It's Official, Rand Paul to Speak at RNC

Here's the announcement I received from Rand Paul's press office:
Good afternoon, The Republican National Convention announced today that Sen. Rand Paul will be one of the headline speakers scheduled to participate in this year’s convention. Here is a quote Sen. Paul provided for the announcement: 

U.S. Senator Rand Paul

“In the past four years, we have seen the national debt soar at the hands of failed Democrat policies. We are nearing a fiscal cliff and are in desperate need of a change of direction.  Whether it is Obamacare, Dodd-Frank or the EPA’s war on coal, American jobs and growth are being stifled by the current policies. I believe Governor Romney would help our country start a new path, where job creators are encouraged not punished, and where the size and scope of government are brought under control. I am honored to speak about our Republican vision for the future at the national convention in Tampa,” said Senator Rand Paul.

Of course, no spot for the true liberty fighter, Ron Paul. The RNC knows Rand will play ball AND they will go over every word he plans to say.


  1. Rand has officially sold out.

  2. I like Rand, but he's the wrong Paul to be speaking at the RNC.

  3. Rand Paul speaking at the RNC ='s Jimmy Carter speaking at the DNC.

    He's a disgrace to Ron's name.

  4. Well, we know who Rand's real daddy is--Irving Kristol.

  5. Well, see! You were all wrong.

    You thought Rand was a libertarian, a maverick, untrainable. But the great GOP machine has gotten him to speak, and is currently working on sit, stay and roll over. Now, if they can just get him paper trained to go on that damn document from 1776...

    You know, shock collars work like gangbusters. You just put those little flags around the area where it is OK for him to play, and he stays right where you want him.

    Wait! What is it Lassie? What's wrong girl? Has little Rand fallen into the quicksand?

  6. It doesn't take long for political ambition to overtake personal principles. You think he could have held steady halfway through his first term.
