GOP convention: It's getting a little chaotic in there...

As predicted, things are starting to get lively at the state Republican convention in Spokane. The delegates have this morning voted whether to add an unplanned speaker (he got to speak) and whether to throw out the Skagit delegation (denied, but with a flurry of points of order.) Chairman Luke Esser is trying to keep order, and the Roberts Rules book is sure getting a workout. Some members of the crowd, one delegate says, are "confused as hell."
