BRIEF INTERLUDES FROM RAND PAUL  5:20 pm June 29, 2012

A Brief Interlude From Rand Paul

by Jim Newell

Unfortunately that's how our precious founding fathers decided to make it“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional.” Have a good weekend, Rand Paul! [Politico]

Trust me, I'm an eye doctor.

Come here a minute June 29, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Board certified, by my own board!

Butch_Wagstaff June 29, 2012 at 5:51 pm

His patients and supporters must all be blind.

TribecaMike June 29, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I'm a self-certified masturbator, but that doesn't mean my dick trusts me.

starfanglednut June 29, 2012 at 9:56 pm

Well, you're so clingy.

nounverb911 June 29, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Just because you were born doesn't make you human.

Callyson June 29, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Well, of course not: you people want to be human, get off your lazy asses and incorporate already…

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Or be a fetus.

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Tricky to do after one is born. Although, if you can have a wine-cooler baby and still be a virgin afterwards, I guess it can't be ruled out.

bflrtsplk July 1, 2012 at 2:28 am

Otherwise, you won`t be eligible to vote.

Hera Sent Me June 29, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Just because you have a nickname that pays homage to the worst woman who ever lived doesn't mean you should be clueless about how the government works.

mrpuma2u June 29, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Just because the highest court full of strict constitutionalists who forgot more about the constitution than I'll ever know said it was constitutional, uh freedumz and shrunken head gubmints. I look like Harpo, also.

Hammiepants June 29, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Or Marjoe Gortner.

Jus_Wonderin June 29, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I bet I am the only one that will get that.

finallyhappy June 29, 2012 at 5:56 pm

I remember MarJoe and i get it

DerrickWildcat June 29, 2012 at 6:00 pm

That the guy on Bob Newhart no?

Hammiepants June 29, 2012 at 6:04 pm

You must haz an old, like me :)

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:33 pm

No you're not, unfortunately.

bflrtsplk July 1, 2012 at 2:29 am

There was a movie about that guy

viennawoods13 June 29, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Yeah, but he was a dentist.

OkieDokieDog June 29, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Little Rand Paul, "Wah! I'm gonna tell my daddy and he'll beat you up!"

nounverb911 June 29, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Someone please remind Randy that all of the politicians die at the end of “Atlas Shrugged”.

comptoneffect June 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

So what you're saying is that it has a happy ending.

mrpuma2u June 29, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Someone also remind him that Ayn was a rabid atheist, and thought all devout people were dupes and dullards. In his case she was spot on.

MosesInvests June 30, 2012 at 11:38 pm

Aqua Buddha libel!

mayor_quimby June 29, 2012 at 10:56 pm

I never got that far, I cheated the fuck outta that segment of my freshman curriculum. I blacked that shit out of my memory, still have that piece of shit on my bookshelf.

Blueb4sunrise June 29, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Ah. I see.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Does this fucking idiot understand what "Rule of Law" means? Does he understand the United States' tripartite form of government, and what "lawful" or "law of the land," or, hey, fuck, even LAW or JUDGE or CONSTITUTION fucking MEANS?

I give up. It is NOT too early to start drinking. I'm'a commence on my inebriation right fucking now.

comptoneffect June 29, 2012 at 5:31 pm

I'm way ahead of you. I just got my second Sam Adams in a bar with wi-fi. A few more and even Randian idiocy won't brother me.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 5:41 pm

I bleev I have at least six bottles of good white wine in this house. Two should render me unconscious to further assaults upon my intelligence, and by the time I down the third, assuming my various appendages are still working, I bleev I won't give a handpainted fuck what the Republicans are saying.

Jus_Wonderin June 29, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Funny annecdote. In a team meeting yesterday one of my team said "JW, you are an alcoholic" because they all know of my fondness for the Vodka. I shot back, "No, you are wrong. I am a functioning alcoholic". We laughed and laughed and laughed.

What was I talking about??????????

