Today campaign insiders admitted to reporters that Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican president candidate, meant to ask Ron Paul to be his running mate but accidentally dialed Paul Ryan.
The 65-year old presidential candidate released a statement saying "I used to have contacts sorted 'Last, Name' on my Rolodex but on this iPhone thing it's 'First, Last.'" Inquiries about whether the candidate planned to dump Paul Ryan from the campaign and nominate Ron Paul were met with stonewalling.
Political analysts say it doesn't really matter who gets the nomination as the Ron Paul Revolution crowd will vote for anyone who throws them a few libertarian bones about lowers or a nugget of a conspiracy theory. Insiders have even suggest Paul Ryan may have more appeal to the Birthers, 9/11 truthers, and other conspiracy theorists because of his ties to a government conspiracy to defraud investors.
