Rand Paul, Dark Prince of the Right's Bladerunner Future

NOT RANDYRand Paul, son of Ron Paul, whose real first name is Randal and so you shouldn't worry too much about the whole Ayn Rand thing, honest, is running for Senate in Kentucky and also he is kind of a downer. "Rand Paul's stump speech can be a downer. Although he is not above offering some anti-Obama red meat — 'Sarah Palin said he's been palling around with terrorists; now he's palling around with the world's communists' — his remarks drift into dark idiosyncrasy: He criticizes population-control policies by saying governments fear 'too many breathers,' as in humans. He reminds supporters that the 'Bridge to Nowhere' was built by earmarks from Republican senators in Palin's own state and mourns a system so broken that 'I'm not sure you can elect enough good people to fix it — I mean, I'm really concerned about it.'" He has seen too much, too soon, this man, and knows the sad scary future of the human race of bloodbags in bondage to the machines soon to come.

Just what America needs, another Skinjob running for office.

For me, Rand is today's Political Punxsutawney Phil.

"a shirt covered with articles of the Constitution".

I fear too many mouth-breathers.

I think what's going on here is that the Republicans are moving out of their noisy, randomly violent, hyperactive late childhood and into a moody, emogoth tween phase. I'm predicting a lot of hair dye and baggy black cargo pants at their next convention. KUO: I'm afraid that their new tongue piercings will only exacerbate the mouth-breathing.

"Hey! Where's the funeral?"

Oh, IF ONLY. Exult in the job you ultimately landed, friend.

OK, OK, but does he have a blimp?

It's goofy, I know, but I always get Ron Paul confused with Ross Perot, whom I confused with that guy who sold the clean chickens, who I always mixed up with Orville Redenbacher, who for the longest time I thought was John Anderson.

So, yeah, I would vote for him.

I will vote for the guy who lives in my popcorn box.

First reference to Mickey Rourke or "Diner" I've heard all day.

avalon was a lovely movie.

Wait, his name is "Randal" with one L? That's even worse than it being "Rand." At least if it were Rand it would be spelled correctly.

that final comment- the funny one about the machines- not funny.

i just read about a group of researchers who programmed a robot to hunt other robots. it was a learning robot, so, when they grouped it with others of its ilk, they learned how to cooperate- to kill other robots.
then i read about a guy who made a life-size robot cheetah, and i think, do these people want to die that much? have the preponderance of bad sci-fi flicks taught us nothing? soon, we will all be tom selleck in Runaway.

Things are rough all over, Randyboy, things are rough all over. Stay gold.

you mean, stay gold standard
