Rand Paul Makes Trade Joke, Liberals Show They Have No Sense Of Humor

But, then, we knew Liberals are generally devoid of any humor, especially regarding politics. Their idea of “funny” is jokes about assassinating George Bush and jokes about Conservatives dying.

(The Blaze) In a speech at the Texas GOP Convention in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) cracked a joke at Democrats’ expense that’s sure to rile up his political opponents.

“Mr. President, you love to trade people,” Paul said, according to Politico. “Why don’t we set up a trade? But this time, instead of five Taliban, how about five Democrats? I’m thinking John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi…”

The crowd reportedly erupted in cheers. (snip)

When he was later asked about the comments during a news conference, Paul reiterated that he was only joking about trading Democrats. He also included a joke in his explanation of his previous joke.

“It was a joke. Except for Nancy Pelosi, I was serious about her,” he said, later adding, “Well, I mean, it’s humor, and I hope there’s room for humor. I thought it was funny. It was meant to be humorous.”

Democrats think it’s the height of humor to raise taxes on Someone Else. The Blaze includes some Liberal tweets which show typical liberal outrage. In the Politico article comments we see

  • How about 2 Cubans and an Indian posing as Americans and a couple of screaming harpies. Cruz Rubio Jindal Bachman and Palin (If a Republican wrote that, Liberals would claim raaaaacism)
  • Rand Paul is Buzz Windrip the very politician Sinclair Lewis predicted would eventually rise to power and become America’s Adolf Hitler: “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross”–It Can’t Happen Here
  • I can top that Rand – lets just BOMB THE FOCK out of the next GOP get-together in Texas. That would leave me in stitches :)
  • You sound like a another delusional tbag birther bs artist, FYI 80 % of Americans want nothing to do with the inbred lying idiocy of the racist, bigoted, misogynist, homophones tbags, you’re a flake outcast freaks are not fighting for anything except your own weird oddball racist agenda that the majority Americans will never support, are you curious as to why Palin loves black kock.

Actually, I suppose they do have a sense of humor. They voted for Obama twice. (OK, that was an easy joke). The real problem with Liberals and politics are that they are way too intense. There’s no middle ground for them. Everything is an assault. Everything is racist, sexist, homophobia, some sort of “ist” or “phobia”. Any disagreement with Obama is treated like The End Of The World and The Worst Thing Ever. They get worked up like someone threw their puppy off the Empire State Building on almost every subject. You are Not Allowed to criticize the government in their world. Everything is entirely too hardcore.
