Superb Alternet article in defense of Ron Paul

Alternet's Joshua Holland has a superb article deconstructing the idiotic guilt by association attacks on Ron Paul's campaign. Money quote:
But more than that, the typical analysis misses the fundamental dynamic driving Paul's popularity. His campaign occupies that political space where right- and left-populism intersect, and that space exists only because there are significant areas of national policy where neither of the two parties, nor any of the "mainstream" candidates, have shown any willingness to represent their constituents.
