I’ll try to offer some commentary throughout the evening, but the real fun will be in the comment thread….
Lil’ Marco has “suspended” his campaign after losing his home state of Florida.
What’s with this “We are ‘suspending’ the campaign” bullshit. “We” are not. You (singular) are. “Suspend” is a weasel word. Why can’t these weasels tell it like it is: “I’m quitting”, “I am dropping out of the race”, “I surrender to Mr. Drumpf”.
Oh…that’s right. They’re fucking weasels.

Rubio's defeat is not only the end of his candidacy. It's a total blow to the post-2012 GOP reboot project, from autopsy to reform con mvmt.
