Last night, Ron Paul dropped a 300 megaton bomb of harsh acceptance on his supporters…
In an email sent to supporters late last night, the Texas congressman said by the time the Republican National Convention comes around, he won't have sufficient delegates to secure the nomination.
"When it is all said and done, we will likely have as many as 500 supporters as delegates on the Convention floor," Paul wrote, according to CNN. "That is just over 20 percent! And while this total is not enough to win the nomination, it puts us in a tremendous position to grow our movement and shape the future of the GOP!"
An announcement like this obviously comes as a huge shock and a crushing disappointment to any of us who lack even the most slender of tethers to reality.
So, any Ron Paul-supporting friends of yours can probably use some cheering up today.
