They went deep into the weeds to find that straw, too: an obscure rule that almost certainly won’t be invoked at the convention and that can be fixed in an afternoon if anybody at the RNC decides that it’s worth fixing. More fundamentally, the entire scheme revolves around the willingness of a certain Texas Representative to blow up the convention, even if it means that said Representative’s son’s Senate career gets blighted by association in the process.
That will not happen. At this point, it suits nobody’s purposes in the GOP to have a contentious primary. That includes the people who were on the outside, last time: this time they’ve got a much better chance to get a seat at the table. To put it another way: what HuffPo is doing here is projecting its own desperate need to disrupt the Republican nomination process onto the rest of us. Which is funny, but not really valid.

PS: Best part of the article? “A Romney campaign adviser did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and neither did an RNC spokesman.”
…Good. Sarcastic, mocking laughter might have been personally satisfying, but it probably wouldn’t have been seen as being professional.
