Back Roads to the White House: Absence makes the fans grow louder

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

We're not sure what form it's going to take, but trouble could be
headed to Des Moines, Iowa, next week. Why? Because blogroots darling,
Republican Rep. Ron Paul, has been excluded from a candidate forum on
June 30 and his fans are burning up "the Internets" pledging to make a
show of force. "Let's make all the news be about Ron Paul so that
(the) event is a side note," someone posted at the entry on
the growing brouhaha. The Des Moines Register's intrepid reporter,
Thomas Beaumont, has the story today: "The decision by a tax watchdog
group in Iowa to keep some presidential candidates from attending its
political forum in Des Moines next week has led to a barrage of angry
responses from supporters of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, one of the
Republicans seeking the GOP nomination. Paul, a Texas congressman,
will not be among the six GOP candidates scheduled to speak at the
June 30 event in Des Moines. The forum at Hy-Vee Hall is jointly
sponsored by the Iowa Christian Alliance."
