Don't bother Ron Paul while he eats breakfast

Ron Paul is a simple man with big ideas. Even though he's running for the highest office in the land and you can find him on TV at any given moment, don't get it twisted-- he's just a regular old guy. A reporter from the National Journal found that out when she happened to see Paul at breakfast Thursday at an Embassy Suites in Iowa. She approached him with a question and it wasn't pretty:

Asked if he's concerned that if he doesn't win his followers will not rally behind the GOP nominee, he looks up from his plate of cantaloupe, honeydew, eggs, sausage and biscuit and says brusquely, "Right now, the only thing that bothers me is people who don't respect my privacy enough to leave me alone for five minutes when I'm eating breakfast." And then he goes back to reading his USA Today.
