Ron Paul has now made it. First he was on The Daily Show, then he showed up on Bill Maher’s show. And now, since last night he has been on The Colbert Report.

Are you a Republican or are you not a Republican?” “You’re confused, because I’m a constitutionalist, and you haven’t met one in a long time,” responded Ron Paul.
