Rand Paul dropped out of the 2016 president race on Wednesday, short on cash and support, two days after finishing with under 5 percent in the Iowa caucuses — less than one quarter of the support his father had drawn four years earlier.
You know I never understood what attracted the Ron Paul support, but whatever it was that he had it skipped a generation.
Rand Paul says some things that I like hearing from the GOP, such as putting an end to military intervention in other countries, and protecting our privacy here at home.
But then he says those other Rand Paul things, and that essentially erases any possible respect that most Americans might feel for him.
Now the only question to be asked is "Who's next?"
Update: Well I guess we know who's next.

Rick Santorum has suspended his 2016 presidential bid, according to multiple media reports.
Mr. Santorum will both leave the race and make an endorsement, likely making the announcement Wednesday night on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” CNN reported.
Usually I don't typically get the chance to combine two candidates quitting the race in one post, but damn these guys are dropping like flies today!
Okay anybody want to predict the next one?
