Going Off The Rails On A Crazy Train

Rand Paul is in a tough spot. I’d say he’s probably going to be the second candidate in the near future that drops from the Serious Candidate milieu. I think Bush is the next casualty. Nevertheless, Rand is giving it one last shot, and his new motto is “go crazy and GO BIG”:

“Only certain opinions are acceptable on college campus,” Paul told Fox’s Gretchen Carlson. “It’s almost like they’ll put you in prison for challenging the religious dogma on climate change.”

I hate to have to go over this again, but you can’t have an opinion on a fact. Climate change is what it is and pretty much the entire scientific community knows that there is only one conclusion that has any merit. You either believe the fact, or you are a fucking moron who refuses to learn. It’s a very simple equation. You can yell all day that the grass is purple but it doesn’t establish a fact.

What does “almost like they’ll put you in prison” even mean? Isn’t prison…like prison, and there’s really no comparison here to be made?

The libertarian-leaning Republican argued that college students today have “become intolerant and they really have no sense of humor.”

Even more ponderous. Maybe he misses fag and spade jokes or something? Beats the hell out of me what he’s getting at here. Furthermore, climate change is not funny. Even if it weren’t happening, jokes about the weather will probably not circulate long.

If Rand wasn’t already crazy, he is definitely breathing the air of certain other lunatics that I can’t mention lately because they piss me off so much.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
