More Malakatude

That wacky Rand Paul is at it again. He’s called President Obama’s criticism of BP un-American. I am not making this up:

Kentucky’s Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul criticizedPresident Barack Obama‘s handling of the Gulf oil spill today as putting “his boot heel on the throat of BP” and “really un-American.”

Paul’s defense of the oil company came during an interview in which
he tried to explain his controversial take on civil rights law, an
issue that has overtaken his campaign since his victory in Tuesday’s
GOP primary.

“What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort
of, ‘I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,'” Rand said in an
interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” ‘I think that sounds
really un-American in his criticism of business.”

    Here’s what I don’t get about this nitwit. Why doesn’t he just go run a private company if he likes them so much? Why be in government, in such a tiny minority that you have no chance of getting your Fuck Government platform enacted, if you hate government?
    Also, let’s make sure that whatever happens, he and Sarah Palin do not breed. That subsequent race of Super Morons would make Idiocracy come true.

    Well, gosh, he runs hisprivate ophthalmology practice with no gover– oh, wait:

    …as former Bush speech writer David Frum noted, “Paul’s libertarianism stops where his pocketbook starts.” Frum highlighted a Wall Street Journal story from last week in which Paul said he doesn’t want to cut Medicare payments to doctors like himself, because “[p]hysicians should be allowed to make a comfortable living”:

    But on Thursday evening, the ophthalmologist from Bowling Green said there was one thing he would not cut: Medicare physician payments.
    In fact, Paul — who says 50% of his patients are on Medicare — wants to end cuts to physician payments under a program now in place called the sustained growth rate, or SGR. “Physicians should be allowed to make a comfortable living.

    In an interview on FoxNew.com’s Freedom Watch, Paul vowed he would never give up his “tea party values,” which apparently include pushing for self-serving legislation. As the Wonk Room’s Igor Volsky noted, Paul likely already makes a “comfortable living,” as the average salary for an ophthalmologist is $256,320.

    Never mind.

    Like most Repub politicians, this guy has to speak moronish in order to appeal to his voters. I doubt that any of us know what he really believes in, beyond helping himself gain money and power.
    By the way, is it discriminatory to insult moronic voters?

    Ever notice the ones who claim to hate government so much are the ones who will do anything to get elected or stay in office and BE the government? It’s almost a direct correlation.

    Uh, Rand, you know the “B” in BP stands for “British,” right?

  8. joejoejoe says:

    Democrats are dumb as shit if they don’t say ‘British Petroleum’ every fucking time they talk about these assholes. It’s a fucking political layup that makes kicking BP’s ass the American way. I know it just as easily could have been ExxonMobil but who gives a rat’s ass. You take the fucking free points and put them on the board. And fuck Rand Paul with a root beer float from an integrated lunch counter.
