Predicting Barr's Vote Total

Dan, Ron Paul is not prohibited from endorsing any candidate he pleases, and he’s already endorsed several congressional candidates.

JRE, if we predict different vote totals for the Barr campaign, why is my prediction the one that counts as “spin”? I’m pretty much just repeating the recent prediction of David Nolan, who is no fan of Bob Barr. I don’t know who you are, but I’m sorry if I don’t fit into whatever preconceived box you want to put me in. (However, I’m always tickled by the blogosphere theories that the Reform Caucus is controlling the LP from behind the scenes. Any such stories are always welcome, as long as they don’t reveal how few people actually showed up at our Reform Caucus meetings in Denver.)

Similarly, just because I’m not as critical of Barr as his most rabid detractors, that doesn’t imply I’m “attempting to let him down easy”. Unlike some Libertarians, I don’t first decide whether a fellow Libertarian is an enemy, and then only say the worst possible things I can say about him. Instead, I just call ‘em like I see ‘em.
