Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Apparently clinging to the old adage “there’s no such thing as bad publicity,” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has inexplicably decided that the endorsement of pageant-walkin’, not-much-else-doin’ Sarah Palin actually has political value in this day and age.

“I love an endorsement by Sarah Palin, what’s not to love?” Paul enthused on CNN. The addition of Palin to “Team Rand” comes because the failed reality star believes the Kentucky senator “gets it,” unlike his current adversary, New Jersey governor Chris “King of Bacon” Christie.

“Rand Paul understands. He gets the whole notion of ‘don’t tread on me’ government,” said Palin on — where else — Fox “News.” “Whereas Chris Christie is for big government and trying to go along to get along in so many respects.”

Christie is also a phony who likes to perform for the camera, Palin added, without a trace of irony or self-awareness. “He’s got a schtick going there where he’s got a YouTube videographer following him around, kind of these setup situations sometimes so he can be seen as perhaps a little bit avant-garde and going rogue on things.”

We all know Palin is for “small government” considering she instantly made Alaska’s government smaller by quitting the job halfway through her only term, amid multiple ethics investigations. But Team Rand… well, Team Rand is happy to be big… big enough for everyone!

“Team Rand, you know, whatever that means, can include a lot of people,” explained Paul. “What I’ve been telling people is that I want to grow the Republican Party and that means that some of the libertarian ideas of respecting people’s privacy, respecting the Fourth Amendment, not spying on Americans, I think that appeals to a lot of young people and will bring new people into our party if we become the party of privacy. It’s hurt the president significantly.”

Paul is considered to be a leading contender for his party’s nomination in 2016, but between making juvenile, mean-spirited “fat jokes” about his possible opponent and surrounding himself with political lightweights like Sarah Palin — who has spent the last five years not being politically active, but instead parading herself and her family in front of reality TV cameras and posting on social media — one would have to wonder if he’s serious about this at all.

    As usual that broad is a dollar short and a day late. The Christie/Paul ship sailed over a week ago and Paul’s tail was between his legs. Lord that woman is dumb. Apparently the delay in her comment was due to her handlers being on vacation. Next distraction please.

    Well Mr. Paul, your “Party of Privacy,” kinda gets blow all to Hell when your
    Party sticks it’s sanctimonious nose in between a woman, and her doctor.
    Presuming to dictate to her about her reproductive, and health decisions.
    These Right Wingers can’t make a point without the brown stuff starting
    to gush out their ears.

    I am dreaming of a white ticket….! Paul-Palin 2016! One can always dream!

      Dom, do you really think Palin will take second banana again? Especially to one she considers one of her “heirs”? I am hoping for a more self-destructive ticket like Paul-Cruz. Those two will result in the complete collapse of the Republican Party as nationally relevant.

      • Dominick Vila

        With Rush Limbaugh as Secretary of State.

        • Jim Myers

          Or, a Supreme Court Justice.

      The sad part of that ticket is how many people would actually vote for them.

      • DurdyDawg

        Not nearly as many as you fear.

  • rhallnj

    Christie might have something choice to say about “quitters”.

  • JDavidS

    Your first…and biggest clue that your views are probably way off base? Palin agrees with you.

  • 2hheels2

    This is good you have a guy like Rand who is an complete disaster to American. And a clown supporting him. A true political marriage of crazies.

  • Mary Ann Hoogeveen

    Palin and Rand 2 idiots from the same family,the teapublicans.

  • 1mikeg

    Christie must be exstatic to not be associated with that kiss of death.

  • howa4x

    Having a Palin endorsement is the kiss of death. What drugs are Rand Paul taking? He has to be hallucinating. I live in NJ and Christie is no prize. He’s shut family planning centers, vetoed same sex marriage, and is a bully and a name caller. The only thing he can’t do is to repeal our tough gun laws. Otherwise he is as conservative as any of them. He even refuses to set up health care exchanges. The only reason Democrats are supporting him is because they are morally corrupt and are afraid of him because he is an angry governor. Once he gets on a national stage his giant flaws will be exposed. If Republicans see him as a savior they are really in trouble.

  • Budjob

    The back of my balls have more common sense than Sarah Palin and Rand Paul combined!

  • Elliot J. Stamler

    I love Sarah Palin….because I love being a Democrat. Every time she expresses herself in all her witless boobery she helps my party win votes.
