The Twilight Zone, or maybe Monty Python

No, it can't be real.  There's no way that we could be living in a real world.  I feel like this campaign has gone to sleep and woken up in the Twilight Zone.

Could Rand Paul could be so out of touch that he truly thinks that Romney's campaign "has it in the bag"?

“You know, I think — I’m in the minority here, but I think the election is over,” said Paul, who was on to promote his new book “Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds.”
“I think that Romney has already won,” Paul continued. “The people really are tired of the debt. They’re tired of irresponsible leadership. I think they’re tired of having 23 million people out of work. So, I think you’ll find — and this is my prediction, and of course, I could be wrong. I am fallible.”
 Yes.  Yes, you are fallible, and you are wrong.  Every polling organization says that essentially, Romney has lost.  It's all over but counting the ballots.

Unless, of course, the Republican voter suppression machine is really going to be as successful as he thinks.


Airplane windows open?  From a man who probably has more miles in an airplane than I had zits as a teenager?  Really?  Is it possible that a man who is an acknowledged bishop of a church with millions of members could be so stupid?  So uninformed?  So unaware of the realities of the way our planet is formed that he doesn't know that exposure to air at the cruising altitude of a jet aircraft could kill him in three to five minutes due to a lack of oxygen?  Really?

Maybe instead of the Twilight Zone, this is a bad remake of a Monty Python movie...I keep expecting to see him around every corner these days.
