I thought it was very cool to see Ron Paul get the nod at CPAC. Nice to see the one true conservative actually get the nod there.
But the reception that the Paul announcement received, more boos than cheers, really displayed what the Republicans think of the teabag movement. They want to corral the teabagger's queer rage and aim it at the Democrats, but if they do anything to upset a more traditional Republican candidate, well, the Republicans will kick them to the curb. The Republicans blow a lot of smoke about conservative purity, but when the one true conservative gets a small win, well, we hear boos.
The Republicans will do whatever they can to hijack the teabag movement. Be careful you teabagger people with your odd and misguided name; watch your backs.
