Dave Weigel sets David Frum straight:

The “Paulites=Naderites” bit is too silly to address, but comparing $8m over one year with $4.3m in one day—that’s not apples and oranges, it’s apples and nuclear submarines.

For the comparison to be at all meaningful, you would have to tally up all of Paul’s fundraising this year to date, which I believe is north of $15 million (Weigel says 15.5).  Looked at this way, he has almost doubled the fundraising of Nader’s campaign, the year isn’t over yet and he’s just getting warmed up.
