Rand Paul’s Flatizza Run Causes Near Riot

Never mind grandstanding in Iowa and New Hampshire.

People in This Town absolutely lose their s— when presumed presidential contenders — in this case, Sen. Rand Paul — step out for a bite to eat.

A simple visit by the Kentucky Republican to the home of the global leader in 11-inch sandwiches resulted in a barrage of emails bearing surreptitiously snapped photos and links to bizarro tweets that flooded the HOH inbox as if the second coming were upon us.

 

 

To recap:

 

He came.

    THE REPUBLICANS HAVE CONTINUED THEIR WAR ON THE UNEMPLOYED THIS WEEK. REPUBLICANS SUCH AS JOHN BOEHNER CONTINUE TO REFUSE TO PASS THE MUCH NEEDED UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL THAT WOULD GIVE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO THE MORE THAN 2 MILLION FAMILIES WITHOUT BENEFITS SINCE LATE DECEMBER. THESE MILLIONS OF FAMILIES HAVE BEEN FACING EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, PERSONAL BANKRUPTCIES, AND HOMELESSNESS, WHILE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CONTINUES TO PLAY “PARTY POLITICS” AND CONTINUES TO USE THEIR VOTE AS POLITICAL LEVARAGE AND AS BARGAINING CHIPS, TO FURTHER THEIR POLITICAL PARTY’S AGENDA. THEY HAVE SHOWN A TOTAL LACK OF COMPASSION AND CONCERN FOR THESE POOR FAMILIES STRUGGLING DAY TO DAY. FIVE MONTHS HAS GONE BY WITHOUT PASSING THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION. THESE FAMILIES HAVE LOST HOPE AND HOME AND CREDIT WHILE THESE POLITICANS PLAY THEIR GAMES. LETS US WRITE OR CALL OUR REPUBLICAN SENATORS AND DEMAND THAT THEY SHOW A LITTLE HUMAN COMPASSION AND DECENCY AND PASS THIS BILL IMMEDIATELY.
