Rand Paul’s Dumbass Tea Party Rebuttal to #SOTU
If you want to read the whole thing, you can click here. I stopped after the first two paragraphs because I was laughing too hard:
I speak to you tonight from Washington, D.C. The state of our economy is tenuous but our people remain the greatest example of freedom and prosperity the world has ever known.
People say America is exceptional. I agree, but it’s not the complexion of our skin or the twists in our DNA that make us unique. America is exceptional because we were founded upon the notion that everyone should be free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.
Do tell, Rand. Do tell.
Look, if you want to watch it, who am I to stop you — but I wouldn’t advise it:
That Rand went out of his way to mention race but then carried on about how everyone was born free or some shit is just the height of idiocracy.
I mean, really.
***Perhaps it’s unfair for me to categorize his entire speech as “dumb as shit” considering I only read the first two paragraphs, but I’m not reading the whole thing; you can’t make me; and I stand by my assessment.
