Less than a week before South Carolina's Republican primary, Ron Paul is currently polling third behind Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. He's risen six percentage points in the last seven days according to PPP, and now he has sewn up the crucial "Fiscally Conservative Pimp" vote. Dennis Hof, who owns Nevada's Moonlite Bunny Ranch, tells CNN, "If a client comes into the Bunny Ranch and says 'I'm pimpin for Paul,' they're gonna have a really good time." Presumably this refers to the sense of purpose one feels by being civically-minded shortly after expensive, soul-shattering coitus.

Being a Libertarian (except when it comes to women having liberty over their own bodies, which doesn't count), Paul can't fully admit to condemning the Bunny Ranch's existence. In 2007 the candidate's handler told the AP that "while Paul does not personally condone prostitution, the candidate does not think it's the role of the federal government to regulate such activity."

Paul has also had a tough time distancing himself from the support of white supremacists, thanks to those pamphlets that he totally didn't write but was copacetic with. We hope Dr. Paul enjoys his once-in-a-lifetime endorsement, and maybe even parlays it into an HBO series. Although that last one didn't go too well.
