This doesn't seem very fringe to me.
Sure they can cause mischief. Heck, one nut can cause mischief.
No, Ron Paul can't beat Obama. I realize that this is a standard line (and the media is blamed), but Paul can't even get close to 20% of Republicans to support him. But, he stands a chance against Obama...
