Rand Paul: I'm like MLK for smoking in restaurants that discriminate against black people

Dear Kentucky, please don't be stupid and elect this clown.

In an op-ed that was published in the Bowling Green Daily News, Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul claimed that he is against smoking bans in restaurants, against mandating that restaurants list calorie and fat contents in their products, and against slavery. Imagine that! It takes really bravery nowadays for a Republican in 2010 to be firmly against slavery!

Yes, Rand Paul is a DOCTOR who is pro smoking and pro fatty, high calorie foods. Where the hell do they find these people? Does the Republican Senate Campaign Committee just ask the members of their caucus to pick a number between 1 and 100, and anyone who knows a number between 1 and 100 gets to run for Senate in their state?

Go below the fold to see what FAILtastic ideas Rand Paul's free market unregulated paradise can offer you!

Glenn Beck: Hammerhead

From the blog of Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners:

Last week, when radio and television talk show host Glenn Beck said that social justice is a “code word” for Communism and Nazism, and urged people to leave their churches if they teach social justice, I decided that message needed to be challenged.


In fact, on Friday, I sent Glenn a letter proposing that the two of us sit down together and have an open and public discussion on what social justice really means and how Christians are called to engage in the struggle for justice. I said, “let’s make this a civil dialogue and not engage in personal attacks on each other — which is never helpful in trying to sort out what is true. So let’s talk about the heart of the matter.”

Beck, the unstable lunatic that he is, responded on-air yesterday, the Ides of March. An excerpt of his response, again from Wallis's blog:

So Jim, I just wanted to pass this on to you. In my time I will respond — my time, well, kind of like God’s time, might be a day, might be a week to you, I’m not sure. But I’m going to get to it in my time, not your time. So you go ahead and you continue to do your protest thing, and that’s great. I love it. But just know — the hammer is coming, because little do you know, for eight weeks, we’ve been compiling information on you, your cute little organization, and all the other cute little people that are with you. And when the hammer comes, it’s going to be hammering hard and all through the night, over and over…

Um, sure Glenn.

You're a perfect example of insanity and extremism, living in a world fabricated to achieve maximum delusion.

Go get 'em.

On a final, ending note, from Lordrag of DelphiForums -- my new favorite quote about Beck:

When Glenn Becks looks into the Abyss, the Abyss shudders, and says, 'That guy is fuckin creepy.'

Yeah, he is.
