The Republican establishment has quelled the Ron Paul Revolution, at least for 2012. To dissuade Paul supporters from disrupting this week’s pomp and circumstance, the establishment made significant concessions on the platform to the Paul folks even before the group convened.

The 77-year-old, who retires from Congress at the end of this year, will speak Sunday at a rally being organized by his campaign at the University of South Florida Sun Dome. A big part of it will be to celebrate how much they’ve accomplished this cycle, even if they lost the nomination fight.

PaulTards are fun to laugh at but beyond that they are worthless.

Rand Paul actually has a future in this party, and his dad does not appear to want to screw it up for him.
