    His politics suck, but he seems like a very likable guy. I always like to separate the man from the politics, something that I think many of you often fail to do. This has been an extremely impressive campaign- getting interviews on CNN and the Colbert Report (most watched political show I believe) while the Barr campaign has been dismal (there’s a reason his poll numbers dropped from 6% to 1%, and it’s not because of people getting cold feet) and extremely depressing.

    If you look into Moore, he’s had an amazing life. Most impressively, “Moore raised $3 million for a de-worming project that successfully protected more than one million children from parasitic infections in the poverty-stricken areas” (from Wikipedia).

    Good point, and his politics don’t completely suck. He’s great on peace and civil liberties issues, and I agree with him about the evil of big corporations. I just disagree that government monopolies running things directly would be better, and I realize that big corporations are chartered and empowered by the government.

    Also, Fox News. Pretty remarkable for a candidate who is on in so few states, you can count them on your fingers. Has any other socialist ever done so well in the media in recent decades? Especially given there are two other socialists running who have better ballot access
    (granted they are Marxists, so he is more presentable).

    This economy is putting socialist ideas in vogue, clearly.

    In many ways, but his media access has been decent, pretty good for a libertarian. If he hadn’t been oversold, it would be seen as great.

    Also impressive is that I could count his staff on my fingers, and they’re all scattered and operating through email. They have been filling up his schedule in the last month, bumping him up to what I see as the top socialist ticket (I saw La Riva as on that level for a time).

    “I always like to separate the man from the politics, something that I think many of you often fail to do.”

    I agree with this 100%. Even GWB seems like he’d be nice enough guy in person.

    It’s politics that turns men into monsters.

    Say what you will about Brian Moore’s politics, but he’s waging a truly remarkable campaign. Despite spending only $36-$37,000 — far less than we originally hoped to raise — Brian has doggedly managed to get his party’s views before a significant portion of the American electorate.

    It hasn’t been easy to get his message out when running against a “Celebrity-in-Chief” and his rival who wants to succeed the “Commander-in-Thief.”

    But Brian has perservered.

    In addition to his recent appearance on the Colbert Report, Brian is expected to be featured in a story on CNN’s Headline News, which will be aired throughout the day tomorrow. The one-time Franciscan seminary student was also featured in a story in the Chicago Tribune’s “Swamp” yesterday and has regularly been doing a slew of local radio and television interviews, including appearances on two New York radio stations and a Colorado station earlier today.

    Brian will also appear on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” tomorrow morning at 8:00AM, followed by another round of local radio interviews in various parts of the country, including Texas, where he’s running as a write-in candidate. We’re also expecting an article in the Los Angeles Times this weekend. At least we’re keeping our fingers crossed!

    Even at this late hour in the campaign, Brian’s small, unpaid staff, consisting of only three or four volunteers and displaying the same tenacity as their candidate, are working frantically to line up additional last-minute interviews and haven’t completely given up on the possibility of another major television appearance between now and November 4th.

    Hoping for a political miracle, Brian Moore will be making his case until the polls close on Tuesday night. Those who know him well would expect nothing less…
