Dear Rand Paul: Do Us All a Favor – Just Stop Talking and Go Away

rand-paul-11Oh Rand Paul, what an absolute joke you’ve become.  Not that I ever took you seriously, but wow – things have gotten bad.  I still think Texas Senator Ted Cruz is a much bigger lunatic than you are, but you’re definitely a sadder character.

As much as I can’t stand Ted Cruz, at least he’s consistent.  I mean, he’s a blatant liar (and possibly insane), but his pointless propaganda at least seems to stem from a consistent set of “beliefs” – even if those beliefs seem to be shaped in some alternate dimension that only exists in the minds of delusional tea party voters and himself.

But when it comes to you, Senator Paul, you just seem utterly clueless.  You’re the perfect example of a spoiled kid who’s only in the position you’re in because of who your father is.  You try desperately to balance the act of pandering to your father’s “Paulbots” while still pandering to the other tea party Republicans you know you need to win over if you ever expect to be president – and you fail miserably at it.

Oh, and you’ll never be president.  I can pretty much guarantee that.

But it seems everything to do with you is some kind of a sideshow.  It’s almost like you get into meetings with people to brainstorm what ridiculous statement you should blurt out in a desperate attempt to get some kind of media attention.

Whether it was your pointless filibuster last year which was a clear stunt aimed at giving you momentum to win a straw poll at the upcoming CPAC event, or the numerous times you were caught plagiarizing, you just don’t seem able to get out of your own way.

More recently it was your ridiculous attempt to attack Hillary Clinton by bringing up the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Then I read yesterday about some claims you made about how more than half of all students in law, dental or medical schools were female.  A claim which Politifact rated as “False.”

According to Politifact, not only do women not comprise the majority of enrollees in any of those schools – their numbers are actually falling.

You’ve been desperately trying to defend the horrible Republican record on women, but the problem is nothing you’ve said has made any sense.

Nothing quite like trying to defend your party’s record on women – by not being able to cite any factual or logical instances which support your stance.

Your feeble attempts to defend Republicans on women’s rights are of course in response to the sexist comments made earlier by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, when he basically said Democrats didn’t believe women couldn’t control their own libido when referencing the female need for birth control.

So you’re apparently trying to defend that record by lying or using ridiculous references which are completely unrelated.

Who the heck voted for you?  Then again, who the heck voted for Ted Cruz?  It shocks me people like you and Cruz somehow not only made it out of your primaries, but then actually got elected as United States senators.

With almost every statement you make, you continue to prove that you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.  You’re nothing more than a spoiled child who’s ridden his fathers coattails to his own “success.”

Because I can promise you one thing – if your last name wasn’t “Paul” and your father wasn’t a former Texas congressman, you sure as heck wouldn’t be a U.S. Senator.
