If You Accuse Rand Paul of Plagiarism, He’d Like to Kill You

That’s what a duel is

Loony libertarian Rand Paul is feeling the heat from criticisms that he has repeatedly engaged in plagiarism in his speeches, and today on ABC’s This Week he expressed a desire to kill his critics: Rand Paul on Plagiarism Charges: If Dueling Were Legal in Kentucky…

Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday that accusations of plagiarism in his speeches makes [sic] him wish dueling were legal in Kentucky.

“I take it as an insult, and I will not lie down and say people can call me dishonest, misleading or misrepresenting — I have never intentionally done so and like I say, ‘If dueling were legal in Kentucky, if they keep it up, you know it’d be a duel challenge,’ ” Paul said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Yes, that’s what he’s saying; if it were legal, he’d really like to go all 187 on Rachel Maddow.

It’s a joke, of course! One of those hilarious knee-slappers the right wing is famous for.
