proof that scum rises to the top of the bog



Republicans Peter King (Rep, NY) and Chris Christie (Gov, NJ) have been tearing into Republican Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and his “anti-war” NSA foot pounding, saying he is weakening the Republican Party’s bona fides on national security. So Paul took it to the next level, slamming both King and Christie for being takers who are bankrupting the government. At a Republican fundraiser in Tennessee on Sunday, Senator Paul accused Christie and King of being all “gimme, gimme, gimme”, according to CNN affiliate WKRN-TV. Speaking as the headliner at a Boots and Jeans, BBQ and Beans fundraising event in Franklin Tennessee, the Senator said,
“The people who want to criticize me and call me names, they are precisely the same people who are unwilling to cut the spending. They are ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme all my Sandy money now.’ Those are the people who are bankrupting the government and not allowing enough money be left over for national defense.”
Bizarrely, the Senator also explained that the GOP needs to be more inclusive, and suggested that they need to get those New England votes. Senator Paul expounded on ways to grow the Republican Party, “New England, the West Coast, Illinois, we need to figure out how to win in those states. And until we get more inclusive, until we get more African American votes, more Latino votes, more women’s votes, more youth’s votes, we have to do all of that.”
The Senator’s plans for expanding the party all seem to follow the same blueprint. Want more African American voters? Hire a racist secessionist who champions the assassination of President Lincoln as your close aide, defend said racist until the pressure gets too high and then say you hope hiring said secessionist won’t damage the GOP brand. Want more women votes? Get out your transvaginal freedom probes on your way to an anti-choice rally for personal liberty (Bob Cesca nicely points out the hypocrisy here). from democratic underground
