Full cartoon, here.
Liberty Garbo came out of hiding the last 2 days to do some softball damage control on Rush and Hannity. And what did he have to say? Well, besides saying that he was going to write his own secret balanced budget for Congress to adopt (snort!), he says that “OMG we’re turning into Greece! Fear!”:
“If filibuster be necessary to make them pay attention to the debate over a balanced budget, I think a good week’s time would be well spent to have the whole country talk about what’s going to happen to us if we become Greece”
It’s a nice fun talking point, but it has absolutely no basis in reality. Still, much like the NAFTA Superhighway, Golden Ameros, Obama takin’ yur guns, armed door-to-door tax collectors, and the ADA forcing 2-story elevators, reality has never gotten in the way of Rand Paul latching on to a conspiracy theory in order to scare the hell out of people.
Oh, here’s another one from Rush’s show:
“I think basically the Democrat National Committee decided, ‘here’s this guy who’s doing great, look at the tea party, look at what the tea party’s doing. We have to damage the Tea Party. We’ve always wanted to call them racists. So here’s our chance let’s make up this and direct the whole debate that way.’”
See, you may have thought that Rand Paul babbled on and on for 20 minutes about why he disagreed with Title II of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and felt that private business owners should be able to discriminate based on skin color, but Rand’s here to tell you that you are wrong. In actuality, the DNC either hypnotized Rand prior to his CJ Board, NPR and Maddow interviews and instructed him to say this, or coordinated with those 3 interviewers to manipulate to video/audiotape. Or, Rand Paul just thinks you’re really stupid.
I know what I’m voting on.
Maybe he can expand on these ideas further the next time he’s on Alex Jones‘s show.
Sure, it’s not as fast as we’d like (thanks to Obama and the Democrats watering down the stimulus bill for TWO Republican votes), but the numbers don’t lie.

Almost as cool as this:
