    RON PAUL'S OWN CONVENTION

    From NBC's Domenico Montanaro

    That thorn in the Republican establishment side is back.

    Ron Paul's campaign is planning an event at a "large venue" with a "sizable" crowd Sept. 2 -- the Tuesday of convention week -- in the St. Paul-Minneapolis area a couple of miles from the convention site.

    Paul spokesman Jesse Benton confirms this is certainly in the works but details are being worked out and not yet finalized. He wouldn't divulge the specific location because contracts have not yet been signed, though this report indicates Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota.

    Paul hopes to fill the arena the day before the vice presidential nominee would speak. On that Thursday, McCain will officially be selected as the nominee.

    Hyperbole. He isnt even an itch much less a thorn. He is quite insignificant in the overall spectrum.

    Sure. But partial anarchy isnt a move in the right direction either.
