(Newser) – Surf over to, and you'll pretty quickly realize that it's not a Romney campaign site. It features a link to Romney's tax returns, a link to a list of his top contributors, and the message, "This site, much like Mitt Romney himself, is for sale to the highest bidder." That last bit is the point. The site is owned by enterprising Ron Paul fan Peter Crowley, Roll Call reports, and he wants at least $5,000 for it.

"RomneyRyan was an educated guess, one that I was always glad I had acquired," Crowley says. "But in the end I also bought about 70 other combinations that obviously never came to fruition, ones involving Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, but proudly never Sarah Palin." He says he'll sell to anyone, though he'd be particularly pleased to sell it to Paul. But Crowley wasn't always a Paul fan; he once worked as an intern for Democrat Jim McGovern's campaign.

Isn't this the Republican way? A small business man with entrepreneurial talent!

Now watch as the ignorant little righties completely ignore the fact that Romney's top 5 contributors are banks. Their ignorance knows no limits.
