Douchebag Of The Day – Sen. Rand Paul

Sen. Paul is apparently tweeting from the Texas GOP convention. The quotation marks presumably mean that somebody else just said that. I have a feeling this tweet will be remembered come 2016.

UPDATE: Nope. Sen. Rand Paul actually did just say that himself. Not only that, check out who he just suggested become prisoners of the Taliban.

Sen. Rand Paul on Friday likened Democrats to the recently released Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay in a speech here at the Texas GOP convention. “Mr. President, you love to trade people,” the Kentucky Republican said to laughs, a reference to the deal made for the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. “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…” He was drowned out by cheers. Afterward, Paul’s spokesman Sergio Gor said, “The senator was kidding — except for Mrs. Pelosi. That was serious.”

Oh yes, this will be remembered.
