We’ve always shared with you the musical odes to Ron and Rand Paul from their followers here at B&P. We think it’s only fitting that we share with you the first song (that we know of) devoted to Rand Paul and Rep. Stan Lee from someone who doesn’t consider them Liberty Christ or Liberty Stache.
Get your scatological groove on, via Lexington’s Jerry Moody:
Andy Barr is devoting his entire campaign to explaining that Ben Chandler is taking away jobs from miners in his district by supporting the evil EPA and Nobama — even though, you know, there are ZERO miners employed in the 6th District, including the western KY coal CEO that plays dress up as a miner in all of his ads. And, of course, Chandler votes against the EPA every opportunity he gets.
Matt Wasson of Appalachian Voices sent out an email today with actual truth in it:
SUBJECT: Ben Chandler let us down
Last Friday, the House of Representatives passed a package of bills designed to give the coal industry free reign over our streams and mountains. The bill attacks both the EPA and the Office of Surface Mining, preventing them from fulfilling their duties to limit the dumping of mountaintop removal waste.
While we were unable to defeat this package of bills in the House, there was enough bipartisan opposition to ensure that a Presidential veto can be sustained. With your ongoing support, we will continue to demonstrate America’s commitment to ending mountaintop removal.
But it’s important to take time to tell Rep. Ben Chandler that we need him to show the courage to stand up against the financial and political power of the coal industry.
Thanks for standing up for Appalachia,
Asking Ben Chandler to “show the courage to stand up against the financial and political power of the coal industry”? That’s like asking Garland Barr III to tell the truth.
I too am upset with the manner of officiating in last night’s sport game on the playing field. I do not consider them the right height. Varmints, if you will. Who let the dogs out, woof woof. Ha ha ha.
Pretend journalist Wolf Blitzer asked Rand Paul tonight if he agrees with Mitt Romney’s comments on how 47 percent of the population are lazy parasites. After completely avoiding the question by rambling off talking points about government workers (something he’s completely ignorant about), Wolf asked him if that means he agreed with Mitt. Rand Paul said that it showed the difference between the two candidates (True! We agree!), then repeated another unrelated government worker talking point.
Rand’s becoming an even better surrogate for Mitt than Liz Cheney and Dan Senor. Quick learner.
You know, I really should feel bad about sitting at home all day eating my food stamp food and using your tax dollars to buy drugs and mooch off of the 53%… but Barack Obama just makes it soooo easy! It’s hard not to.
Mitt Romney simultaneously said he misspoke and doubled down on his comments tonight in a hastily called press conference, which was as much of a trainwreck as every single moment from his campaign over the last three months.
It’s a whole lotta fail, and it could have been so easily avoided.
Just ask Lt. Dan. It’s called “the tape was heavily edited.”
Then again, fuck the 47%. Mitt Romney doesn’t need this job.
