Rand Paul: Shit Happens
Lest this gets buried in another thread, let’s call up SFL’s tip for everyone’s amusement. Serial shoe-ingester Rand Paul provided another live demonstration of his foot-consuming prowess on ABC this morning, telling The Littlest Clintonista that preventable industrial catastrophes are just God’s way of making life more interesting:
I’ve heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it’s part of this sort of blame game society in the sense that it’s always got to be someone’s fault. Instead of the fact that maybe sometimes accidents happen. I mean, we had a mining accident that was very tragic and I’ve met a lot of these miners and their families. They’re very brave people to do a dangerous job. But then we come in and it’s always someone’s fault. Maybe sometimes accidents happen.
If we didn’t have to wake up and do some chores today, we would fact-check this down to the last definite article. Instead, we’ll just observe that the families of a few dozen dead miners and platform workers probably disagree.
