Rand Paul Goes Rogue, Set To Deliver Unauthorized Tea Party Rebuttal To President Obama

Looney Toons


Ever since Michele Bachmann gave the “official” Tea Party response to the 2011 State of the Union address, it’s been obvious that the GOP has completely lost control of the monster it created. Following Bachmann’s bad joke of a speech, made infinitely worse by the fact that she was looking at the wrong camera, was Herman Cain’s attempt at glory in 2012. While not as terrible as Bachmann’s performance, it was still a speech devoid of substance. Much like the Tea Party itself.

But in keeping with this tradition of finding the most extreme fringe candidate, this year’s Tea Party response will be delivered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Gault Wanna Be). Paul will begin his speech shortly after Sen. Marco Rubio delivers the official GOP response. But why does the Tea Party need a separate response? According to a statement by Amy Kremer, chairman of the Koch funded Tea Party Express, “We are giving a voice to the tea party movement when the mainstream media and the Republican establishment wants to write us off as dead.”

3. "Rand." D'Oh.

I finally figured out why his old man named him that.

I guess it wouldn't do to have named him "Ayn."

11. There will come a time when Colbert is unable to fake it any longer.

As it is, he sometimes laughs at the things he is forced to say in order to appear to be on the Conservative side of the tracks.

6. And who is going to air this response?

If any network or cable news outlet does that will be pathetic.

7. Any KY DU'ers know if this fool is at all popular at home?

I'm curious how his insanity is playing there.

Maybe not...I suspect many,like me,will listen to the State of the Union Address,then skip,what promises to be,the mentally deficient responses..

Flip side,I'd wager that there will be those who skip the State of the Union,yet tune in for the 2 episodes of gibberish it will provoke....

As for myself,I can wait to read about the "rebuttals",in the next days funny papers....

*ETA*

I'm not discounting your point that,there being 2 rebuttals allowed is absolute bullshit....It is bullshit!!

10. Maybe he just memorize Bachmann's speech from a couple of years ago.

Complete with the off-center camera!
