Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. explaining the chilly reception he received at Howard University to The Courier-Journal.
Yes, he did basically blame reverse racism for why an audience at a historically Black college did not welcome his whitesplaining of history.
Ahem… May we have a word, GOP? Maybe you shouldn’t trot out the dude who criticized the Civil Rights Act as intruding on private business to do outreach to Black voters. Just a thought.
Pres. Barack Obama: ”But PLEASE?! Can’t we issue a strike on Sen. Rand Paul? He’s just a junior senator!”
Eric Holder: “Uh, Mr. President, he’s probably not the best test case for drone strikes in America. We should pick a more terroristy person.”
Pres. Barack Obama: “PLEASEEEEEE?!”
Eric Holder: “NO!”
And I’m covering this sliding scale of batshit completely sober.

I hear the high lasts longer than coke.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ken.
CHEYENNE, WY—After attempting to contain a living-room blaze started by a cigarette, card-carrying Libertarian Trent Jacobs reluctantly called the Cheyenne Fire Department Monday. “Although the community would do better to rely on an efficient, free-market fire-fighting service, the fact is that expensive, unnecessary public fire departments do exist,” Jacobs said. “Also, my house was burning down.” Jacobs did not offer to pay firefighters for their service.
Let’s not forget that Ms. Ayn Rand, notable spawner of objectivism, serial-killer admirer and speed freak, took Medicare and Social Security at the end of her life. She ultimately died of lung cancer and heart failure, after claiming cigarettes did not cause lung cancer and government warnings about cigarettes were a socialist conspiracy.
I wonder if Dr. Paul up there would be okay with changing the Hippocratic Oath to the Hypocratic Oath? It seems more appropriate.
Sen. Rand Paul is on Fox News saying he’s looked at the writings and “ramblings” of the shooter in Arizona, and he’s confident the shooter is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.
You are an ophthalmologist, Dr. Paul. You should know, ethically, you are not supposed to practice outside your specialty. This includes patients you have never seen, interviewed or met.
Imagine you get this phone call: “My vision is blurry, my eyes feel tired and I have a headache. Dr. Paul, is it that my glasses are out of date, am I not getting enough sleep, or could I even be having a stroke?” You’d tell the patient to come in or go to the emergency room, versus diagnosing over the phone, right? Even though you’re an ophthalmologist? You’d want to see the patient, even thought the problem is potentially within your specific specialty? Because anything else would be unethical and negligent.
Yeah, so diagnosing this person on Fox News is even worse. Plus, you’re perpetuating the stereotype that people with schizophrenia, even paranoid schizophrenia, are dangerous. Let’s lay off the armchair psychology, eh? I’ve spent several years working on my undergrad in psychology, and plan to apply to Clinical PhD programs. I won’t prescribe glasses when I’m done, you don’t diagnose mental illness. Deal?
Freedom’s just another word…