Goonemeritus June 29, 2012 at 5:34 pm

No he doesn’t, he only understands that sharing is for pussies greed is good and thanks to the convention of wearing clothes no one can tell he is hung like a hamster.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I'm gobsmacked that people are capable of saying things this stupid. This guy attended Duke, which has a reputation as a *good* school, not the usual Confederacy of Dunces that passes for an institution of higher learning here.

Goonemeritus June 29, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Duke provides a better than average opportunity to get an excellent education. Not all the privileged and entitled youth that attend take full advantage. You can lead a Libertarian to logic but you can’t get him to put down the bong.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Sigh. I've had my lips pressed to a bong for a good part of today and lemme tellya even I recognize the flaws in this guy's "thinking." He's gonna have to find something else to blame other than marijuana or Aquabuddha. He's a putz, that's all there is to it. A hopeless schmendrick, a schlemiel, a schmuck.

finallyhappy June 29, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Stupid people go to every school including every Ivy. Just depends on how you got in and what you did while you were there.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I gotta tell ya, I worked so hard to educate myself. So fucking hard.

Don't mind me, I don't often wallow in resentment, but just once I'd like to sneak up behind this guy with a brown paper bag, pop it in his ear, scream "Hyaaah!!" at the top of my lungs, pants him, and then slap him twice on each cheek. It would make me feel SO much better.

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:54 pm

See, this is why Romney's even more wrong than most people are pointing out.

Not only should smart kids who can't afford it be denied education on that basis, for the good of society, but stupid rich kids shouldn't go to college either, because they crowd out more deserving students.

It'd be vaguely interesting to do some analysis on what effect these entitled pricks have on tuition rates. On one hand they're not draining financial aid resources, but on the other hand their parents will pay whatever it takes to make sure Johnny isn't a total fucking embarrassment to them the rest of their lives, which surely drives up the price colleges can command?

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:39 pm

He went to Duke? So, he's from New Jersey?*

*When I worked at UNC, the stereotype of Duke was that everyone there was from New Jersey and majored in Business. On April Fool's Day, UNC's school paper came out with a parody version of Duke's school paper in which they interviewed, "Shelly, a Business major from New Jersey", "Ronnie, a Business Chemistry major from New Jersey", "Michael, a Business History major from New Jersey", "Glenda, a Business Poetry major from New Jersey", etc., in various articles.

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Two of my high school classmates — from East Tennessee — went to Duke. That was 2.3 % of my graduating class.

Callyson June 29, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Shit, I still have to drive somewhere first. But yeah, after that I am cracking into the supply I bought when I thought HCR would be overturned…

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Yay! Drink a glass for all of us!

Hell, drink one for *each* of us.

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Somebody clearly never took a civics class, right? Should we email bomb him with links to the wiki page for Marbury vs. Madison and/or the text of Federalist no. 78?

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:55 pm

You don't really think he's heard of the Federalist Papers, do you?

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Well, that's why he'd need to be sent the text ;)But, Daddy's fanboys are fond of discussing them, although rarely realize that they're almost invariably just proving how little they understand them in the process, so I imagine he's heard of them, even if that's the full extent of his awareness of them.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 7:26 pm

True. That distinction *needs* to be drawn, too. They've *heard of* the law, the Constitution, the tripartite system of power, Dred Scott, Roe v. Wade, and so forth. And that is the entire extent of their knowledge of these issues, nor have they any interest whatsoever in expanding their knowledge.

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Law is hard.

ChapterUndVerse July 1, 2012 at 11:13 pm

Well, crap, if the Supremes can't judge law, can we get a do-over on Citizens United? ANd the election in 2000, also. Too.

edgydrifter June 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

So now the Constitution is just like the Bible? Who the fuck cares what the words say, I'll decide what they mean.

Come here a minute June 29, 2012 at 9:07 pm

As long as your heart is pure, it means whatever you want!

Goonemeritus June 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Just because a plurality of Kentuckians calls you Senator doesn’t make you Senatorial.

