Doctor My Eyes

A brief anecdote on why the contempt politicians nurture for constituents is so lavishly reciprocated.

As I’m sure most of you remain unconsoled, Detroit Republican and African-American engagement center proprietor Rand Paul, cracked the axle following his sprint through Iowa. He joined Huckabee, Santorum, and any vestigial pride of the Bush family in leaving the race. On the Democrat side, undocumented candidate Martin O’ Malley also reentered the shadows, even after coming in the top three. This while second-to-last finisher Bernard Sanders grimly trudges onward. There’s no expectation of class in politics, alas.

That especially being the case with Dr. Paul, who will now presumably return to his occupation of conspicuously carving cataracted Haitians. This under the protective jurisdiction of an armed security detail, naturally. Shit, you don’t think he’s just going to advertise his obsequiousness to Africans without some buffer between them, do you? Regardless, the renowned black libertarian demographic remained impassive to his appeals and so it’s back to astigmatism we go.

Which is probably somewhat irritating if you happen to be a Republican voter in Paul’s home commonwealth of Kentucky. Because it was this erstwhile candidate who earlier demanded that Kentucky’s customary republican primary be discarded in favor of a cumbersome Iowa-style caucus. Paul’s advocacy of this change was utterly altruistic, of course. Here’s his own words to prove it:

It has been suggested by others for several cycles that Kentucky has no influence on the presidential process because of our late primary. By May 2016, the GOP will likely have decided its nominee, rendering our votes useless in deciding anything.

So look, Paul just wanted his constituents to have a louder voice in the national din. I’m sure the fine people of Kentucky appreciate their senator’s selfless concern. But why a caucus?

Creating a separate caucus for the presidential nomination would also allow Paul to simultaneously run for president and reelection to his seat – something he would not be able to do under current Kentucky law, which prohibits a name from appearing on a primary ballot for more than one office.

So according to the Rule of Law, Rand had to make a choice: run for senator or run for president. Though the Law of Rule is quite a bit more supple for certain operators. As a farcical result, Kentuckians are now obliged to go huddle in some primitive political rain dance on behalf of a candidate not even on the ballot. And if disdain over this colludes with the general scorn for his open Afro-panderbating, he just may ultimately need a more local wailing wall.

  1. In the first pic, our good doctor, dedicated scientist that he is, was confirming the theory that blind people hate them too.
    Diagnosis: Yup.

  3. Open borders, free trade, regressive taxation, deflationary currency, financial deregulation and union busting might seem like a bad deal for the middle class, but at least we’ll be able to drown our sorrows in legal heroine and crack cocaine, after we sell our kidneys and women to the freshly legalized organ smugglers and pimps.

    Detroit Republicans; turning America into Detroit writ large.

    • Funny how, pre-Trump, Rand seemed palatable simply by virtue of his disdain of foreign adventures and sanity on civil liberties. He also benefits from being sincere in his cuckian views; not a thorough slime ball. That said, no amount of nose holding would avert violent nausea should I have to pull the lever for him in a national race against, say, the Bern, but I’d go through with it anyway. He’s a useful senator, but that’s it. This is another benefit of Trump; even if he doesn’t win this cycle, the template has been laid for success by nationalists local and national. The great number of people so inclined won’t have so few choices to represent us in the future.

      • I held some mild aspirations for Paul at one time. He was once on record actually expressing some tepid skepticism for the “civil rights” act. As presumably any principled libertarian would be induced to blanch at the federal government (10th Amendment?) telling private citizens of the sovereign states whom they must do business with.

        INTERVIEWER: Would you have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964?

        PAUL: I like the Civil Rights Act in the sense that it ended discrimination in all public domains, and I’m all in favor of that.

        INTERVIEWER: But?

        PAUL: You had to ask me the “but.” I don’t like the idea of telling private business owners — I abhor racism. I think it’s a bad business decision to ever exclude anybody from your restaurant — but, at the same time, I do believe in private ownership. But I think there should be absolutely no discrimination in anything that gets any public funding, and that’s most of what the Civil Rights Act was about to my mind.

        Paul (also) said that while he agreed with most parts of the Civil Rights Act, he was opposed to Title II, the section that made it a crime for private businesses to discriminate against customers on the basis of race. Paul said that he would have tried to change the bill if he was in office at the time.

        Sounds completely reasonable. And as he is staunchly opposed to racial discrimination in any venue that receives public funding, you can imagine how much of his legislative career has been spent fighting affirmative action in this sphere. That’s right, none of it.

        Instead, our principled libertarian utterly renounced his easily defensible positions and proceeded to open a specifically black outreach office because he will countenance absolutely no discrimination.

        I could have suffered through his understandable kowtowing on the Sacred Law. But all of his subsequent black boot-licking was simply gratuitous. Cringingly pathetic. And even worse than cynical was the fact it was all pointless in its cynicism. Blacks gave no shit for his Detroit Republicanism or Haitian ministrations. Paul called Trump racist, and the seven blacks who voted republican in Iowa gave Paul the back of their 40oz. All his reversals and cucking purchased sweet fuck all. And that’s the best lesson pols like him could ever absorb.
