This one is positively criminal!

by Rich Miles

Well, we've all watched Rand Paul stumble, slash, lie and apologize his way through this campaign, and I don't know about you, but it makes me tired just to watch him. I want the campaign to be over so I don't have to wake up almost daily to his latest faux pas or lie or idiocy or whatever.

But this one - the moronic remark du jour - is just too much. He's crossed over the line from stupidity to genuinely aiding and abetting criminal behavior. My friend Bob over at Blue Bluegrass has detailed for us today (8/13) how stupid Rand has declared that the drug problem in eastern Kentucky is not a pressing issue.

I mean, what kind of total moron would say such a thing? Surely no one who has ever been to Eastern Kentucky for longer than 5 minutes. Surely no one who has any friends or relatives in that part of the state (or indeed, anywhere in the state). Surely no one who has ever read a state-based newspaper with a bureau in the eastern half of the state.

Surely no one with an effing BRAIN IN HIS HEAD.

I mean, fer cryin' out loud, there were 114 overdose deaths in the 21-county area in the first - wait for it - TWO MONTHS of this year!! And Bubblehead Paul thinks that Kentuckians won't miss the Operation UNITE anti-drug task force because most of us haven't even heard of it. And most of the voters in the region will vote for him because he and they are socially and fiscally conservative.

While the high-powered rifle fire is passing through their homes....

I'm serious - this remark from Rand Paul is no less than aiding and abetting criminal enterprise. In order to take a tiny little bit of pressure off the federal budget, we should let an extremely vicious and ruthless criminal element just ply their trade unimpeded. It's hard to interpret this any other way. Except perhaps that Rand doesn't think the loss of an average 57 Kentuckians a month, nearly 2 a DAY, to overdoses is any big deal.

Does this anger you? Does it anger you even a bit worse that the man who said all this now wants your vote in getting him elected to the Federal legislature, where he can actually vote on such actions and perhaps help them get passed?

Is he going to apologize for this one too? And if so, Republicans, are you going to let the apology count?

Or is it time yet to kick this clown to the curb? Hasn't anyone else gotten as sick of this little dweeb as I have?

I simply don't know where else to go with this. I can't imagine an adult saying something like this. But then, we're not really sure Rand Paul is an adult.

Whup his ass, Jack. PLEASE!!!!!

Rand Paul is just like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and many other prominent far-right teabagger types. They're all fast and loose with the facts (and their mouths), they have a twisted perspective on the world, they're self-centered, and woefully ignorant. These people used to be called crackpots. Now we call them conservative Republicans.

This country and the world cannot afford having mediocrities like these in positions of power.
