Ron Paul Raises Five Times As Much As Huckabee  —  Oh me of little faith.  Ron Paul cannot be dismissed as a gadfly; the chance for him to outperform expectations rises exponentially with additional million dollars he raises.  5.08m is real money.  There must be, within the Republican Party, a vein of anti-war libertarian sentiment.
Chris Cillizza / The Fix:
Huckabee's Money  —  UPDATE, 2:15 pm: Huckabee's numbers seem even less impressive given that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) — far more of a longshot than the former Arkansas Governor — raised more than $5 million over the last three months.  —  ORIGINAL POST  —  One of the biggest questions …

Ron Paul: Five Million Dollar Man  —  Ron Paul's campaign confirms that it collected $5,080,000 in the third quarter of fundraising.  That's more than double the campaign's second quarter haul of $2.4 million; it's also as much as "comeback" candidate John McCain has reportedly raised.

Kos Traffic Numbers Inflated by 60%  —  Yesterday, I had the good "fortune" of being frontpaged on Daily Kos.  The post sat atop the site for two hours.  According to Google Analytics, the link produced 1,164 visitors yesterday.  —  For the traffic behemoth Kos is portrayed as, that seems low …
Jonah Goldberg / The Corner:
The Drug War, And Other Problems  —  Yesterday's brief discussion of the drug war is still eliciting lots and lots of email, as it always does.  It's funny, I'd say the biggest source of my own self-censorship isn't political correctness, fear of controversy, or even aversion to copious hate mail (I get that any way).

Fred Thompson on Harry Reid's attacks on Rush Limbaugh  —  Congressional Democrats are trying to divert attention from insulting our military leader in Iraq and pandering to the loony left by attacking Rush Limbaugh.  He is one of the strongest supporters of our troops, yet Democrats claim he is not being strong enough.
