As Steve was saying earlier, Ron Paul backers took over the state conventions in Nevada and Maine this weekend. In each case, the Paul crowd captured a majority of the delegates and made the Republican mainstream really, really mad. Mad as in here come the legal challenges mad. Mad as in this, posted last night by Maine State Representative Lance Harvell on the conservative site As Maine Goes:
To those who achieved this “victory” You have won nothing and you have destroyed what took years to build. You torpedoed a ship and have jumped on board claiming victory. You remind me of a t-baller who hits a ball half way to the pitcher and then through a comedy of errors gets home and think you have hit a home run. Good Luck on your own I am done with all of you fools the cult of personality worship I saw reminded me of Nuremberg only the outstretched arms were missing.
As Mama might say, my goodness. Bonus headline from the mayhem: Governor Paul LePage’s speech calling on all able-bodied Mainers to “get off the couch and get yourself a job.”
