More Ron Paul Spawn May Be Running For Senate

by Jack Stuef

Now a third Paul — Robert, a doctor who runs a family medical practice in Benbrook and lives in Fort Worth — is mulling a congressional bid of his own.

After campaigning for his father, most notably giving speeches during the elder Paul’s 2008 presidential bid, Robert Paul is considering whether to jump into the race to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison when her term expires in January 2013.

A doctor, huh? What board certified him? The American Medical Board of Robert Paul’s Nieces and Nephews? [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]

Does Ron Paul have a third son, named Curly-Joe?

WriteyWriterton April 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm

How come this mixed-up RonPaulMoran (no government intervention in anything ever, except women's wombs) didn't name all of his kids "Ron Paul," a la George Foreman?

Lascauxcaveman April 15, 2011 at 5:31 pm

Does Ron Paul have a third son, named Curly-Joe?

Or maybe a fat one, named 'Hoss'?

user-of-owls April 15, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Alas, no. But he does have a fifth son named Zeppo.

Shemp Paul

Zvi_Bleindmeis April 15, 2011 at 10:58 pm

I've mentioned this before: did you know that Shemp Howard is a relative by marriage of Barney Frank?

Paul Paul

RedneckMuslin April 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm

They must not have been very good doctors.

nounverb911 April 15, 2011 at 4:16 pm

They want that free senatorial healthcare.

Zvi_Bleindmeis April 15, 2011 at 10:56 pm

And the barney franking privileges.

carlgt1 April 16, 2011 at 2:53 pm

well who the hell would go to an admittedly greedy in-it-for-himself/non-compassionate Randroid Libertarian doctor?

SayItWithWookies April 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Robert? I'm not buying it. His real name is Fountainhead Invisible Hand Paul, right?

Gopherit April 15, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Exactly. What's his middle name…….WAyne?

poncho_pilot April 15, 2011 at 4:14 pm

it would be an appropriate name for a libertarian: want some cheese with your WAyne?

user-of-owls April 15, 2011 at 7:00 pm

That's the virginal daughter, actually. And she recently became engaged to a Virginia blue-blood named Chesterton Up Skirt Finger Bang, which was really rather inevitable when you put a Fountainhead Invisible Hand and Up Skirt Finger Bang together.

SorosBot April 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Ron, Rand and Rob Paul – I'm beginning to notice a naming pattern here, sort of like the male Palins with Tr-.

nounverb911 April 15, 2011 at 4:17 pm

"T"

calibrit April 15, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Or the Duggars.

CalamityJames April 15, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Or like the femalin's with their flappy whore-holes?

Larry, Darryl, and Darryl.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 17, 2011 at 10:50 pm

Then there's Ru, the one they don't talk about.

edgydrifter April 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Please tell me this is another damned "Atlas Shrugged" publicity stunt.

SorosBot April 15, 2011 at 4:15 pm

It'll be fun to laugh at the movie flopping. And it's just part one of a trilogy.

weejee April 15, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Ron Paul is a big fan of Ayn Rand
"Atlas Shrugged…1,000 pages of ideological fabulism” – William F. Buckley
One of the v. few times I'm with Buckley
QED Paul is an ideological fabulist (at best)

Dudleydidwrong April 15, 2011 at 10:45 pm

And also an ideological fapulist (at best, too)

SorosBot April 15, 2011 at 5:29 pm

In fact ha ha:
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/atlas_shrugged_pa

15 out of 16 "rotten" reviews so far; and the one good one? From Murdoch's NY Post. It has a very high user rating though, no doubt from Randroids who haven't seen the thing all giving five starts.

poncho_pilot April 15, 2011 at 6:25 pm

and even if it sucks as a movie like the trailer indicates they'll still like it. then there's this douche: http://www.youtube.com/user/sgapplebee

HistoriCat April 15, 2011 at 9:31 pm

Kind of like Scientologists being bused in to see that Battlefield Earth movie – if you're in the cult, you have to like it.

