My husband is a Ron Paul delegate at the state convention this weekend. There are a LOT of Ron Paul delegates, and they are threatening to unseat the old-boy mainstream chairman of the party, which is a very good thing. Lots of tension, apparently, and the old-boy republican types are scrambling to maintain their power. Here are a few things he has texted to me: -- Lisa Murkowski is scheduled to give a speech tomorrow. After running against the legitimately elected republican senate candidate (Joe Miller) and essentially purchasing the election, she should be persona non grata within the republican party. The Ron Paul delegates are leading an effort which will have close to half of the delegates standing up and turning their backs on her during her speech. -- The judiciary committee passed a resolution calling for an end to the drug war. The mainstream republicans are LIVID! I believe this changes the official platform of the state republican party. -- They also passed a resolution calling for the abolishment of the TSA. Not sure if anybody's really livid about that one. The chair of the party is apparently going around with an armed guard. An overreaction, maybe, but there are two old Ron Paul groupies from 2008 who are now serving time for weapons misconduct, domestic violence, and manslaughter, so maybe he's afraid there's a sleeper crazy amongst the Ron Paul people. I doubt it though -- they just want him out of his position. I'll keep you posted; the convention goes through Sunday.
