BREAKING NEWS: Ron Paul Still Running For Some Reason

Even though Ron Paul continued his losing streak of 0 primary wins in his third time running for president, the soon to be ex-congressman from Texas still vows to continue his futile efforts to the GOP convention:

Rep. Ron Paul will not step aside even if Mitt Romney soon clinches the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the Republican presidential nomination, the candidate said Monday.

“If tomorrow, Romney had the absolute number, I would probably continue in a modified way to maximize the number of delegates to go to the convention,” Paul said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” adding that his supporters insist he stay in the running.

A couple of takeaways:

1. If you are still sending Ron Paul money then go into your kitchen, grab a frying pan, and hit yourself square in the face. Then go to your toilet, take out your wallet, empty it into said toilet and flush. You will have made a more worthwhile investment.

2. Now that there is zero chance of Ron Paul ever becoming president, the Paul campaign has shifted their focus to getting as many delegates as possible to the RNC convention in order to influence the Republican Party platform:

[Paul campaign manager Jesse] Benton acknowledged the increasing possibility that Paul would not be the GOP nominee, but made clear that the “secondary goal of all of our political action [has been] getting limited-government, libertarian-leaning folks involved and taking over the party apparatus.”

Part of the plan for doing that is accumulating enough delegates to give the Texas congressman the necessary leverage in Tampa to mold the GOP platform to his taste. By finishing second in the delegate tally Tuesday night, Paul kept his hopes for doing so alive.