BaldarTFlagass April 18, 2011 at 8:48 am

I guess the producers and financiers of this movie will be getting the finger from the Invisible Hand of the Market.

poncho_pilot April 15, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Atlas actually held up the sky if i remember correctly. Atlas had Uranus on his shoulders. not the Earth.

CliveWarren April 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm

"Fort Worth"

Is it like Fort Knox, but instead of gold bars it's filled with self-importance bricks and handwritten "I really am a real medicine doctor-certificates?"

zhubajie April 16, 2011 at 2:52 am

Is Ft Worthless somewhere nearby?

Biel_ze_Bubba April 17, 2011 at 10:51 pm

Short for "For What it's Worth"

DownFist Troll April 15, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Serious snark for a minute. How can you be a doctor and be opposed to medicare/medicaid? And how can you be a libertarian and opposed to abortion?

Bonzos_Bed_Time April 15, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Rich Jesus-libertarians get to make their own rules.

DownFist Troll April 15, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Ah yes of course. I forgot about the "Hypocritical Asshole" factor.

Bonzos_Bed_Time April 15, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Many of them even have M.D. after their name…

bflrtsplk April 17, 2011 at 10:15 am

In their case, it stands for Mindless Douchebag.

Hatrabbit April 15, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Also, how can you be a Paul and be taken seriously.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 17, 2011 at 10:53 pm

These are Libertardians. Different thing entirely.

OkieDokieDog April 15, 2011 at 4:09 pm

I vote NO.

natoslug April 15, 2011 at 5:39 pm

Thank you. (sorry, you'd get it if you knew my real name. As it is, this falls flat, and would probably be deleted if this were a sober moment)

OkieDokieDog April 15, 2011 at 10:15 pm

I don't get it, but I'm intrigued.

natoslug April 16, 2011 at 12:24 am

Eh — it's just my initials. Which upsets some people, when I put NO on legal docs. they think I'm refusing to sign.

OkieDokieDog April 16, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Now I get it , and I'm amused.

Next time sign it NO NO – and see what happens. ha!

Barbara_i April 15, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Damn you, downfisting troll! Do you know how hard it was to come up with snark for this story? Dumb fat fuck!

poncho_pilot April 15, 2011 at 4:19 pm

i think the troll is a total teabagger nouveau-Randroid. he goes nuts on any post involving the Pauls or comments about Rand.

and probably like yesterday's troll who actually commented, he's a "libertarian" and thinks he's not a right winger. libertarians are soooo not right wing fascists. nope. no way, man.

WhatTheHolyHeck April 15, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Ooh, we have more than one. I've done my part.

zhubajie April 16, 2011 at 2:53 am

Probably just some kind of computer program.

poncho_pilot April 15, 2011 at 4:11 pm

"A doctor, huh? What board certified him?"

he was certified in the Game of LIFE.

Bedtime in the Paul household, circa 1975:

Ron: "Rand! Hank! Francisco! John Galt Paul! Y'all get to bed now, d'ye hear?"
Unison: "Don't you oppress me!"

Rarian Rakista April 15, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Do you know what the group of people including a young Greenspan who surrounded Rand were called?

Eugenics is such a double-edged sword. Sometimes it produces a bare-chested Ricardo Montalban, and sometimes it produces a clan of Pauls .

He can join his brother and the Quayle boy at the Senate's Kiddie Table for lunch. Helmets, plastic utensils and goggles all around.

natoslug April 16, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I haven't used "NO NO", but I do occasionally get all exclamatory and use "NO!". Had I thought about it, I would have married a woman with the initials YES. Unfortunately, Yasmine Bleeth is the only Y woman I know (if drooling over her on Nash Bridges counts as knowing someone), and I don't think I could convince her to 1) change her name to Yasmine Erlina Sexypants and 2) marry me.

OkieDokieDog April 16, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Yasmine Erlina Sexypants sounds like a name Britney Spears would pick for a daughter. lol

Alas my sexual fantasy man has knocked up a bimbo named Kimbo, who is the daughter of Rod Stewart. She could possibly name her child something from a Mod Rod song.
