul consistently places third place or better in polls.

On a Monday episode of The Daily Show, comedian Jon Stewart offered 2012 GOP candidate Ron Paul some advice about how get the mainstream media to stop leaving him out of news reports despite overwhelming support.

Stewart suggested jokingly that Paul might try repudiating some of his past political positions to give other candidates something to engage him about at future debates.

“I would suggest, perhaps, what you should do right now is come out for a war on Iran,” said Stewart before saying that Paul’s “consistency has been a real problem for the media.”

The comedian also noted that the mainstream media continue to cover politicians like Sarah Palin and Chris Christie who are not even running in the 2012 race yet, while suppressing headlines for Paul who consistently places third place or better in polls.

“Some people don’t want to hear the message,” Paul said, “Because it’s a threat to them. I’m a threat to the establishment. And some just don’t understand what freedom is all about.”

Paul said that his campaign could very well be on the verge of an explosion of interest in his Presidential bid as his message of freedom and free markets gains momentum.