Maman June 29, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Or a statesman

GeorgiaBurning June 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Has this guy passed the Turing test?

emmelemm June 29, 2012 at 5:47 pm

What about the Voight-Kampff test?

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:57 pm

I'd like to know if he ever passed an IQ test. The staggering stupidity of that statement puts the lie to any claim of intelligence on the part of the issuer.

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:44 pm

I doubt he could pass a Rorschach test.

starfanglednut June 29, 2012 at 10:01 pm

I see boobs!

doloras June 30, 2012 at 1:03 am

Funnily enough, his politics are quite similar to those of Walter "Rorschach" Kovacs.

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:45 pm

The only hyphenated test this asscarrot could pass would contain the words "Dunning" and "Kruger".

Limeylizzie June 29, 2012 at 6:04 pm

He's gay , British and a genius?

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:44 pm

*raises hand*
Ooh! I know this one!
Stephen Fry.
*pleased*

scvirginia June 29, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Thumbs up!

PubOption June 29, 2012 at 7:34 pm

He shows no sign of stopping.

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

I think I can prove he eventually will, though.

GemlikeFlame June 29, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Wait… You're going to have to solve the halting problem first, which at a minimum needs the equivalent of another Rand Paul to second guess the first one, and then another one to second guess the second Rand Paul. This leads to an infinite regress in which the universe fills up with Rand Pauls and you'll always need at least one more.

Bad idea.

(This is a parody of the partial halting solution. Had this been real computer science you would have known that the halting problem is undecidable. Go on on about your business, citizen.)

sullivanst July 1, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Well, yes, if Rand Paul was immortal. But he isn't. The end.

(I'm quite familiar with the halting problem – for instance, while it means you can't in general prove that an arbitrary program will stop, it doesn't mean there aren't specific programs for which it can be proven)

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:43 pm

"Has this guy passed the Turing test?"

Don't be silly; he's obviously not intelligent enough to play chess against a computer.

Nostrildamus June 30, 2012 at 12:54 am

Let's get him into a cricket test. It takes years to get out of those.

sullivanst July 1, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Too bad Michael Holding is retired.

FlownOver June 30, 2012 at 8:16 pm

He couldn't pass a urine test wit a crib sheet.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Department of Total Denial. Take a number turtle.

Anyone in this much denial doesn't deal in "facts," like, you know, numbers.

CivicHoliday June 29, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I seem to recall learning something different. In elementary school. Rand, you were either on bath salts through your entire childhood, or you are one of the most willfully ignorant people on the planet.

comptoneffect June 29, 2012 at 5:34 pm

One possibility does not exclude the other.

emmelemm June 29, 2012 at 5:47 pm

One (compound) word:

Homeschooled.

UW8316154 June 30, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Homescholed.

/fixed that for ya ;)

Joshua Norton June 29, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so.

It's not like that's their entire job description or anything…..

I'm telling you, the republican party pretty much peaked with Lincoln.

DahBoner June 30, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Best damn vampire hunter the Republican party ever seen…

PuglyDoRight July 1, 2012 at 7:22 am

Except for that Teddy Roosevelt blip, but then he wised up and formed his own party.

Dr. Nick Riviera June 29, 2012 at 5:31 pm

Just because you say you are a board certified opthamologist, doesn't make it so.

Chichikovovich June 29, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Shut up and eat your broccoli, Rand.

Chill_Bill June 29, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Just because a bunch of ignorant toothless fucks made you a Senator, it doesn't make so.

iburl June 29, 2012 at 6:25 pm

don't forget drunk and inbred.

Gleem McShineys June 29, 2012 at 5:34 pm

I've heard this same argument made by just about every single convicted criminal, about the judge that ruled them guilty.

I am saying put Rand Paul in jail, I guess?

