What this means and all it means right now is that Ron Paul's name will be put in nomination, seconded, and then Paul gets to make a speech.

So is Justin Beiber going to sing the National Anthem for Romney? If so, Ron Paul should roll up with Immortal Technique....If this is going to be a boxing match then this would be the fight of the century(metaphorically speaking). It would probably get more ratings then the upcoming Mayweather fight...edit on 4-5-2012 by KonquestAbySS because: (no reason given)

"Paul is costing the state a lot of credibility," said Bob Haus, a GOP consultant who most recently headed up Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign in the state.

I realize this is off-topic and severely tinfoil-y, but maybe if I repeat it enough, it will get some traction.
According to his Wikipedia history, Mitt Romney was involved in a fatal car accident while he was a missionary in France. It was said by all concerned that it was not his fault, that a car suddenly veered into his lane and hit his (he was driving) head-on. The wife of the president of the mission died and (here's where it gets interesting) Mitt was declared dead by the policeman on scene who wrote in his passport, "Il est mort", or 'he is dead'. Sargeant Shriver who was ambassador to France at the time was tasked by Romney's father to go to the hospital and find out what was going on, and he found Mitt there, alive but seriously injured. Apparently it took him a year or so to recover.
The other tinfoily part about this is, it has been reported that the technology now exists to create a perfect adult clone of any adult age in a year's time...
I am not a mitt romney fan, but check out his wikipedia page again. it seems you have embellished quite a bit....actually most of what you have said is not on his wiki page. other sources please.

Interesting, the Wiki page has been edited since I last looked at it; here's a piece from Boston.com (main Boston newspaper about the 'Il est mort' quote:
Chapter 4: A brush with tragedy
At that moment, a Catholic priest in a Mercedes passed a truck at high speed, missed a curve near a post office, and smashed nearly head on into their car. The collision collapsed the front of the Citroën, thrusting the engine into the front seat. Mitt Romney was pinned between the steering column and the driver’s door. He was knocked out and trapped in the bloody wreckage. Romney’s injuries appeared so severe that a police officer who responded to the scene made a grave notation in the young man’s passport: “Il est mort”—“He is dead.”
Granted the 'clone' issue is out there, I'm not sure where I read this, but it was in reference to a claim that GWB had died of a drug overdose sometime before he ran for office in 2000 and was a clone. Somethin' sure was wrong with his mental abilities by that point; the GWB from the 1980s, even after he had been a heavy drinker and probably coke user for years, was still pretty mentally acute; look at his older public appearances. The guy in office was a moron.
What other part am I embellishing, I'll try to find corroboration?

It only becomes brokered if Romney does not get enough delegates voting for him in the first round. Although even then some states bind their delegates for multiple rounds of voting. Just looking at bound delegates Romney is well on his way to hitting the magic 50%+1 number and it is very unlikely he won't reach it. Considering that most unbound delegates are luminaries in the party it's very likely that the vast majority of these 126 votes will be going to Romney as well.
Jennifer Sheehan, Legal Counsel for the RNC, plainly stated in a letter to Nancy Lord, Utah National Committeewoman, several weeks before the convention, “[The] RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.” And, “The national convention allows delegates to vote for the individual of their choice, regardless of whether the person’s name is officially placed into nomination or not.”

They're no longer "state delegates" at the RNC. Each state chooses elects delegates to then become "National delegates"
