Wednesday night in Los Angeles, presidential candidate Ron Paul broke his own attendance record, actually set the night before in Chico, California. The news media doesn't always pick up on the subtle, or even the obvious details that set Paul's feverish supporters apart from the typical pack. While the Chico attendance was recorded at six thousand four hundred, the media reported it as "hundreds" of participants.
At the UCLA event, participants had waited as long as nine hours, standing in line, wearing t-shirts, holding signs, chanting, and encouraging political discourse with each other. Of course, they had much to agree with each other, as Paul's supporter's are typically enthralled with his long-standing record of one-message, without changing points of view very often.
Even as this article goes to print, as Paul set a new attendance record (estimates have ranged form seven to ten thousand), the only mention of Paul on the Fox news site is "Paul Increasingly Absent From Campaign." This continuously frustrates his supporters, who turn out in significantly larger numbers than any other candidate in the race. Most complain that Paul is not given fair representation in the major news media, and this seems compellingly shown true tonight again.
