Ron Paul discussed his Republican rivals in a wide-ranging and rather long interview last night with Jay Leno. While he was generally complimentary towards Romney, Gingrich, and Huntsman, his comments about Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum were far more pointed.

JAY LENO: Michele Bachmann?

RON PAUL: She doesn't like Muslims. She hates Muslims. She hates them. She wants to go get them.

And Santorum?

RON PAUL: Gay people and Muslims.

Zing.

And while neither Bachmann or Santorum are expected to be around much longer once the Iowa caucuses are over, Ron Paul's ability to really stick the knife in to his competitors where appropriate must cause some considerable concern to the rest of them as well.
