Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

And the press were worried about Democratic unity?

If it weren't bad enough that long time social conservative Republican, Bob Barr is running as a Libertarian and specifically targeting disaffected Republicans, now we hear that Ron Paul (R-TX) is going to have a rival convention for his supporters in Minneapolis-St. Paul and on the same days as the Republican convention. Apparently the Paulistas are outraged because Ron Paul isn't getting an invitation to speak at the GOP convention.

McCain is going to be playing whack-a-mole with high profile party defections for the next several months. With right wing voters having at least two options (Barr and McCain) and with Ron Paul seemingly doing everything he can to undercut his party's nominee, McCain is going to be real trouble. If Ron Paul announces a run as an Independent, I'll throw a party. If he does that it MIGHT even put Texas in play!

Of course Ron Paul wants to undercut McCain. He cannot argue that the Republican party lost because it abandoned libertarian principles if, in fact, it wins. Ditto John Barr and the right-wing crap.

Well, Ron Paul just quit the GOP race. See

"WASHINGTON (CNN) – Texas Rep. Ron Paul announced Thursday he is suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination to focus his time on building an organization to help recruit and elect “limited government Republicans.”

“We want to elect constitutionalists, limited government Republicans across the country at the state and federal level,” said Paul spokesman Jesse Benton."

So basically he's going to set up the anti-Emily's List.
