Accuser: Rand Paul Did Not Kidnap Me But He Did Make Me Worship Aqua Buddha

Greg Interviews AquaBuddha Worshipper

The woman at the center of Rand Paul's "Aqua Buddha" scandal spoke to Greg Sargent. Here's what she had to say: Paul and his friend didn't force her to do anything, or kidnap her, but they did blindfold her, put her in a creek and make her worship his made-up water god.

From Sargent:
In our conversation, she elaborated that she doesn't want her name in print because she's a clinical psychologist who works with former members of the military, some of whom are Tea Partyers, and fears that complicating Paul's Senate run could put her in danger.

7. This was my first thought,
Sounds a lot like the same kinda shit myself and a bunch of my friends would do back in the 70's

We used to call it "Shits and Giggles" The same kinda stoned thinking that would lead us to break into a dorm room,close the door,then build a brick wall on the other side so when the occupant came back from their weekend outing and opened the door...

3. There are far better reasons to go after Rand Paul than
foggy (and now retracted) accusation of college drug use and pranking.

4. For the record, Aqua Buddha is what we called hydro pot in the 80s.
It was a pretty well known label, in Cali at least.

5. Christ (or Aqua Buddha) on a crutch...

There's no story here whatsoever. TPM and Salon were guilty of sensationalizing it in the first place, but Josh Marshall is following up responsibly. Salon, meanwhile, is turning into a cacophonous unedited sewer a la HuffPost -- and in the HuffPost mode is more and more dependent on free content, basically just blog entries.

Horseshit like this ends up just helping Rand Paul.

6. Ok that is slightly more believable
I'm not willing to convict the guy based on an anonymous source.
