I'm in Tampa Florida for the RNC convention. As many people already know the first day has been postponed by hurricane Isac.
All I can say is if this is a hurricane then East Tennessee has one about every other week. Seriously. It's not that bad.
Some minor wind and intermittent light to medium rain. Nothing bad at all yet.
Ron Paul had a "big rally" last night at one of the local arenas and "Blues Travelers" John Popper played. I'm sorry I missed it. I love Blues Traveler but I didn't get the invite until almost 10 PM. I think the event went until 2 AM but I was already gassed from the drive down and about 5 hrs of sleep the previous few days. I skipped it.
Similar to the fears of the impending hurricane (Hat tip:Post Politics). The party establishment seem pretty up tight about the infusion of the Ron Paul supporters and are not sure what to do. They seem to have (What I see as) an unrealistic fear that he and his supporters will try to hijack the convention and nominate Ron Paul at the last second.
Well. it is a convention. I guess anything could happen. But as the establishment is often known to do, their over reaction will be worse and look worse, then anything the Ron Paul supporters could ever actually pull off.
