More on the big doings on 'Big Love' and the Utah State Republican convention after the jump.

Could there have been a worse calamity than Marilyn forcing Bill to make an introduction to Tommy at the casino and the whole kit and kaboodle coming along ... only to find that Bill's mother and father chose that night to check out the place? The fact that Bill somehow managed to keep Margene and Barb and Daphne/Nicki from being found out as his wives is amazing...
