Rand Paul’s Romney endorsement


Immediately after the announcement, all my friends found the button to open their picture manipulatin’ app or found a friend who was actually good at photoshop and got jiggy with the Rand Paul outrage. Needless to say this is probably not a meme the Pauls will be sharing at family picnics.

Some of these are incredibly sharp-tongued. Like the first one that popped up in my newsfeed:

And directly on the heels of that, wording the sellout accusation ever so slightly better:

Someone chose to explore what Rand’s thinking:

Someone else used the exact picture with a horrible font to allude to Rand turning to the dark side (a Star Wars reference that has become the recurring theme of this meme):

By this point, the dark side schtick was wearing thin even on me — a self-avowed jedi commander — so we’ll finish with the pièce de résistance:

    Atta boy. I like your style. Put it front and center. Tell it like it is. Don’t be afraid to use those scary evil forbidden ‘curse words’ to drive the point home. Well done. I can’t wait to see the counter arguments from those in the ‘liberty movement’ defaulting to compromise — like golden boy Rand. Too funny. Short of some serious concessions by ‘Team Romney’ someone better start polishing their stethoscope. Too funny. It really is.

    ”Ron Paul supporters believe they rule the internet. Maybe they do, and maybe they don’t.”

    Rand Paul

    (Well, something like that)

      Rand Paul will benefit from the rules of incumbency, I doubt one endorsement would be enough to throw off his chances of getting re-elected. With Ron Paul retiring from Congress he’s got that political machinery all to himself.

      The timing should have been closer to the election (post convention, duh) if he wanted this to go smoother rather than looking like a fleeing rat from his dad’s sinking campaign.

        Yeah, I’d have to side with your assessment. The ‘polished stethoscope’ conjecture was basically tongue in cheek. Rand is known as a ‘Tea Party’ senator. Although Ron sometimes get the credit as father of the movement it appears to have been once again hijacked by the neocon faction of the republican party with a twist. It’s not difficult to sell the idea of middle eastern intervention and perpetual unconstitutional ‘police actions’ to indoctrinated Christians. Nuff said. Shrug…

    Rand Paul decided to sell out early, and avoid the rush.

    Still, Rand is one of the better Senators, but that is a low bar.

    It is clear that Ron Paul will not win the Republican nomination for President, so it is time for Ron Paul activists to start moving to the campaign of Gary Johnson, Libertarian for President.

    I guess we can thank the eye doctor for helping people to see that the Ron Paul campaign is about to end.

    • Low Bar? What have done for the Constitution other than talking nonsense.

    Rand was wrong.  Mitt loves the TSA, bailouts, Obamacare and illegals. Ron Paul is the only candidate with a plan to end the TSA and end the endless wars for Israel, it all started a decade ago after a false flag attack.

    Rand Paul is a sellout. Its a strategic sellout, but its one that wont soon be forgotten.

    In other news, this overshadows Ron Paul officially calling it quits on the campaign trail. 

  • Paul Bonnett

    I will never support Rand. Ron and Gary Johnson own it to the Libertarian Movement to team up and avenge both his son and the GOP Establishment. If we get B.O. in the outcome then so be it ! as history mostly shows, we probably have to suffer much more as a nation to awaken the sheeple !
