Ron Paul: Unfrozen comedic candidate?

The more I see of Ron Paul the more I'm struck by how familiar he looks, but I could never put my finger on it. This morning it finally hit me.

Comedian Pat Paulsen "ran" for President in nearly every Presidential election between 1968 and 1996. He died in 1997. Well, supposedly died.

Pat "died" in April of 1997. Is it just a coincidence that's the same year that Ron Paul returned to Congress after a 12-year break?

Pat "died" in Tijuana, Mexico...how convenient. How much does a back-alley death certificate cost in Tijuana?

Then, of course, there's the name tie-in.

But, hey...I'm not saying anything, I'm just asking questions.
