If Ron Paul wins the presidency, will that no longer count?

Via Slate, we discover that Fox News is continuing its – increasingly difficult – job of marginalizing Ron Paul by declaring that the Iowa primary “no longer counts.” I’m not kidding.

On the other side of the Web, Andrew Sullivan concludes his patriotic heartfelt, and long-winded endorsement of Paul for the GOP nomination by adding, “Oh, and f*** you, Roger Ailes.” Andrew Sullivan apparently not being a fan of visceral, well-produced war propaganda. Noobs!

Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan releases the “Dark Knight Rises” trailer.

: Look at the preemptive lengths to which GOP elites are going in Iowa to discredit Ron Paul:

“People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,” said Gov. Terry Branstad. “If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states.”

So if Ron Paul wins by 25 percent and Newt Gingrich wins by 10, Gingrich wins. Of course. And there is no establishment conspiracy.
