I would not want to be in Charlie Webster's shoes right now. You can fudge paper ballots all you want, this? Not so much.

“Takeover is strong word; we’re all registered Republicans here,” said Matthew McDonald of Belfast, a Waldo County Republican and a Paul supporter. “But Chairman Webster called Ron Paul supporters wingnuts, he saw us as a fringe minority; now we hold the power of the convention.”




Would Webster face a backlash for apparently bending the rules to name a convention chairman ahead of time and not at the convention? Would Ron Paul supporters “take over” the convention, as Webster feared? Would what is supposed to be a party-building gathering devolve into a fractured mess?

Those questions were answered by lunchtime:Yes, yes and yes.

Also saw this on the front page of the Portland Press herald today. Maine GOP Convention: Paul shakes up the party. To be honest I was surprised to see this. Maybe the MSM is finally starting to wake up? Or a slow news day? Either way I am excited
to see this.

Paul wins majority of delegates from Maine GOP

This is getting really interesting. The Paulites should be an inspiration to everyone everywhere who feels betrayed by their governments.
