So you want a revolution?
Get ready. The revolution is coming — or more precisely, the Ron Paul Revolution, as supporters of the Texas congressman and Republican presidential longshot say.
Paul supporters are planning “Paul-a-Palooza 2008” for the weekend before the Nevada Jan. 19 caucuses, featuring “The Ron Paul Mystery Tour” at Texas Station, a variety show that organizers promise will feature at least one Las Vegas Strip act and hopefully some nationally-known comedians. The centerpiece: a faux Fox News debate. (Paul supporters have targeted Fox because the network has excluded Paul from its next debate.)
Ticket sales are already underway for the Jan. 12 event through Station Casinos. Tix are $34.
Supporters will also engage in precinct canvassing and what they promise will be the largest Ron Paul march to date. The march is set to begin at the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and will end with, as organizers put it, “a cool PR stunt somewhere along the Las Vegas Strip.” The event starts at 3 p.m. on Jan. 12.
