    Considering the registered Republican base that gave us McCain/Palin 08, I'd say what's happening today is quite an improvement.

    Really? Because I'm pretty sure it was the war hero neoconservatism and Isreal first pandering that won over tools such as yourself.

    I'm sure that there are some voters who are deliberately planning to support a weak or divisive candidate, but I expect that this accounts for very little of Paul's support. Mostly, the Democrats who vote for him will be doing so because they support at least some of his policies.

    The RNC could make it more difficult for Democrats to vote in their primaries or caucuses (by ending open primaries and/or making it more difficult to switch registration at the last minute). They don't do that because they know that their candidate will ultimately have to appeal to people who aren't registered Republicans. Allowing such people to participate to a degree in their primary caucus ensures that a stronger general election candidate will usually be chosen.
