James Comer does something really funny

Oh my.

FRANKFORT — Lexington Tea Party movement organizer Mica Sims has joined Republican James Comer’s campaign for state agriculture commissioner as state field director, the Comer campaign said Friday.

“Rep. Comer is the not only the best choice for this office because he is a life-long farmer but he’s the voter’s only choice as a valid candidate for this office,” Sims said in a release.

She is to coordinate the campaign’s statewide grassroots and volunteer efforts.

*****

“I am very excited to announce my team who will coordinate with my local organizations to ensure victory in November. These individuals have lots of energy, they are very well respected, and are all experienced in organizing successful campaigns,” Comer said.

So that really happened. Mica Sims is directing a statewide field campaign. Because of her experience running campaigns and how respected she is. Wow.

I’ve heard lots of rumblings about bad blood between David Williams and James Comer. This certainly makes those rumblings a little more interesting (Sims is encouraging teabaggers not to vote for Williams). And I’m not sure whether this hire means that Comer already knows he has won, or he’s completely insane. I’m better the former, but who knows?

Cenk on Rand Paul’s slavery fever dream

How dare this collectivist threaten the intelligence of Rand Paul! Everyone who isn’t a slave to the Nanny State knows that Rand Paul is the the smartest man in America, perhaps only 2nd place to Ron Paul or Lew Rockwell.

He’s so full of it. Rich white doctors in America suffer just as much oppression as the folks who came over in the Middle Passage, no matter what the PC revisionist history crowd tells you.

More on Paul being passed over by McConnell, "slavery" fallout

As we mentioned Friday, Mitch McConnell passed over Rand Paul for the open seat on the Senate Budget Committee. The Hill follows up:

A Senate GOP aide familiar with Paul’s ambitions said Paul asked for the Budget seat that was to become vacant after Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) announced his resignation last month.

Paul’s spokeswoman Moira Bagley said her boss asked for a seat on the Budget Committee at the beginning of the year. She declined, however, to comment about whether he reiterated his interest after Ensign revealed his plans to step down.

The Senate aide familiar with the behind the scenes jockeying said Paul did indeed make that request.

A second Senate aide questioned the decision: “I don’t know why he’d skip Rand Paul, I don’t know anyone better to have on the Budget Committee than Rand Paul.”

I can probably tell you why. It might be because Rand Paul has used his place on committees to fill hearings with paranoid rants about his plugged toilet, Ayn Rand characters, slavery, and police breaking into his house to abduct him and force him treat a poor person. Perhaps Mitch McConnell wanted to choose someone who is in touch with reality.

But speaking of Rand’s rantings, here’s how his “I am a slave” idiocy played in Kentucky:

Raoul Cunningham, president of the Louisville chapter of the NAACP, called the Kentucky Republican’s remarks “ludicrous.”

“If the statement were not made by a United States senator from the state of Kentucky, before a subcommittee of the United States Senate, I would dismiss it as ridiculous,” Cunningham (Lville NAACP) said in an interview.

*****

State Sen. Gerald Neal, D-Louisville, said Paul was “making a good argument for himself, to qualify himself as a racist,” though he added, “I’m not quite there yet. I just say he’s an irresponsible, ignorant individual.

*****

“As an anti-federalist, pro-states’ rights proponent, Senator Rand Paul’s statements linking slavery to the Affordable Care Act demonstrate a dangerous, ignorant, and unsupportable revisionist view of American history that should not be allowed to stand unchallenged under the guise of his concern about the role of the federal government,” Jackson (Jesse Jr.) said in a statement.

Oh yeah?

In response, Paul’s office issued a statement Friday saying Jackson’s “accusations are insulting and his arguments invalid.”

Dementia in defense of Liberty is no vice!

Fortunately, while none of his Republican colleagues have his back on this slavery-police-raid stuff, Rush Limbaugh has Rand’s back. And you KNOW Rush Limbaugh has no race problems, so let’s consider this issue settled.

