Rand Paul: The Rosa Parks of big business

What better definition of “Republican” than GOP Teabagger Senate candidate Rand Paul. He’s not a big fan of protecting black people from discrimination, but boy oh boy, if you take on big oil, especially while they’re dumping tens of thousands of barrels of oil a day into the Gulf, Rand Paul gets vewy vewy angwy.

What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of, you know, “I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.” I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I’ve heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it’s part of this sort of blame game society in the sense that it’s always got to be someone’s fault. Instead of the fact that maybe sometimes accidents happen.

Rand Paul: The Rosa Parks of big business. He’s not gonna sit on the back of the gushing oil platform.
