Now THAT’S Ironic

I guess he was saved by the free hand of the market:
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A Continental Airlines flight carrying former presidential candidate Ron Paul and six other members of Congress to Washington, D.C., made an emergency landing in New Orleans on Tuesday after a loss in cabin pressure.

The seven congressmen, all from Texas, were trying to get back in time for a Tuesday night vote on an aviation safety bill when the flight landed without incident, a spokesman for one of the representatives said. No injuries were reported among the 128 crew and passengers.
Good thing there weren’t any pesky government safety regulations to get in the way of their safe landing.
