Newsmax Columnist Touts Ron Paul
Topic: Newsmax

Ronald Kessler is not the only Newsmax writer to shill for a presidential candidate. Columnist Doug Wead, who more typically writes about the doings of presidents' children, has been regularly cranking out columns promoting the presidential prospects of Ron Paul.

Here's a sampling of headlines of Wead columns since 2010:

Ron Paul Is Back in the Hunt

Media Turn Blind Eye to Ron Paul's CPAC Win

Goodbye Obama, Hello Ron Paul

Ron Paul Actually Can Win

Thomas Jefferson Lives On in Ron Paul

Ron Paul Just Makes Good Sense

Ron Paul Steals the Show at Faith and Freedom Conference

Ron Paul Shuns Dirty Politics

Is Ron Paul the American Churchill?

Ron Paul Scores Big in Iowa — but Ignored by Media

Ron Paul Is Reagan’s True Heir

The Conspiracy Against Ron Paul

Ron Paul Scores With Born-Again Christians

Ignoring Ron Paul Has Reached Comic Proportions

And here are a few choice Paul-fluffing quotes from Wead's columns:

"He is right on the issues. And he has hardly changed his positions in a lifetime of public service. This gives him an immeasurable advantage over Obama and Palin. The country is moving to him, not the other way around." -- April 15, 2010

"Most of all, Ron Paul still remembers the U.S. Constitution and he knows it by heart. And believes in it. You can't say that about Barack Obama or any of the other Republican candidates. There are the candidates and then there is Ron Paul. He stands alone." -- May 17, 2011

"Ron Paul and the rest of the invisible band will stay on target, moving silently through the marshes, looking to Oct. 19, the next moneybomb fundraiser and a chance to speak with their dollars. Go ahead, they say to the media elites and their robber barons, black this out!" -- Oct. 14

Expect a few more months of this from Wead, until Paul starts losing actual votes.
