Get Ready for the Ron Paul Blimp (Blimp? Blimp!)

If you’re one of the skeptics that Ron Paul supporters are for reals, you probably won’t believe that they’re about to launch a Ron Paul blimp. Oh, but they are. There’s a posting on Daily Paul, and YouTube videos (one set to Electric Light Orchestra), and a website, which has generated nearly $500K in pledges so far—not to mention spoof videos (one set to Journey).

Get ready to see the blimp at the Super Bowl, and to accept once and for all that Ron Paulites are an incredibly devoted bunch who may be capable of doing pretty much any wild thing they put their mind to.
