Guns, Goons, And Goofballs

Tell me again how reasonable and smart Sen. Rand Paul is when he's fundraising for fringe nutjob groups like the National Association for Gun Rights, guys so deep into Black Helicopter land that they make the NRA look sane.  Ezra Klein:

The New York Times calls Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) one of the Republican Party’s “rising stars.” The Daily Beast says he’s “a smoother, more pragmatic political operator” than his father, former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Tex.). All that seems true. So riddle me this: What’s the upside for Paul to put his name on e-mails like this one, which landed in my inbox this morning?

It’s one thing for no-name pols to work on the fringes. But Paul, at this point, has a lot to lose. Yet here he is, suggesting the current president of the United States is working with “anti-American globalists plot[ting] against our Constitution.” And for what?

He's just as nuts as his dad, if not more so.  Check these guys out:

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.

These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.

Ezra has the entire letter, in all its frothing madness, at the top link.  This is a sitting US Senator signing his name to this absolute lunacy, and as his constituent I am once again embarrassed and angry at his staggering ignorance and depressing chicanery.

Rand Paul is different from his father.  He's far, far worse.
