Bob Barr?!?

The loud derisive jeers directed at Bob Barr supporters parading before their fellow party members was among the more memorable moments of the Libertarian Convention today. Mr. Barr's supporters chose to do so "spontaneously" in the transition between the various candidates' nomination pitches and the nominating speeches from each states' delegations. That they chose to do so during Bill Redpath's instruction to the delegations could not have gone over well with the LNC's Chairman.

Imagine my surprise when hours later, the Libertarian Party chose Barr as its 2008 Presidential Candidate.