Larry O on "our most profoundly ignorant Senator" Rand Paul

As we mentioned on Thursday before Blogger decided to explode and erase all of my posts, Rand Paul sounded like a mental patient this week, explaining that universal health care means slavery for doctors, and nighttime police squad abductions of them.

Lawrence O’Donnell addressed Rand Paul’s remarks last night, and he was slightly rougher on him:

Mitch McConnell slights Rand Paul on committee assignment?

Erick Erickson over at Red State thinks that Mitch McConnell intentionally passed over People of Tea Rand Paul and Jim DeMint in assigning John Ensign’s old Senate committee seats.

It never ceases to amaze me that so many self-described conservatives will defend Mitch McConnell and the GOP Senate Leaders to the hilt when it comes to their treatment of Senate conservatives.

Last night, I noted that Mitch McConnell had snubbed Jim DeMint by putting Richard Burr in the Finance Committee.

*****

Well, for those who use the seniority argument as a blanket #WINNING argument, please explain why Kelly Ayotte is on the Budget Committee and not Rand Paul?

Rand Paul wanted to be on the Budget Committee. And he has seniority over Kelly Ayotte under the Senate’s rules. But McConnell passed him over and gave it to Ayotte instead.

Well, I guess I can’t blame McConnell too much. I mean, putting Rand Paul on a committee means that he’s just going to use that platform to blame people for his plugged toilet, make soliloquies about Ayn Rand, and talk about how public health care is just like slavery. Would you appoint him to the Senate Budget committee?

Let’s see how the Liberty Lovers take this news, though.

Ken Ham might build "Solomon’s Temple" in KY, but it won’t be "weird"

Here’s another golden nugget from Kentucky’s new source of pride, Ark Encounter. Ken Ham’s Deputy Flintstone Truther, Mark Looy, was asked what is next for Answers in Genesis after they build their giant boat with dinosaurs on it.

Well, surprise surprise, its Solomon’s Temple!

But I know what you’re thinking: “Hey Mark, this isn’t going to be some kind secular temple where all sorts of weird religious ceremonies are held, is it?”

Well guess what? Looy literally says that it won’t be:

“We’ve been thinking about that,” Looy said, “but it’s not going to be some kind of secular temple where all sorts of weird religious ceremonies are held.”

Well thank god. Because when you’re building a temple next to a giant boat that depicts a 600-year old man herding T-Rexes onto it a few thousand years ago, the last thing you want is for it to be weird.

A lovely Rolling Stone profile on Sen. Paul’s Truther buddy

A very entertaining read.

For instance, Jared Loughner was only spouting Alex Jones crap because the government wanted him to:

“The whole thing stinks to high heaven,” he says. “This kid Loughner disappeared for days at a time before the shooting? My gut tells me this was a staged mind-control operation. The government employs geometric psychological-warfare experts that know exactly how to indirectly manipulate unstable people through the media. They implanted the idea in his head by repeatedly asking, ‘Is Giffords in danger?’”

Makes sense to me. Maybe Rand Paul can chat with him about that the next time he’s on the show.

Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist coming to Kentucky this weekend

Get your witty counter signs ready, people:

LOUISVILLE (AP) – Members of a Kansas church who won a Supreme Court case that gives them broad rights to continue jeering protests say they plan to picket at Kentucky churches this weekend.

The Westboro Baptist Church announced in faxes that members plan to protest at an Owensboro Catholic church that was the site of a suicide of a man who said in a note he had been sexually abused.

The group says it will also target two more Protestant churches in Owensboro and a Catholic church in Louisville.

Here are some sign suggestions.

Rand Paul’s Truther buddy getting his day in the Sheen spotlight

So apparently some crappy actor from some crappy TV show named Charlie Sheen went crazy and went on crazier person Alex Jones’ radio show recently.

And the geniuses at The View decided that it would therefore be a great idea to have him on the show, not knowing that they were about the get the lowdown on WTC Building 7:

I think it’s pretty clear by now that Alex Jones can pick a winner. Can we start the Spitzer/Jones petition?
