Dumb James Dobson Switches Endorsement To Rand Paul After Realizing He's Pro-Life
James Dobson, the strange old Jeebus coot from the 1900s, is apparently still alive and still weighing in on political races that have nothing to do with him and about which he is ill-informed. Consider the current Kentucky GOP Senate primary, where FREEDOM SPAWN Doctor Rand Paul is on the verge of upsetting Mitch McConnell's hand-picked candidate, Trey Grayson, a generic establishment robot who loves war and death, everywhere. Grayson got Dick Cheney's endorsement, which is considered awesome in Kentucky. And until very recently, Grayson also had James Dobson's endorsement, locking up the Fundies. But then idiot James Dobson realized he had no idea what he was talking about, and he still doesn't, but he's switching his endorsement to Rand Paul anyway.
Apparently it takes months of investigation and consultation for James Dobson to determine whether a candidate is pro-life or pro-choice, which is usually one of the first three or four things a candidate explicitly makes clear in official campaign literature. Also, Rand Paul is obviously pro-life, THIS IS A KENTUCKY GOP PRIMARY, JESUS.
BOWLING GREEN, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. James Dobson has changed his endorsement in the Republican primary for United States Senate in Kentucky. Below is the text of Dr. James Dobson's endorsement of Dr. Rand Paul in the race for U.S. Senate.
Dr. James Dobson: "Have you ever made an embarrassing mistake? I did just that last week. I was given misleading information about the candidacy of Dr. Rand Paul, who is running in the Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate. Senior members of the GOP told me Dr. Paul is pro-choice and that he opposes many conservative perspectives, so I endorsed his opponent.
“But now I've received further information from OB/GYN's in Kentucky whom I trust, and from interviewing the candidate himself.
“I now know that he is avidly pro life. He believes that life begins at conception.
“He opposes earmarking and supports Israel. He identifies with the Tea Party movement and believes in home schooling. Sounds like my kind of man."
(Since when did "home schooling" become a firm Fundie requirement? Must have something to do with opposing socialism, which Jesus hates.)
Anyway. The Paultards are probably correct in applying their one explanation for everything to this situation: THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TRYING TO DESTROY RAND PAUL! Pretty much, right? He does not love bombing everyone as much as he ought to. So Dick Cheney or Bill Kristol or whoever must have recently given Dobson a call and said "You would love this Trey Grayson! YOU WOULD HATE RAND PAUL. Rand Paul hates the opposite of whatever you like. Also! Jerusalem! Must remain out of Muslim hands for the Rapture! And Rand Paul is Muslim, oh noes! Goodbye, James."
