Rand Paul, what if a Dem joked about trading YOU "instead of 5 Taliban"? Hmm?

not funny hahaha no

This tweet is already a couple of days old, but calling out Rand Paul for his tone deaf idiocy never gets old:

rand paul tweet Bergdahl trade Dems

He got a lot of Twitter backlash, but check out the very first reply he received:

"Isn't that redundant? and how would you tell the difference?"

Two class acts.

What patriots.

What jokesters.

What the f***.

The real joke is Rand Paul, a very, very bad one.

So let's get this straight. According to Paul and his fanboy @varifrank, the words Democrats and Taliban are interchangeable and/or President Obama should have handed over Dems to the Taliban. To be imprisoned. And tortured. And possibly killed. Isn't that a knee-slapper? Are we laughing yet?

No. We are not.

Some "jokes" are not funny, Rand Paul. And that you would make light of a very serious situation, that you would imply that Democrats' lives are worthless, that you would equate them with deadly enemies is pretty appalling.

He's your guy, GOP. This is the lowlife many in your party would like to see as commander in chief, residing in the White House, attending state dinners, handling delicate negotiations with other world leaders, and as the president who is responsible for the health and welfare of all Americans.

Go ahead, Republicans. Make Rand Paul your nominee. We dare you.

Fla. Gov. Rick Scott campaign staff made racist jokes (allegedly)

outreach my ass reach out inclusive

Psst! Rick Scott! Outreach means exactly that: reaching out. Outreach is also what the Republican Autopsy called for. Yes, they referred to their own post-2012 election report as an autopsy, because... suicide. They admitted that they needed "to do things differently."

The GOP not only needs a reinvention, they need an intervention.

Via Think Progress:

On late Thursday, billionaire Mike Fernandez abruptly resigned his post as the finance co-chair of Governor Rick Scott’s (R-FL) reelection campaign. The prominent Cuban-American health care mogul’s departure has fueled rumors of racism among Scott’s campaign staff.

Tensions between Scott’s campaign staff and Fernandez had been building for weeks. And the last straw, according to people within the campaign who spoke with the Miami Herald this weekend, was an incident in which several of Scott’s campaign staffers allegedly began joking around in a cartoonish, over-the-top Mexican accent while on the way to a Mexican restaurant.

They just can't help themselves.

Think Progress has more.

VIDEO- The Big Rafael "Ted" Cruz "meh" on Dick Cheney shooting his friend: "Look, it happens."

ted cruz steve king hunting

Ironically, Dick Cheney recently claimed Sen. Mike Enzi lied. Pot, kettle...

Even more ironically, Dick Cheney had a "major" gun malfunction during a charity hunting contest.

And who can forget that time back in 2006 when he shot his 78-year-old hunting pal, Harry Whittington, in the face?

Now even more ironically, Rafael "Ted" Cruz went hunting with his own little friend, Rep. Steve King, and made a few tasteless comments about the Cheney incident that he apparently thought were real knee-slappers. Yes, Raffy Cruz thinks Raffy Cruz is funny.

Cruz:

"Yeah, look, it happens."

Of course, King, not to be outclasslessed, said:

It "doesn't bother me a bit. The way I understood it, he was standing in the wrong place."

Can't get more compassionate than that, can you? Maybe Whittington should invite them on a hunting trip to express his gratitude.

Now take a look at Raffy's stand-up routine. He strutted his tasteless stuff during a keynote address at a Defenders of Freedom event in Le Mars, Iowa. Don't forget to tip your server.

Cruz:

"In the two weeks that followed [the Cheney shooting incident], there were over 200 calls to Texas Parks and Wildlife asking, how much for a license to shoot a Republican lawyer."

VIDEO: CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) audience laughs, applauds Obama "is on his way to hell" crack

not funny Via nataliedee.com

Leave it to the National Rifle Association President David Keene to inspire an outburst suggesting that President Obama is "on his way" to hell. And leave it to a conservative conference to laugh and clap at such a crack:

Keene, speaking at a regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside of St. Louis, Missouri:

If we remember what it is we’re about, and what it is we want to accomplish, and if we organize around those principles and stand for them, people will stand with us. They will make those calls. They will pound the pavement. They will demand of those who they elect to public office and whose salaries they pay through their taxes that they represent them, and not some mayor from New York, or some president from Chicago who’s on his way to Lord knows where when he leaves office.

Audience member:

Hell! [audience laughter]

Not a word from Mr. NRA admonishing such a hostile and tasteless response from the (likely) "Christian" audience member.
