There are a few disgruntled attendees at the RNC convention in Tampa tonight. Gotta love the little lobsters on the clothespins – nice touch.
These are Maine Ron Paul delegates who were replaced by the RNC with Romney delegates. Read the story here. I’m not a fan of Ron Paul, but he certainly has a strong following here in neighboring New Hampshire.
Apparently the script doesn’t have room for a distraction like a candidate who went the distance and accumulated a significant number of supporters. You can bet that the whole thing is planned to have the nomination consummated at a specific time by the delegates of a specific state.
Is anybody surprised that the party whose strategy has incorporated voter ID requirements that target students and seniors would ramrod a credentials challenge through at the convention?
