Libertarians against Ron Paul

This disussion thread, in which a Ron Paul fan tries to convince members of the Libertarian Party of Texas to get their candidate in the 14th CD to drop out of the race on the grounds that it will improve Paul's chances against Democrat Shane Sklar is pretty darned funny, if a bit painful for all of the Nader/Gore flashbacks it keeps bringing up. The idea of a Libertarian candidate running against Ron Paul in the first place is humorous enough - it's like the Greens running someone against Barbara Lee. Read, enjoy, and maybe drop a few dimes on Sklar when you're done.

Ah, you fixed it. Much better.

Looks to me like the Libs aren't actually going to run Flynn against Paul....I got the impression Paul has a contested primary, and that the Lib convention occurs after the primary. So if Paul somehow loses the GOP primary, the Libs can nominate Flynn; otherwise, the Libs can nominate "NOTA" (None Of The Above) and not have a candidate in this race.

Irony alert: you know who came up with the "NOTA" idea? Ralph Nader, believe it or not....
