Who would you look up to as an embodiment of traditional American values? Who among our sterling public servants manifests virtues such as hard work, honesty, integrity, and fair play?
The Tea Party flatters itself as a values bastion. They are quick to tell you that they are the paragons of constitutional fidelity, self-reliance, Christian wholesomeness, and just all-around American Americanism. They aren’t welfare-cheating lazy moochers glued to their Obamaphones while pumping out 6 kids and buying vodka with food stamps. No, sir! Uncle Sam is not their baby daddy! All 47% of these Marxist sponges need to grab those bootstraps and look to the Tea Party for leadership on real values!
The University of Louisville’s medical school, looking to keep their students in that virtuous 53% of “producers,” took this advice and invited licensed ophthalmologist and part-time U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Toupee) as a guest speaker. Ethics and values are important in the medical profession, and no doubt the good doctor-senator would have some indispensable wisdom to share. This proved especially true for a student seeking exam prep advice.
Senator Paul’s answer confirmed everything you suspected about the real nature of Tea Party propaganda tactics. His reply:
“I never, ever cheated. I don’t condone cheating. But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important.”
So how did young Rand use this important tool? Please proceed, Senator.
“We spread the rumor that we knew what was on the test and it was definitely going to be all about the liver. We tried to trick all of our competing students into over-studying for the liver. So, that’s my advice. Misinformation works.”
Indeed it does, Doctor Paul. You and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Sleaze) could hold seminars for teaching these methods at Roger Ailes University.
