“I’m very, very concerned that if you solicit votes from typically non-voters, that you will affect and change the outcome.”
— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in a Fox Business interview.
“The administration tore up the Iran agreement, placed a significant, severe embargo on Iran, and then killed one of their major generals — nobody in their right mind would actually think that that would lead to negotiations. So when Secretary of State Pompeo’s out there saying, ‘Well, maximum pressure, our goal is to get them back to the negotiating table,’ no naive child would believe that, you would have to be brain-dead to believe that.”
— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), on CNN.
With impeachment, it looks like Donald Trump’s heading for a fall.
And most Republicans don’t seem to be helping much at all.
But if you want to out the whistleblower,
Just turn to a rhetorical missile-thrower,
That smarmy libertarian asshole, Rand Paul.
“Many folks think that Rand Paul can’t be beat, they’re worried he might be too well-liked. I don’t buy that. Just ask his neighbor. He can be beaten.”
— Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes (D), quoted by WHAS-TV.
We’re accustomed to Rand Paul, the Libertarian jackanape,
And many’s the time we’ve been tempted to crack his adamantine pate.
But in a spat with his neighbor,
Rand’s ribs were belabored.
Not over politics, but in a trivial dispute over landscape.
“Why do we have a Second Amendment? It’s not to shoot deer. It’s to shoot at the government when it becomes tyrannical!”
— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), on Twitter, June 23, 2016.
“While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked. The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different.”
— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), quoted by The Hill, after the U.S. launched airstrikes in Syria.
Rand Paul just mounted an invasion
With media alerted to the occasion.
He charged ‘cross the Hill
To wrest free the Obamacare bill,
But ’twas gone — though Rand Paul was not chastened.
