It should have been clear already, but Texas congressman and godfather of the tea party movement Ron Paul is running for president again. He'll make the official announcement on Good Morning America tomorrow, thus also ending the weirdest, most unconvincing faux-prospective presidential run of all — Rand Paul's. The Elder Paul has enough of a loyal following that he'll never fall too low in the polls, but lacks enough broad appeal within the party to ever climb too high, either. His impressions of heroin junkies will make the debates 400 percent more enjoyable, however. [Politico]
