NEW YORK (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul received GQ magazine's "Dark Horse of the Year" award, his campaign announced Tuesday.
Paul, a Texas congressman, was the only 2008 presidential candidate to receive a 2007 "Men of the Year" award from the men’s magazine. However, former President Bill Clinton won the "Public Citizen" award and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg won the "Maverick" award.

Perhaps GQ could award itself the Most Insignificant Publication Award?
Ron Paul should have won the "Truth, Honesty and Constitutional Correctness" award or "True American President" award.
He's the rare presidential candidate that has fought for his country, the constitution and fought against government corruption for over 30 years. He's the rare presidential candidate that has the American people's values at heart rather than the values of corporate America. He doesn't hide behind a carefully crafted image and doesn't pander to special interest groups. He spits the truth and everyone should demand the same level of integrity from all government officials.
Ron Paul would dismantle whatever parts of the government that Bush didn't sell off to the highest bidder. If you want Blackwater patrolling your neighborhood and all the good firetrucks to be rented out of Beverly Hills and no meaningful healthcare watsoever that's not provided by HMOs making billions, Ron Paul is your guy.
Ron Paul is uniting millions from all demographics...
That is awesome!
So, he's the 'dark horse' now?
Probably one of the Dark Horses of the Apocalypse...wonder who his rider is. Famine, Death, Pestilence, or War?
Wha? Pubic Citizen? Oh did I read that wrong ? Ah well congratulations Ron Paul. You are the anti-establishment hero
Ron Paul has to win this election or our dollar is gone. He understands that this country is great not because we have Mickey Mouse and M & M.s, it's because we have the constitution.
I'm glad GQ recognized that there are alot of Americans that know Ron Paul is the only honest candidate in the race.
shouldn't Obama be "the dark horse"? Oh, never mind...
Bloomberg is still the mayor of New York...yes?
Awesome, I think GQ knows what a lot of people in the media are going to know after New Hampshire and Iowa. Ron Paul has real support and will be the next President!
Yay for liberty.
I see Ron Paul signs everywhere. It is insane. Although I do not think he stands a chance.
I don't think Mike Bloomberg will appreciate being called the former mayor.
He shoulda won the next president of the year award :P good for Ron Paul
Ron Paul has my vote
Congressman and Dr. Ron Paul is the man, who can think out of the box. He happens to have lots of integrity, too.
I'm pretty sure Michael Bloomberg is still the mayor of New York. I learned how to proofread in elementary school.
The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.
Go Ron Paul! Stylish and competent! Check him out at ronpaul2008.com
He is a sexy man!
Looks like I'll be picking up a copy of GQ.
Go Ron Paul!
Zachary Taylor was a dark horse too.
What if "We the People" decided not
to pay our income taxes next year. If
we all agreed then Congress would have to put 300 million people in jail. Imagine the litagation cost, the jail
costs, the cost of no one working to pay taxes, all for 535 people to have
Power. How do you have power spending other people's money. When all men are created equal, it's sounds like Communism. If that's what America votes for next year, then bring on Hillary/Obama.
A happy day for every bare foot, backwoods, anarchist that is sitting on the front porch swing of this log cabin with his shotgun on his lap wish the IRS would set foot on his property to collect "dem libreal" taxes.
Just too bad that the big government's US postal service is the only parcel carrier that can get to their bfe residence to deliver GQ. Darn!
Does anyone remember JFK?
How about RFK?
If Ron Paul gets that far, the people that REALLY control things would do a Kennedy job on him in a heartbeat.
If you can't see that Hillary Clinton has already been (s)elected to be president, then you are living in fairy-tale land where America is still a democracy and actually has elections.
