  •  Aqua Buddha's legislative pipe-dreaming (8+ / 0-)
    Arguably the lamest thing about Rand Paul's threat is that it's empty. There aren't 40 Republican Senators willing to filibuster raising the debt limit—even they know it must be raised. But that isn't stopping Rand Paul from waxing poetic about filibusters. To paraphrase Barney Frank, Rand Paul is having too much fun bathing in the purity of his irrelevance to think about actually getting anything done.
    after one bong-full, you don't need to think about doing anything....

      Rand Paul's vote is through his stomach.

      Just wait until he's been toking the good Aqua Buddha and he'll do anything to assuage the munchies.

      A veritable modern-day Esau is our Sen. Paul....

      Lovely poetry, that.

      •  The Republic Party has become the Silly Party (0+ / 0-)

        This is playing out as a real life version of Python's Silly Party sketch. And Rand Paul is the real live leader of the VERY SILLY PARTY.

          What's with everyone suddenly using the term, "Republic Party"? We scoff when they refer to the "Democrat Party". I get that this is supposed to be responding in kind, but then that just lowers us to their level. So, I really don't get it. (MoT's Rec List diary today does this, too...)
