In the biggest upset in political history, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has announced that he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign. No one could have predicted the Republican superstar’s exit after consistently polling less than one percent.

The American public will never forget Jindal’s invaluable Republican undercard debate performance; unless, of course, no one watched it.

With Jindal’s suspension, competition is looking tight as the number of GOP candidates shrinks from a daunting 15 to a manageable 14.

Never fear, Jindal fans, as Bobby isn’t swearing off of politics forever, instead saying that the 2016 race is just “not [his] time.”

Here’s to hoping that Jindal’s time never comes.
