This is some fantastic product placement…
#RNC2012 (Taken with Instagram at Tampa International Airport (TPA))

I’m just sayin’. I’m now sitting at the gate and waiting to board my plane. Next to me are some sadfaced Ron Paul fans discussing the strategy for 2016.
Guys. I know the RNC pulled some shenanigans, but really…
When Jerry Garcia died, the deadheads went home. Rep. Ron Paul said this was his last hurrah. At least unite behind Sen. Rand Paul, or former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson.
Instead, this is what they did down at the bookstore at the United Terminal as a form of protest:

When the clerk would move the books, they’d put them back. Seriously. It’s a little ridiculous. I think you could find something else to do. Like knitting. Or pick up a copy of The Hunger Games. I hear it’s a good read.
In all seriousness, the Paul fans are much more passionate than I saw anyone be about Romney at the RNC. I’m not sure if that’s necessarily a good forecast for the general feeling the GOP has regarding their nominee, but I did run into two delegates Thursday wearing these pins they bought on Zazzle.com:
