Via the LAT’s Top of the Ticket: Ron Paul’s forces quietly plot GOP convention revolt against McCain

quietly, largely under the radar of most people, the forces of Rep. Ron Paul have been organizing across the country to stage an embarrassing public revolt against Sen. John McCain when Republicans gather for their national convention in St. Paul at the beginning of September.

Let’s put this in perspective, shall we? Paul’s “forces” at the convention appear to be around 19 delegates out of basically 2000. Somehow, I am not so sure that such a group will be in a position to foment an especially significant convention revolt. Yes, they can also protest outside of the convention, but that is hardly novel.

Quite frankly, this sounds like just another example of the Paul-ites over-estimating their significance.

  2. Hm. If their calculations are correct, then I think that *I* have almost as good a shot at taking over the convention, mathematically speaking.
