Proof that there is a God:

U.S. Tea Party GOP Senator Rand Paul v. A sweet young black sales clerk

I was just involved in the best kind of incident at Verizon Center before tonight's Washington Caps hockey game.

At the Caps Team Store pro-segregationist, Senator Rand Paul, tried to cut in line to pay for an item. The sweet young African-American check out lady very politely asked him to go to the end of the line. He ignored her, and wouldn't budge (so much for his opposition to "entitlement"). So I turned to him and pointed to the end of the line, and I told him "the end of the line is over there sir." At which point he walked away in a huff, with "steam coming out of his ears."

(When running for the Senate, Rand Paul said he opposed part of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that outlawed racial segregation...He said he did not support the part of the law that made it a crime to discriminate on the basis of race.)

When I thanked Hugh for allowing me to post his story, he added this little nugget:

Sweet black lady and old furloughed EPA bureaucrat foil entitlement for tea party GOP pro-segregation anti-Govt US Senator.

    Well, the #GOP #teaparty just doesn't know where the back end is. That's all.

    Another one who should just trade in his suits for a white robe, and white pointed hood hat.

  • joe ebbitt

    are you sure it was Rand? did he take off his hood?

  • PinkMoore703

    oh yuck! Now I know why his hair and face look so greasy all the time. Not only that, but he's a frickin' doctor!

    Awesome story!

  • Oh. Mygod. On the other hand (no pun), I'm not surprised. Disgusting.

    this summer, circumstance found me standing next to rand paul (my god, is he short!) in a men's room at national airport.
    he left without washing his hands.
