Hookers for ... Ron Paul?!

Despite the "hook" (jeez, I loved doing that...) of the story of a political visit to one of Nevada's legal brothels, showing that the "girls" working there are supporting Ron Paul(!), the story itself is actually a very incisive analysis of what's gone so dreadfully wrong for the Rethug party in the Intermountain West. That's a geographical region that for a long time has been solidly Republican, and suddenly the Rethug party won't be able to count on that solid support this year.

Oh, and since these working girls are considered self-employed independent contractors, their support of Paul doesn't really come as a surprise. His stands on health care and bringing the troops home have a special resonance with these ladies.
