Rand Paul is definitely a Mound – because his head is filled with shredded coconut without the joy of the nut."
Shorty after daddy Paul scolded the media for "gotcha journalism" and "taking things out of context," Randy was back on the Today Show with this:
"What I don't like from the president's administration is this sort of, 'I'll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,'" Paul said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America.""I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business."
Which is just the latest example of Paul's simpleminded approach (and certainly not his last – can you tell I don't like this guy? Well, at least he's no Cavuto).
I'm one who thinks BP can't be criticized enough, but I'd add this distinction: when it comes to BP, I'm all for the "Fairness Doctrine." No criticism of BP should be allowed air time without at least an equal amount of criticism for the Bobo Administration. And that would have the advantage of negating Paul's criticism since no amount of criticism of liberals is un-American.
But of course, this isn't about whether Paul's idiotic observation has merit, it's about his penchant for both the limelight and for disseminating his wacko views. And if he's not muzzled soon, he's going to taint the movement he credits for his success.

Even Joe Scarborough is smarter than Rand Paul:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: I will not mention any names, but I'll just say one of the top conservative leaders in Washington, DC, not elected, but a real opinion-shaper, had two questions. First of all, how could he have been so stupid to have walked into this type of controversy? And secondly, this is part of a news story so I'm going to say it, what the hell was he doing on MSNBC? This isn't an anti-MSNBC situation but you don't find a whole lot of very liberal Democrats going on Fox News election night or the night after to do their victory lap. They're wondering whether he's ready for prime time…
