Here we go again, Schröedinger’s Candidate Rand Paul manages again to contradict himself, even in silence and while on Spring Break! (which we assume is an Aqua Buddha holiday?) Let’s open Schröedinger’s Box!
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is taking a break from the media to spend time with his family ahead of his likely White House announcement next week.
The Hill reached out to a representative at Paul’s leadership PAC to find out where the Kentucky Republican stands on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which has created a firestorm in Indiana since a version was signed into law last week.
“Senator Paul is out of pocket with family and not doing any media all week long,” the representative responded.
But what’s that you said on Wednesday, Sen. Paul? According to Tiger Beat on the Potomac:
“Sen. Paul supports removing regulatory barriers to the use of ethanol and other renewable fuels, which would likely have the effect of growing the use of these environmentally friendly fuels. He does not support the government telling consumers or businesses what type of fuel they must use or sell,” an aide said on Wednesday.
Well of course, that’s about Iowa.
I’ve never heard “out of pocket” being used this way. But Urban Dictionary comes to the rescue: “Out of pocket: Paid from personal funds. Somehow over the past half year or so, ‘out of pocket’ has become a new business catchphrase meaning ‘unreachable, out of communication’, which is incorrect. ”
If you spend too much time out of pocket you’re going to get sacked.
Yeah, I struggle to understand the new meaning, until I realized the opposite meaning which suddenly makes sense: IN (your) Pocket.
Seems bizarrely accurate for Rand Paul, so there must be a catch.
Our Rand only wears Isfahan, paid for by those who have him In Pocket.
How many times is he going to luck out in that damned box!!!??? If he was a cat we’d be up to our eyeballs in dead radioactive felines…
By the time he gets back in to whoever’s pocket, all this religious freedumb crap will have blown over. Or so he thinks.
What else could a libertarian apostate do other than slink off into a dark corner and count his bitcoins?
If he tries to ride in the goat rodeo and felate the theocrats he alienates the database his daddy built up (and probably sold to him.)
If he tries to pander to the database he’ll piss off the theocrats and they probably won’t forgive him, again.
Btw… What did Kentucky decide about him being on the ballot for two offices simultaneously?
