OMG Rand Paul Chooses Aircraft Carrier As Campaign Backdrop

I told you Rand was going to try and out warmonger Cruz Missiles.

Rachel  Stoltzfoos reports:
In an apparent effort to toughen up his image, Republican Sen. Rand Paul chose the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown to serve as a backdrop during his April presidential campaign announcement tour.
Paul will make the first announcement in his home state of Kentucky April 7, then head to New Hampshire, South Carolina, Iowa and Nevada to complete the 5-day announcement tour. His backdrop in South Carolina will be the USS Yorktown in Charleston Harbor, reported Politico Playbook.... 
Paul’s libertarian image could get him into trouble on foreign policy in the race. He’s working to differentiate himself from his father Ron Paul’s isolationist foreign policy, saying he supports “peace through strength.



  1. And it's only going to get worse between now and Super Tuesday.

  2. Reminds me of Thatcher with goofy goggles on, parading around in the top of a tank turret, or Bush landing on a that carrier with a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

    I wonder if the majority of unquestioning in the military ever get tired of being used over and over again like a Hollywood prop or if they even recognize it.

    1. Li think that would be Dukakis rather than Thatcher.

  3. How much does it cost to reserve a PR opportunity on a ship or military site?