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Sounds like they all should've asked for a jury trial…

Hammiepants June 29, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Also, does being a Libertarian dickbag make you unable to count heads or figure out what "majority" means?

sullivanst June 29, 2012 at 7:32 pm

That sounds like a chicken-or-egg problem to me.

OldWhiteLies June 29, 2012 at 5:35 pm

NOT BLOODY EFFING BRIEF ENOUGH!

Needz moar lesser. As in lesser than zero. As in any moar exposure to mr. SmugMug (does this guy do smug well, or what?) is detrimental to my health.

This fucker is just such a puerile little silver spoon bastard. He is really the perfect running mate to Rmoney. The Insular Duo.

Not_So_Much June 29, 2012 at 5:35 pm

He gets more smarter all the time.

ManchuCandidate June 29, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I miss crazy old fucker Jim Bunning.

iburl June 29, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I read on Wonket yesterday that Holder and Obama were led away in handcuffs, does anybody know, has Biden been sworn in yet?

TribecaMike June 29, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Biden is seeking sanctuary at his local IHop.

SayItWithWookies June 29, 2012 at 5:42 pm

I can sympathize — there are certainly some dumbass Supreme Court decisions, like Dredd Scott and Citizens United, that I've thought were wrongly determined. And just because the justices find something Constitutional doesn't make it right. For instance, the ACA is Constitutional, and Rand Paul just ain't right.

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Plessy v. Ferguson.

Monsieur_Grumpe June 29, 2012 at 5:58 pm

It doesn't? We'll I'll be a crossed eyed optometrist with a toilet paper diploma.

SorosBot June 29, 2012 at 6:03 pm

Yes, what one random idiot thinks about a law's constitutionality is so much more important that what the Supreme Court decides.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Of course, because, why do we have a Supreme Court anyway? I mean, it's not, like, in the Con-stuh-TOO-shun or anything, is it?

LetUsBray June 29, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Yeah, that's where the idiots whose opinions we're stuck with are.

Arken June 29, 2012 at 6:05 pm

What was that, Rand? Sorry, I was distracted by that dead squirrel you keep on top of your head.

PuglyDoRight July 1, 2012 at 7:23 am

Reminds me of the SNL fake commercial about the pube hair transplants.

TribecaMike June 29, 2012 at 6:07 pm

I cede. This guy is a genius!

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:31 pm

I'll cede if Kentucky will secede.

orygoon June 29, 2012 at 6:08 pm

DustBowlBlues June 29, 2012 at 8:06 pm

"50 comment thread collapse threshold"

Is that a new rule on the wonket? It sucks to be too busy to hangout with the friends I actually like.

BoatOfVelociraptors June 29, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Ronaldo de Fuchs Cantinelli! Note to self, avoid references to nicaraguan lakes.

glamourdammerung June 29, 2012 at 6:22 pm

The Supreme Court, much like the Constitution and the Holocaust, are things that Rand and Ron just do not understand.

owhatever June 29, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Yeh, Ron's little nipper. It really means that it is the law of the land.

stroge June 29, 2012 at 6:44 pm

that's mighty 'White' of Rand to say that. I sometimes wish I could be bat-shit crazy like the Paul family.

outragedcitizen June 29, 2012 at 6:57 pm

I have this mental image of Dr. Paul standing in a corner with his fingers in his ears going, "Nahnahnahnahnahnahnahnahnah!

C_R_Eature June 29, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Shut up. Because,This.

For I am Costanza Rand Paul, Lord of the Idiots.

rocktonsam June 29, 2012 at 6:59 pm

is Rand Paul high or something?

Negropolis June 29, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Yeah, who the hell does the Supreme Court think it is interpreting law and such?

Negropolis June 29, 2012 at 7:03 pm

I love how Bobby Jindal is on television today essentially saying he wont comply with the law. A Southern governor not implementing federal law? Now, where have I seen that before…the dude's a brown, which makes this particularly down-the-rabbit-hole jarring seeing on television.

finallyhappy June 29, 2012 at 8:17 pm

No, he is Indian – he thinks he is being Ghandi

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:37 pm

In Georgia, we pronounce that "goin' die" and usually add "boy" to the end.

