It's called a money bomb, and it's the unique province of Ron Paul supporters. This is getting to be one of the most bizarre phenomenons American politics has seen in decades.

Update: An email from the Paul campaign makes it clear that they're still going.

Is it possible to comprehend what we've done today? Earth-shattering, jaw-dropping... No matter which way you phrase it, Ron Paul is for real.
Over $3,800,000 raised.
More than 35,000 total donations.
1 message - and 1 candidate - unlike any other.
Can we keep our momentum going? The most successful fundraising day ever is John Kerry's $5.7 million. And that was on the day he accepted the Democratic nomination.
