A strong sign that Barr "gets" the new "bottom-up" campaign and fundraising paradigm-- he has hired Ron Paul's webmaster.

After I came out supporting Ron Paul as my favorite Republican candidate, tens of thousands of Ron Paul supporters started coming to my site on a daily basis. Most of them were anti-war, anti-Bush conservatives. At first, I thought they'd be potential Obama supporters. After interacting with enough of them, my read of them changed. They were mostly the people Thom Hartmann describes-- socially more liberal, but extremely anti-government, anti-tax-- and very unlikely to vote Democratic, except for the disaffected former Democrats, who, failing to have Ron Paul to vote for, will probably vote for independent Ralph Nader or Green Party Candidate Cynthia McKinney.

If Barr can meet the hopes of Libertarians and surpass the traditional turnout they have seen, Barr could be one of the factor that turn John McCain's campaign into the rout it has the potential to become... if the Dems don't implode.