Because we love Jeebus, y'all.

not that Radio June 30, 2012 at 10:41 am

In the Bobby Jindal World of Logic, requiring people to have health insurance is exactly like requiring people to eat tofu, or drive hybrid cars.

pdiddycornchips June 29, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Imagine If the SCOTUS had gone the other way and Barry said that?

LetUsBray June 29, 2012 at 8:48 pm

And then sent SEAL Team Six to pay Scalia, Thomas, Alto, etc., a visit? Keep talking…

mavenmaven June 29, 2012 at 7:05 pm

In Randland we only answer to the Austrians.

fuflans June 29, 2012 at 8:38 pm

this is my favorite comment of the day.

DahBoner June 30, 2012 at 7:27 pm

999!!!

valthemus June 29, 2012 at 7:17 pm

So the ballot counters and chad inspectors in Florida should pick up where they left off in 2000, Randy? Companies shoveling money into super PACs thanks to Citizens United should put away their checkbooks, Randy? I should be able to have you locked away in Gitmo for the forseeable future, Randy?

TribecaMike June 29, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Rand may want to give some more thought to his "fudge packing the court" concept. Diabetes is a scourge upon the land.

gogogodzilla June 29, 2012 at 7:31 pm

As I suspected: Idiocracy is a documentary.

Butch_Wagstaff June 29, 2012 at 7:46 pm

I've said it since I first saw the movie: Idiocracy was documentary sent from the future as warning.

tessiee June 29, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Gee whiz, it's too bad that there's not somebody in government to address issues like this, a scholar whose area of expertise is in Constitutional law, or anything.

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Tessie, if I was a woman, would you gay marry me?

DustBowlBlues June 29, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Is it just me, or does anyone else find themselves seeing visions of Rand Paul being kicked in the groin every time you see a photo of him?

Boojum June 29, 2012 at 8:39 pm

It's not just you.

scvirginia June 29, 2012 at 10:23 pm

When I can't avoid seeing the photos, my visions usually seem to involve nipple clamps. I can't explain it…

fuflans June 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm

i still have my little 4 inch effigy of rand paul in shorts (mounted on a popsicle stick) that i took to a guy fawkes day party and forgot to burn.

it is thumbtacked to our kitchen wall and we alternately laugh at it and then cry at it and then one of us says "this guy is in the US senate". then some of us cry again.

today i believe there is more crying.

LetUsBray June 29, 2012 at 8:52 pm

While the esteemed Rude Pundit describes Randy Rand as "a man who always looks as if he just masturbated on a woman in a bear suit", to me he looks more like a low-rent version of Richard Gere, trying to figure out how he's going to get the gerbil out of his butt.

wondering where i am June 30, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Wait. What?

Who was wearing the bear suit, Randy boy or the poor unnamed woman? Help. Can't figure this one out.

LetUsBray June 30, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Whichever scenario sounds more depraved to you, is probably the answer.

Terry June 29, 2012 at 9:05 pm

I hope he tries to form his own Supreme Court, just like he formed his own medical accreditation group when the real one wouldn't have him.

not that Radio June 30, 2012 at 10:38 am

He just needs to spell it "Supreem Court", kind of like Supreem Pizza

Antispandex June 29, 2012 at 9:43 pm

WELL, it's Rand Paul…so, I guess that settles it, fuckers! "Only the things that the court decides in our favor, shall be Constitutional, from now on"…and who could argue with that?

12X34X June 29, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Just because your daddy set up a dummy medical board to give you a dummy license, doesn't mean you're an actual doctor.

johnnyzhivago June 29, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Rand Paul is right – it's just a couple of people on the Supreme Court??? I mean WTF? Why not have 100 people? Or put it up to vote on the internet like Dancing With the Stars?

