Rand Paul the Republican from Kentucky was nominated by the Republicans in the race for U.S. Senate. The Tea Party contingent was overjoyed for a solid day. Then Rand Paul opened his mouth. On national television Rand Paul defended a restaurant owners right to serve or refuse to serve an individual based on the color of their skin, or their religion.
Then after shoving one foot down his throat on the issue of Civil Rights the topic turned to the BP Deepwater Horizon Rig gushing oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Rand Paul said that the Obama Administration is being to hard on BP because "accidents happen." When I spill coffee on my rug that is an accident. When millions, even billions of gallons of raw crude goes gushing into the Gulf endangering the economy of five states for at least one year that is an extreme F*ck Up.
Perhaps what Mark Twain said was true "Better to be thought of as stupid than to open your mouth and prove people correct.
