After Iowa, Republican Party finally figures out the fit has hit the shan, wants desperately not to get "Perot'd" by Ron Paul and his supporters. In fact, there are hints Republican operatives actually _understand_ Paul and his supporters as NOT "kooks." The key comment: "Paul agrees with us 85 percent of the time," said the operative, "and his supporters are earnest conservatives and libertarians who have no reason to support Obama in 2012 unless they're stepped on by our team."
Check out Luke Rudkowski asking Obama supporters about "Romney" policies. (not surprisingly, they immediately deride them.) Then watch what happens when they're told they're actually Obama's - they stumble - they make excuses and it just makes for some great video.
As a Ron Paul supporter I've been in a strange emotional place for several weeks now. I've finally determined that it probably is a case of "denial" fighting with cold, hard reality.

In 2008, a group of Ron Paul supporters founded RonPaul.com, a Ron Paul fan-site that became one of the leading sources for information about and support for the perennial Libertarian presidential candidate...
Yesterday morning, Ron Paul repaid their support by filing a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization, an agency of Paul's much-reviled United Nations, seeking the expropriation of both RonPaul.com and RonPaul.org from his supporters without any compensation.
"The cloud of dread and hopelessness that has hung over the California Republican Party convention was blown away at noon today as Republican Ron Paul supporters stormed the Hyatt in Burlingame and raised the atrium with cheers of wild enthusiasm."
If Ron Paul doesn't win the nomination as a Repube, he may well win the Presidency anyway. If the GOP machine participates in dirty politicking and screws Ron Paul over (like has been already going on), Dr. Paul will bail and run 3rd Party or independent. He'll pull support from all the Ron Paul supporters, disaffected Demoncrats, and those who have given up on voting because they've figured out it's a scam, until now.
