Famous plagiarist, Ayn Rand Fanboi and Hair Club for Men most wanted list designate Sen. Aqua Buddha had what can only be described as a bad week. It started off bad and it became worse. Let’s marvel at it.
It started with Rand Paul lying about cutting aid to Israel. You see he was for unconditionally cutting it just a few years ago, and now he claims he isn’t and never was. It was such a bold-faced lie that even Manchurian Columnist Ann Coulter had to comment:
Paul’s lie about cutting aid to Israel got the attention of the bright kids at Tiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks Charlie!), who produced a longish piece on his various flip-flops.
The Daily Banter, which is not one to mince words, produced a long piece that included a 15-point list of reasons not to trust Rand Paul.
And all this happened BEFORE Rand Paul ran away from some DREAMers…
…whom he later disdained/described as doing a Kamikaze interview.
Which then leads us to the fun Brother Pierce has had with his blog’s 5-minute rule:
America’s brogressive love-puppet speaks the weaselspeak like a native, doesn’t he? He doesn’t want any contact with the berating scofflaws, but he wants them to have work permits, but not in-state tuition. In four or five days, he will likely reverse all three of these reversals of positions. He will feel very strongly all three ways and, also, free pot! All in all, I am disinclined to agree with my friend Bob Draper that we are living through the libertarian moment, at least as represented by Senator Aqua Buddha. This is because “the libertarian moment” is a scam.
And then there is Driftglass, who is creating a meme all on his own.
But here’s the point to this round-up of bad news for Sen. Aqua Buddha: he remains the (current) front-runner for the 2016 Goat Rodeo, and he appears to have taken some positions that are appealing to the Dims. But does he really believe any of them and will he believe any of these things 5 minutes from now? He is a man without principles who will say whatever he needs to say for a news cycle.
And even if, like me, you are firmly opposed to the NSA wiretapping us and all the other ill they do and so Rand appears favorably to you, you have to look at all the other reactionary stuff that goes along with it. And even then, recall that Rand Paul thinks using drones on bank robbers is a fine use of that technology. The man is a fraud even on his signature issue.
The Daily Banter link above is a good place to start if you want to see the many faces of Rand Paul.
