Rand Paul

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!

Rand Paul to abolish Section 1 of 14th Amendment, ending birthright citizenship

Recently I have detailed the relationship that Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky and State Senator Russel Pearce of Arizona have with their Neo Nazi, white supremacist supporters.

That is why it was no surprise to me to learn today that Rand Paul told a Russian journalist that he opposes birth citizenship as protected under the 14th Amendment, or, as Russel Pearce calls it "anchor babies".

We’re the only country I know of that allows people to come in illegally have a baby and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop also.

Yeah, that's called the Section 1 of the 14th Amendment

Open Thread - Movin' on!

I am at the point where I can choose to live in a half empty house with only a computer and a lot of furniture (minus the drawers of "stuff" that are already moved) or live in a half empty house with a TV and no furniture inside (though we do have our patio furniture moved so we can sit outside). We load up the van and take it over every night and so far we have moved most of the small things we have. We rented a small moving truck to move the big things figuring on doing it in two loads but with so much already done we may just get everything left to fit in that one small truck for one last load.

Below the fold is some open thread stuff that is moving in the traditional and new media.

Rand Paul hires Ron's Nazi donation defender as new Campaign Manager & gets David Duke endorsement

Memo to Rand Paul, the jig is up.

A few days ago I posted about how Nazis and White Supremacists are campaigning for and donating to Rand Paul's Senatorial campaign

Paul named a former campaign consultant Jesse Benton as campaign manager for the November election. Benton worked for Paul's father, Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul, when he ran for president in 2008.

usatoday.com

Now here is the juicy part. It turns out that Jesse Benton was the guy who was the lead point man in issuing the non rejection of Ron Paul's Nazi donation that he received from Don Black, who is notorious as an ex KKK grand wizard and founder of the white supremacist website Stormfront.org

Nutty Tea Party Flavor Of The Day

I thought the last post on Palin and Paul would have been it... But, h/t to jimstaro, I believe this may be "The One":

Tea Party Candidate Claimed to Be the Messiah, Tried to Raise the Dead

Politicians aren't known for being the humblest bunch. But there's a Tea Party-backed candidate for Congress whose ego-boosting seems to have gone a step further than usual. Tim D'Annunzio, a Republican candidate in North Carolina's Eighth District, has actually claimed to be the Messiah, according to sources in court documents.

I do believe that it does not get much nuttier than that... Unless you count Palin's witch hunting maverickiness? Emphasis on the ickiness there...

Satirical Palin Media Attack Laps Reality

Providing even further proof that real life can be funnier than anything even The Onion can make up... Sarahcuda circles the "lamestream media" like a blind and toothless fish out of water:chasing her own tale:

Blasting 'lamestream media,' Palin attacks satirical article

A reader points out that one of the fed-up claims in Sarah Palin's defense of Nikki Haley -- that the "lamestream media" reported she was "living in the Hamptons" -- refers to a pretty blunt and obvious satire in a local New York publication, Dan's Papers.

Just be thankful that she is as clueless as a political and ideological foe as we could ever hope for. We can only hope for this kind of idiocy from her Kentucky ideological clone, Rand Paul.

SCANDAL! Rand Paul MUST return Neo-Nazi funds NOW and DENOUNCE Stormfront.org

[ed note - CM1]  Welcome MinistryOfTruth who has graciously accepted an invitation to post some material here. And enjoy! I know I do.

This must be seen across America. Stormfront.org, which was founded to support David Duke for senate by another KKK Grand Dragon, Don Black, has been promoting and contributing to Rand Paul's moneybombs. Palling around with WhiteSupremacists much?

That's a tweet from Don Black, head of the white supremacist group Stormfront. Wow.

~snip~

So, Trey Grayson should reject donations from Republicans who voted for the bailout........but it's okay for Rand Paul to accept donations from Stormfront? genuineGOPmom.blogspot.com

I will state this loudly and clearly. Over and over at the top of my Jewish lungs.

Rand Paul MUST return Neo-Nazi funds NOW and DENOUNCE Stormfront.org

But he can't. Democrats MUST turn 2010 into a referendum on Rand Paul. So, let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
