Heard about this and ran out to get the issue. Two excellent pieces : One by Michael Brendan Dougherty that is a very good and sympathetic overview of Dr. Paul. (I did find one assertion questionable - that RP's "academic style doesn't motivate people to rally to him". Oh really!). Another by Kara Hopkins that covers the Ron/Rudy clash at the SC debate and the mainstream GOP reaction to it, titled the "Stupid Party".

I wouldn't think so, they typically wait a few weeks to put most of their articles online. I highly recommend getting a copy now. Both excellent pieces.

Once they update their website you can buy and download the pdf version of the issue.

I know this sounds kinda dumb and does incovience employees but on top of buying the issue it would also be a good idea to makes sure you randomly place issues in prime spots to be seen by people who would not normally see it.

I got mine at a Barnes and Noble. They can be hard to find sometimes.

Nice.

How big is the circulation?

I'm not sure what the circulation is now. It is Pat Buchanan's magazine - he started it about 4-5 years ago I believe. Often has some very good articles with some big time writers, eg Paul Gottfried, Christopher Hitchens, Michael Scheuer had an article in one of the recent issues. I typically disagree with Buchanan's protectionist economic ideas but otherwise find it very good.
