Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is already well-known for his flip-flops, and on everything from the Civil Rights Act to vaccines to Iran to drones. Of greater notability, though, is that he’s indirectly promoting that unstable yes-one-minute, no-the-next status to aid his presidential campaign.
Yup, Randy’s now selling flip-flops that bear his campaign logo, along with many other odd items. Check them out!
You can literally “stand with Rand” in these flip-flops.
The campaign sells these for only $20 from its website (which now labels them as “sandals”). His history of stance switcheroos (see video below) makes this item rather hypocritical for the campaign to offer these flip flops, though.
But there are a lot more strange items in Paul’s campaign promo inventory, too, and not just the “Hillary’s Hard Drive” that If You Only News told you about on April 13.
The Matching Tinfoil Hat Costs Extra.
The campaign calls this item, available for $15, the “NSA Spy Cam Blocker.” According to the conspiracy fearists at RandPaul.com:
That little front facing camera on your laptop or tablet can be a window for the world to see you – whether you know it or not!
Jus’ Randy Wit It
Who needs “Beats by Dre” when you can get them right from Paul himself? (Consumer alert: any beats produced by these earphones may be to an entirely different drummer.)
A Gator Clip Might Have Been More Appropriate (But Just As Dumb)
These lovely wineglasses ($40 for two) aren’t the items that many of Paul’s supporters would presumably hope for, but he’s not offering any bongs, either. Just like his dad, Rand Paul only uses a legal marijuana argument in promotion of states’ rights, hoping to reel in younger generations to his NeoConfederate, state-superiority stances. (He does support medical use of marijuana, and believes prison sentences for possession should be reduced; he’s never called for legalization, though.)
Um, Don’t Most People Remain Seated While Driving?
Floor mats for your car? Decorated with an “I stand with Rand” logo? Can somebody explain this one, please?
‘Cow Pie’ Is Also A Term For This Game
Whoever decided to decorate it with the campaign logo apparently forgot one key term used in this bag-tossing game. If your bean bag hits the board but doesn’t touch the hole, it’s called a “cow pie” – the same term used for smelly bullsh*t (of which Paul’s campaign reeks).
As A Kid, His Nickname Was ‘Snuggles’
He’s soft. He keeps you warm. He wants to wrap himself around you. And you can get this blankie (listed to be “Rand Woven”) for only $75!
The Matching Tinfoil Hat Costs Extra: The Flip-Flop Edition
This “Don’t Drone Me, Bro!” t-shirt exemplifies another Paul flip-flop. In March 2013, he filibustered against appointment of a new CIA chief for 13 hours, claiming now-director John Brennan would use spying drones against U.S. citizens. Only one month later, though, Paul told Fox News he supported use of drones.
If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and $50 in cash, I don’t care if a drone kills him or policeman kills him(.)
