WTF is wrong with Kentucky?

Paul Rand is leading in the GOP primary. Let’s meet him, shall we?

First off, he doesn’t like the Americans with Disabilities Act because he doesn’t think it is fair to the business owner:

PAUL: You know a lot of things on employment ought to be done locally. You know, people finding out right or wrong locally. You know, some of the things, for example we can come up with common sense solutions — like for example if you have a three story building and you have someone apply for a job, you get them a job on the first floor if they’re in a wheelchair as supposed to making the person who owns the business put an elevator in, you know what I mean? So things like that aren’t fair to the business owner. […]

But then things get a little more interesting with Mr. Paul when he gets asked a question about militias, with whom he is very closely associated. He even refers to some of the Open Carry nutters as his Private Security Detail.

Q: Do you think Americans, based on the 2nd Amendment, do you think they have a Constitutional right to violently overthrow the government?

PAUL STAFFER: Alright, we’ll have to stop recording.

Wisely, his staffer knows not to let him go there. Jeebus. This jackass might end up being the next Senator from Kentucky.

UPDATE 1: Rand Paul wins the Kentucky primary.

    This is a place of business? Come on!

    The first time those poor people get a floor show to take their minds of the ptomaine they were probably ingesting, and he wants to shut it down for fear that the nutter he’s guiding toward a life at the public trough is teetering over the cusp of endorsing sedition.


    As a personal aside, I haven’t seen a restaurant like that since they condemned the “Food & Eats” at Punkiedoodle Corners, circa 1970.


  2. It’s for Bunnings seat, so it’s like a draw, right?

    I went to a school with a guy who inherited his dad’s business. He was a gung-ho Bushie and was bitching about having to spend money for handicapped access for the entrance and the restrooms. Said it made no sense because he had no employees with limited mobility disabilities. I said to him that he would most likely reject a job candidate that needed wheelchair access (if they even made it inside for the interview) and that there were going to be an awful lot more returning veterans from the wars he said he so patriotically supported. They could be a vendor trying to do business with him after going through whatever grueling physical therapy their injuries required that allowed them to try to regain some sense of normalcy. He was shutting the doors to potentially far more people than just those who might try to find employment at his company.

    He didn’t really have much of an answer. He just kind of shrugged.

    talk to Texans about hypocrisy. The next Governor of Texas may very well be wheel-chair-bound Republican Greg Abbott. As Attorney General, Abbott fought the feds in court so Texas wouldn’t have to make Texas government buildings meet ADA requirements. Of course before Abbott rolled into his new government offices and became anti-ADA he had all the doors widened, ramps installed and generally pimped his place out ADA style.
