Oregon Republican Convention Chaos

After the delegates had been elected across the state, party officials realized that a well organized band of Ron Paul supporters had been outvoting the preferred establishment choices. The only way they could defeat the Ron Paul supporters was to delay the rest of the voting until the conventions were scheduled to adjourn. At that point, citing an RNC rule, the state executive committee would then have the authority to appoint any unfilled spots in the delegation.

It looks like the Republican party is self destructing. I can only hope the Democrat party does the same. Surely we can come up with a couple of parties that better represent the sentiments of the average American than this. How about he LIbertarian and the Green parties? Anything would be better than what we have now (well, almost...) -