TribecaMike June 29, 2012 at 10:31 pm

All legal issues can be easily decided by a tractor pull at the country club, if milords' don't mind a little re-landscaping.

ttommyunger June 29, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Cases come in, decisions come out. Never a miscommunication, except for His Dumbness, the Grand Poohbah of Upper Buttcrack. I've heard all my life that ANYBODY can achieve high office in America. Dubya and Rand have driven that point home beyond anyone's wildest dreams (nightmares).

Nostrildamus June 30, 2012 at 12:57 am

Rand needs a briefing.

Isyaignert June 30, 2012 at 12:29 pm

He needs a smack in the head with a wrecking ball and 50 lashes with a wet logging chain.

And just because the Board of Ophthalmology says you're not a qualified eye surgeon doesn't mean you're not a qualified eye surgeon. Just start your own board of ophthalmology. Rand Paul will now establish his own Supreme Court.

“Just because a couple thousand toothless racists in Kentucky declare somebody to be ‘senatorial’ does not make it so. The whole state remains stupid.”

Hey Rand Paul – your hair plugs are fugly – they don't match the rest of you and you look really stupid, in addition to BEING really really stupid.

it's so funny when ultimately, it becomes obvious that the teabaggers don't understand the Constitution….

What, you think he should count 'em or something? Who the hell cares about actual numbers or majority rules or dumb stuff like that? Gimme my preconceived notions and leave me alone!

Goddamn socialists and their goddamn three co-equal branches of gubmint.

Unconstitutional. You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Rand "Maestro" Paul doesn't like to wear pants, because if you wear pants they get weinkled, which is Uncinstititional.

IS EVERYBODY GAY????

Just because the Congress says weed is illegal doesn't mean that I can't smoke it!

Have a good weekend…and pass those Doritos.

As a fan of easy listening music, I was very disappointed with Rand's A Brief Interlude cd. He's no Montovani, that's for sure. But since it was torrented, one tap on the Del button and it immediately became a vague and distant memory, just like his dad's decades in Congress.

He and Mitch McConnell are exactly the senators that Kentucky deserves.

Do it to Boner; it will make him cry.

MittBorg June 29, 2012 at 7:47 pm

For that schmendrick, I have a complete collection of whips and paddles.

Just saying "Hello" to Boner is enough to get the waterworks going.

The bong's just what he did while indulging in his preference to not learn anything, ever.

Um, his poppa is a Schlemiel, he's a baby Schlemiel..?

the people I know or know of (here in the DC area) spend the money in private high schools, expensive tutors(really expensive for private SAT tutoring) and private college "counselors"(not saying how they spread the money around or if they write essays and applications for the kids- ok, I'm saying they do). And these private schools make sure every kid gets in somewhere relatively decent(not Ivy but certainly not the local community colleges and sometimes far away at a little known private college)- short of a felony conviction(those come in college- earlier bad behavior was hushed up/paid for- yes, George Hughley of Landon/UVA- talking about you)

"but stupid rich kids shouldn't go to college either, because they crowd out more deserving students."

I'm not sure about that. It's helpful for smart poor or middle class kids to be educated about the real world, and if they're protected from the stupid rich fucks they'll have to work for/ with after college, are you doing anyone any favors?

And then there's the Pollyannish view that the stupid rich kids are gonna end up in positions of authority anyway so might as well try to reach 'em to teach 'em while you maybe still can?

Na that was a different guy, Marjoe was a child preacher and then on Falcon crest and other crappy TV shows.

DerrickWildcat June 30, 2012 at 1:20 am

Internships are the best way to learn about dumb fools in positions of power, rather moreso than encountering them as peers in a scenario where they're mostly harmless (as long as you don't have long hair, a vagina or dark skin).

If we didn't give their fellow aristocrats the cover of some letters from a fancy school to hire the rich morons, would they still end up in positions of authority?

GemlikeFlame July 1, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Yes, I know, though I'd have to sit down and think about the longevity of an infinite series of Rand Pauls. Bad nerd humor.
