Why is the GOP Establishment so Scared of a Ron Paul Nomination?

Why is the GOP Establishment so scared of a Ron Paul nomination? Romney has it in the bag, Dr. Paul doesn't have a hope in hell. The conventional wisdom is they want to present the party 100% behind Romney. Gee, would acknowledging there was some competition for the job be that damaging? By sabotaging the Paul campaign throughout the process they exposed themselves as corrupt. If they played by the GOP rules with Ron Paul, there would be a minor contest, Romney would still have won, and most of the the Republican rank and file would fall in behind Romney. In a week it wouold all be forgotton. Hell, why don't the party elders just install the candidate by decree? Isn't that the way it is done in other totalitarian States?
