18. But enough people voted for him!! Something is SERIOUSLY WRONG with this country!!!
I mean seriously. No kidding. Incredibly fubar idiotic STUPID out-to-lunch unthinking -- I'm speechless.

The rest of the world has got to be thinking, "Well we thought they were getting sane, but...."

Dumbfuckistan remains alive and well.

31. It's Kentucky, Sparkly
I'm really not surprised this happened.

The way he's acting now is his victory lap. In January, he'll get his time like any other Senator. And he won't be popular with his toothless followers if and when he starts talking about getting rid of things like Social Security.

Mark my words - one termer.

33. If they can connect the dots that "Big Government" = Social Security, Medicare, and Defense
and the rest is peanuts.

Clearly, they're far, far from comprehending some really basic ideas. :crazy:

38. The current discussion of Rand Paul and the debt ceiling is the key to Paul's future
It's going to be Paul's "sat down hard" moment. Mitch McConnell isn't going to put up with Rand Paul and his libertarian philosophy for too long. When the rubber meets the road, Rand Paul's head is going to be squeezed between - so to speak - if he doesn't say, "Yessir!".

6. He just mangled that famous Senate quote
It's "world's greatest deliberative body" not "world's most deliberative body".

Idiot.

19. I give it 6 months
before he is run out of the country on a rail. This might be the one time in the past 15 years the Republicans and democrats are on the same page, this guy is a joke and a borderline anarchist.

40. They are to stupid to realize what this guy stands for.
Just wait until they start to see his voting record. KY. is one of the states that relies the most on Federal dollars.

Stupid knuckle draggers.

21. If you think this is a win for the republicans, you'll be surprised.
If he votes with the Republicans, he'll be voted out of office by the teabaggers on his next term.

If he votes against the republicans, he is a net 1 vote loss.

Rand PAUL (REP) 54.60%
Jack CONWAY (DEM) 45.40%

You've got your Birchers, Paulians, Palinites, Gellerites and what have you. We'll welcome you with open arms with our EDL, BNP, Front Nationale, Vlaams Belang, Sweden Democrats etc...

They still make up the fringes over here, though...
