Ron Paul: Wii Warrior or PlayStation3 Playah?

The Texas presidential hopeful makes a bid for the youth vote.

When politicians try to reach out to "the kidz," the end result is normally, well … MC Rove … cough …

So next week could provide a must-see-TV moment when U.S. Rep. Ron Paul will be talking about video-game censorship on G4TV's Attack of the Show. The only Texan running for president will be making his appeal to the youth vote on a program best known for its pop-culture references, video-game reviews, and a sex-advice section called In Your Pants.

For those of you with the right cable package, tune in next Tuesday at 6pm Central, and watch the alleged Republican/sometime libertarian give his opinion on YouTube campaigning and net neutrality.
