Rand Paul Throws Al Sharpton Under the Bus

No one is safe when Rand detects a shift in public sentiment. When Rand needs to flip, no man, of any color, will be able to stop him.

Rand once demonstrated that he was color blind.

Rand has flipped his view on that great battle, where there is no good side, between coppers and  urban primitives.

He once met with Sharpton, whose view is that there is widespread police brutality against blacks. Last November in an op-ed in TIME magazine, Rand offered no support for police.

Things are different now. The Post-Courier reports:
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul launched his campaign in South Carolina Thursday without addressing the main reason national media have descended on the Charleston area – the white police officer who was videotaped gunning down a black man as he ran away from him....
Rand, The Post and Courier’s Schuyler Kropf reported, did address the now-nationally followed shooting on CNN on Wednesday, where he cautioned against broad-brush coloring of law enforcement.
“First, I would like to say it’s just a terrible tragedy, and I hope justice does occur,” Paul said on CNN. “But I do think that sometimes — the way we report news — we tend to report the news of crime, and so we see a lot of crime, and we think it’s representative of the whole. And I think when you look at police across our country, 98, 99 percent of them are doing their job on a day-to-day basis and aren’t doing things like this.”

I do not expect any more Rand-Al Sharpton meetings (well, not unless the polls shift).



  1. "there is no good side, between coppers and urban primitives."

    That, is a very well put sentence. I'm tucking that one away and will recycle it for you.

  2. How disappointing. I took the title too literally and was hoping to see a youtube vid of Randy actually slinging Al under a speeding Greyhound.
