Yesterday on CNN, Congressman and GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul accused Rick Santorum of being "addicted" to conspiracies.

But is it really a conspiracy to think Paul is protecting Romney to get his son, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, on the ballot as Romney's vice presidential pick should Romney win the nomination?

FLASHBACK: Rand Paul Says 'It Would Be An Honor' if Romney Asked Him to be VP

Kentucky’s junior senator says it would be an honor to be considered as a possible running mate for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Senator Rand Paul first discussed his higher aspirations at the beginning of this year. He said he wouldn’t close the door on being a Vice Presidential candidate. After a speech in Louisville today, Paul held that door firmly open, saying he wants to be part of the national debate.

Paul’s name has swirled as a possible pick that would give Romney points with the Tea Party. When asked directly what he would say if Romney made the offer, Paul tried to punt.

“I don’t know if I can answer that question, but I can say it would be an honor to be considered,” he said.

Combine those comments with the fact that Ron Paul hasn't attacked Mitt Romney directly much this campaign cycle and you've got a match.
