    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    I guess they voted for Romney, didn't they?

    90% did which is significantly less than the 99% Bush and McCaine received.

    *curious* How did the last 10% split?

    90-95% for Ron Paul, a few for Santorum, a couple undecided, and one for Bachmann.

    Paul had enough delegates to be nominated on the floor and be given an opportunity to give a non-Romney approved speech. Unfortunately and predictably the RNC pulled strings, manipulated the rules and pulled out all the stops to deny Paul a nomination.

    Edit: video of the RNC forcing rule changes down the throats of the delegation: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/3838576&newclip

    Wow. Ron Paul delegates protesting, Romney pushing for a rule change that lets him pick the delegates personally, and throwing peanuts at black people and calling them "animals." I guess the RNC didn't wanna wait for the hurricane for this to be a disaster.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Wow. I think no's definitely won in the volume scale in that clip.

    I wonder how Issac is going to affect it.

    Lol I was looking for articles talking about the impact and found this
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    That is just amazing - not only the temerity with which Boehner ignores the inconvenient votes, but also that this primitive voting method is used at all.
