    nono. I know about the 1860 republican convention. I meant that this is the biggest since.

May be business as usual but it sounds exceedingly shady to me, and reeks of smoky back rooms with elections being decided by the chosen few instead of the voters.
    Yes. I've said it before, I'll say it again. The true 'revolution' going on is enlightenment. There is and always has been shady deals at elections and conventions. The difference is that this year at the Republican convention, they are not hiding it. It is in plain site. But alas, the MSM will not even touch it even though it is very important stuff.

    The MSM is pretty useless, actually. They're all too busy being the third arm of their political ideology's PR campaign to give out any, you know, useful information. I don't really have a dog in this race. I hate the GOP and the Democrats equally, think they are the left-and-right hands of power-corrupted greed, and the last thing either party cares about are the actual citizens of the country.

    Thanks for the reply. It does seem a blatant display of chutzpah, but if there is a floor fight, the media will be hard-pressed to ignore it, since every media source in the country has eyes and ears on the convention floor pretty much 24/7.

    @Dana: Thanks for this thread. It will be interesting to see what happens.

    Will they wear eye patches and have parrots perched on their shoulders? 'Cause I'd totally watch for that.

    I think the real pirate here doesn't have a parrot on his shoulder, but a dog on the roof of his car. LOL.

    Is Romney actually proposing the rule change?

    The Romney camp is, and as Romney represents them, he is also responsible.

    I have a hard time with guilt by association. Nobody applies it equally.

    Is Romney asking them to stop? Of course he isn't. Yes, he is responsible.
