Oh God: Ron Paul Plans Paultard Convention
As of now, your Wonkette still plans on attending the Republican National Convention in the Twin Cities in early September, because why not. But now there may be something interesting to do! That's right: Ron Paul will hold aRival Convention, same time, same cities, with every Paultard in the world. We're all over this shit.
Paul was denied a speaking spot at the "real" GOP Convention, which would make sense, since he doesn't support John McCain. Well, in truth, none of the Republicans "support" John McCain, but most are willing to run with it as long as he's in favor of Perpetual War, and McCain has indicated, every now and then, that he likes that. And Ron Paul stayed flat.
A Paul campaign aide said the Texas congressman hopes to pack about 11,000 supporters into the Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota on Sept. 2, which coincides with the second day of the Republican National Convention at the Xcel Energy Center in neighboring St. Paul.
Lovely. And in case either you forgot or we haven't mentioned it at all, the big Ron Paul March on Washington is scheduled for July 12. Here's the predictably comical "trailer":
Should Wonkette hold a barbecue for Paultard Pilgrims that week? BRING YR NUNCHUKS & SABRES.
