Last night on Super Tuesday, Ron Paul won some modest second and third place finishes. But more importantly he remained in a GOP race that continues to be wide open.
So what he's trying to say here is that Paul didn't place dead last in every single race. Sure, he took last place in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California (he even lost to Giuliani there), Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia... but who's really counting anyway? I mean, Paul only finished dead last in 17 out of 22 possible states.
The other candidates are running out of money. Huckabee may push for his V.P. spot soon. Romney may reconsider his prospects and quit. McCain was bruised and battered yesterday despite his naked assertions that he is the front-runner.
Wait, I thought he just said the race was wide open? Okay, let's go with it, anyway. Huckabee and Romney may very well be down and out at this point. But, did he just say McCain was bruised and battered yesterday? Umm, perhaps I should list the current delegate count:
How much pot do you have to smoke to believe that these numbers suggest "naked assertions" that McCain is the front-runner? He has more than half of the delegates needed to win, gaining many of these delegates as a result of last night's primaries! Well, at least this guy looks at the glass half-full.
The rest of the Paulestinians are convinced that last night reeked of election fraud. Some posters at the Ron Paul War Room can't seem to comprehend that votes in online polls don't translate into actual votes. Just about everyone else is crying foul about the evil Diebold voting machines. Ah, denial-- the best defense against reality.
Surprisingly enough, the most optimistic development for sanity involves the Paul followers who now feel completely defeated. Check out this quote:

I want my f**king money back!
Ron Paul proved to be f**king loser. His campaign team must be audited ASAP!
F**k you Alex Jones with all your bullshit about the New World Order and other stupid crap
This nation is on a verge of disaster, so I’m moving to Canada
I can't imagine what goes through the mind of a layperson checking out the Ron Paul War Room. Wait, I know-- a stunning confirmation that Ron Paul is indeed a loon magnet.
BTW, thanks to Pat & James over at SLC for the awesome plug!
