Rand Paul: NoZe Brother?
Mr. Rand Paul, NoZe Brother? Hey, I didn't vote to let him into the Noble NoZe! But the evidence seems to point to him as a bonafide Brother, for the Democratic State Attorney General of Kentucky, Mr. Jack Conway, has used Mr. Paul's putative membership to attack him in their Senate race:
Why was Rand Paul a member of a secret society that called the Holy Bible a "hoax," that was banned for mocking Christianity and Christ? Why did Rand Paul once tie a woman up, tell her to bow down before a false idol and say his god was "Aqua Buddha."Well, Keko Muckety Muck, why indeed? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. Nah, just kidding. The answer is more likely found in an observation posted by "Swamp" on October 18, 2010 in the "Comments" section to a Christianity Today article by Sarah Pulliam Bailey, "Rand Paul Blasts Opponent's Ad Referencing Baylor" (October 18, 2010). Here's Swamp's comment:
As a graduate of Baylor University and part of a long line of family members with Baylor ties, I have to laugh (rather than cry) at the depths that some fools will descend to win an election. Jack Conway obviously does not know a thing about the culture of Baylor or anything about the NoZe Brotherhood. I could go on ad nauseum as to how idiotic this charge is, but it really makes me wonder what Conway was doing at age 20.Hey, I'm mildly curious about that myself, but I'm willing to wager that Mr. Conway wasn't attending either a Pink Tea or a Millard Fillmore, both hosted by that satirical organization sporting Groucho Marx noses, The Noble Noze Brotherhood, a secret fraternity about which Mr. Conway undoubtedly prefers to know less so as to use his ignorance all the more effectively.
Good thing that I'm not running for political office, else my proboscisial name "Brother AgNoZetic" would be held against me, as would particular photographs from a certain parody of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper, in which I played the host. Long sharp bread knives were out for me that day -- and would be again if I were a politician running against Mr. Conway.
Look, everybody was young once. Some of us were even members of clubs engaged in all sorts of juvenile behavior. Most of us eventually grow up.
It's long past time that 41-year-old Jack Conway also grew up.
UPDATE: Given all the interest in this topic, I figured that I ought to provide the actual reason that the NoZe Brotherhood got banned from Baylor, which had nothing to do with Rand Paul or his antics.
