Priebus said shortening the primary process by moving up the national convention at which the nominee is typically selected to June and cutting the number of debates are "not an establishment takeover. This is using your brain. Everything's not a conspiracy."

Without some elaboration this sounds hysterical.

Well, remembering that in 2000 Rove and a lot of other establishment Republicans were trying to clear the field for Bush, I think the measures Preibus is proposing could certainly help the establishment. An establishment candidate who can raise a lot of money early can already run over lesser funded conservative/base candidates. Shortening the primary season and cutting the number of debates could accentuate that establishment advantage.

Could be a conspiracy.
