Why isn't this guy in first place ?

This story shows the deliberate way that Ron Paul's campaign is establishing its (and his) honesty in the political arena. Yet somehow, the article comes off to me, like it is making fun of him or accusing him of playing some kind of game. Games are played in politics- every charming remark, every everyday-kind-of-guy gesture, is calcualated to make us feel a certain way. So even if this is a game of some sort, one to make us feel like " WOW, this guy is honest", the outcome is still the same; he really is reporting even the smallest of expenditures---A big difference from a government in which HUGE bills are pushed for passage without anyone even knowing what is in them...
