This isn't the zaniest idea I've ever had

Here goes...We rent a space in Maine and hold our own mock convention. We have the Maine delegates as guest speakers and a tribute video for Rmoney. We could do a chip-in, money bomb. We break rules and and reject any opposition. It could be a spoof like SNL. Maybe we could get Sarah Palin to play Tina Fey. Instead of hoping someone would make a movie, we could do our own. I know, "please put down the long neck"

The slogan (on road signs) is, "Maine - the way life should be"

There's that to exploit somehow. For instance, in Vinalhaven, Maine there's a takeoff on that,

Maine - the way life should be
Vinalhaven - the way Maine should be

Maybe...
Maine - the way life should be
LE PAGE - the way GOVERNORS should be

On the rules committee could be someone wearing a Putin mask

A video tribute to Romney could have debate clips and also people interviewed saying (lovingly) how he's really the SAME as Obama on monetary policy, the national debt, personal liberties, and foreign policy. Included could be the "president of China" thanking Ryan for voting for the bailouts - after that clip of General Motors noting that $80 Billion went to GM and Chrysler, and the GM CEO telling the Chinese how now 7 out of 10 GM cars is made outside the U.S., saying how GM is committed to working "in China, with China, and FOR China." Oh, heck, the things to be included are endless.

I'm just thinking out loud here

the floor would consist of the 6 state plurality for Dr. Paul. The other 4 delegates would be fat guys wearing suits minus a tie which was confiscated upon entry. They would be seated separate and in the back. According to the rules they could nominate Mitt from the floor. But, that would be rejected because they don't meet the weight restriction we just invented. Besides taking their ties, they were given wedgies cause there shorts were exposed. Two venders one giving away free subs with noone in line, the other selling R.P. chocolate bars with the line out the door. Feel free to pile on.

And how about all the Romney people arrive

wearing Romney hats and lapels and holding Romney signs. And then on the video screen, played repeatedly in a LOOP, we make them watch that big humorless RNC/Romney woman nastily grabbing the Ron Paul sign out of a Ron Paul delegate's hand. As it plays, you see the Romney people looking sheepish, shrugging and all, as if to say, "Hey, it wasn't my fault." And then we have our own big humorless woman stand in front and hold out a carton in front of her (as if to say, "Well?"). And one by one the Romney people frown but come up and throw their Romney hats and signs and buttons into the box. All the while, the woman is looking more and more puzzled. When they're all back sitting in their seats, unidentifiable as Romney supporters (except for their ill-fitting clothing), the woman says, "I don't know why you'd want to not show your support for Romney, but, okay. I was offering you a Ron Paul candy bar just to show there were no hard feelings." She digs under the stuff and takes out a bar of chocolate, saying, "Well, I'm having one!" Someone else takes the box and leaves the room, as the Romney supporters yell, "Wait! You mean, we didn't have to---" And the woman smiles and says, "No! We're not afraid of diversity of opinion here!" And they say, "Well then, give us our stuff back!" The other individual re-enters the room. "Too late. It's all in the dumpster." And they say, "Well, can we still have the candy?" And the person says, "Sorry. Gave it away."

Live From Maine-Its the GOP Soviets

Great idea...maybe Clint Eastwood would show up and play a new part, Sarah Palin, and some SNL members.

See if Jay Leno would put it on his show. Jay is a Republican.

I look forward to seeing this.

We need to press on...WE can make a difference in November.

Contact the Tonight Show

Someone quick, call the Tonight Show in beautiful downtown Burbank. Tell them what you are doing, ask to be on the show. Or have everyone request you all be on the show, the delegates from Maine.

Go to the website, click on Contact and see where to write. Maybe he will have them on.

As goes Maine, So Goes the Nation---great slogan for all of us to use.

Awesome idea

We could also have Jar Jar Binks play the part of Joe Biden or Rick Perry. It would be awesome.

Theres potential here for media attention.

The media is what we always need to target.

Satire to the max.

This isn't zany, its marketing.

Zany!!!

I love it!

Instead of a yacht, we could party on lobster boats.
