Ron Paul under the radar

Well, Ron Paul gets no respect from the media, but while they're busy ignoring him in favor of badgering White House PressSec Jay Carney for an exposive quote on gay marriage, Ron Paul is quietly carrying out his stealth plan to take over the Republican party.

Paul is winning delegates to the GOP convention: "Over the weekend, Ron Paul won Maine and Nevada, gaining 20 of 24 delegates in Maine, and 22 of 25 in Nevada."

Sure, it doesn't mean he has a prayer of actually winning the nomination but his rowdy supporters could surely throw a spannard into the works. It would make for quite a show and considering Romney's proclivity for hamhanded handling of difficult moments, well, it could at least make it a lot more entertaining and quite possibly derail his campaign in some dangerous way.

But that's just the convention. Ron Paul apparently has a long range plan to reshape the party:
SPARKS - In a show of anti-establishment political power at Saturday's Nevada Republican Convention, GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul's supporters ousted two Mitt Romney backers from the Republican National Committee.
That doesn't kick in until after the convention but these people have actual power over the long term. Yes, I know only two members aren't really going to change the GOP's world, but it seems somewhat significant that it happened in Nevada. With the heavy Mormom presence there, that should be solid Romney territory. Odd that Paul supporters could pull it off there.

Paul supporters plus well armed teabaggers in the heat of a Tampa summer, what could go wrong?
