    Default Go Rand!

    Senator Paul is doing his best Mr. Smith Goes To Washington impersonation right now on the floor of the US Senate. He's filibustering the Brennan nomination. Tune in to CSPAN2 if you're interested.

    Whereas his dad played the outside scold castigating the GOP, Rand assuages fears that his positions clash with party doctrine. To explain his stand on foreign aid, he asks why the U.S. builds bridges in Egypt or Pakistan when our own infrastructure is crumbling. Unlike his father, he backs Iran sanctions and says a robust defense requires some military bases abroad.

    He's certainly marking the stations of the GOP cross: he recently toured Israel with evangelical leaders and party bosses from South Carolina and Iowa. He boasts a new super PAC, an entrenched network in key primary states and an e-mail list more than 2 million strong. And his publicity burst has caught the eye of GOP fundraisers. "Doors are open that weren't before," says a strategist close to Paul. "But them flirting isn't a date to the prom."

    And the faithful seem ready. In rural Kentucky, he was meeting with local business leaders on a factory floor when a property assessor named T.W. Todd remarked on Paul's improbably quick ascent from underdog to likely presidential candidate. "Don't believe everything you read on the Internet," Paul replied.

    "It's almost providential," Todd says later of Paul's rise. But, he adds, in a sputtering economy, after two wars, it's time for the rest of the Republican Party to take a fresh look at Paul's ideas. "Maybe they're not so crazy after all."

    [Dr. Rand - WaPo: “Paul plans to join a medical mission to Guatemala [this summer], where he will team up with eye surgeons, nurses and technicians from the University of Utah to visit Salamá, a small manufacturing and commercial center nestled between two mountain ranges 3,000 feet above sea level, north of Guatemala City.]

    That is nothing. Obama organized communities before he was President.

    I thought there might be some interest here because of this part:

    from the University of Utah
    but then I remembered this isn't UB5.

    Seriously?! Being a community organizer is fucking hard work. It is not some euphamistic easy job and I'm tired of people throwing that out there a pejorative.

    Rand Paul is assaulted by his liberal next door neighbor... WTF is wrong with liberals these days?

    Sen. Rand Paul’s injuries far more severe than initially thought

    Sen. Rand Paul is recovering from five broken ribs and bruises to his lungs, and it is unclear when he will return to Washington, aides said Sunday, signaling that injuries he sustained Friday are far more severe than initially thought.

    The second-term Republican senator from Kentucky and 2016 presidential candidate was attacked, allegedly by a next-door neighbor, Rene Boucher, 59, who was charged with fourth-degree assault.

    Paul made his first public comments since the incident on Sunday, tweeting that his wife “Kelley and I appreciate the overwhelming support after Friday’s unfortunate event. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.”

    Doug Stafford, Paul’s chief of staff, said in a statement Sunday that the senator has five rib fractures, including three displaced fractures, meaning the bones are partly or completely cracked.

    “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying,” Stafford said.
    [...]
    Jeff Jones, a registered nurse who worked with Boucher at the Bowling Green Medical Center, described Boucher’s politics as “liberal.”


    “He was active on social media and said some negative things about the Republican agenda,” Jones said.
    [...]
    Jim Bullington, a former member of the city commission, knows both men. He said Sunday that Boucher is divorced and lives alone. Bullington described Boucher as a socialist.


    “He’s pretty much the opposite of Rand Paul in every way,” Bullington said in an interview.


    The neighbors had been known to have “heated discussions” about health care, Bullington said, adding that Boucher is an advocate of a national health system.
    [...]

    A lot of liberals are getting bat sh*t crazy. They are thinking they can promote their way of thinking with violence. They need to revoke this one's medical license and lock him up.

    Fourth-degree assault? Just how many degrees are there?

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Some grumblings on Twitter about this story not sounding right. Rand ends up with relatively severe injuries, and the attacker is charged with fourth-degree assault?

    Rand was probably mouthing off some crazy libertarian theory which provoked the neighbor.

    Oh, in that case the crazy liberal was totally justified in breaking five of Rand's ribs.

    Rand must be some kind of pacifist.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Punching a libertarian should warrant 15 minutes of community service. Maybe 20.

    I mean, who hasn't this happened to? I can't remember the last time my altercations with libertarians didn't come to fisticuffs. They are cray cray.
