Does Rand Paul Believe Obama Hypnotized Jews?

Every time I write another zany political story I find myself thinking “Ok, there’s no way I can top that one.”

But I always forget about Rand Paul.

Now, the National Jewish Democratic Council is unveiling the Kentucky senate candidate’s ties to physicans’ group with some highly unusual beliefs.  A group of which Rand Paul considers himself to be a member.

From their latest blog post:

The Forward reported that Kentucky Republican Senate Candidate Rand Paul (R-KY) belongs to a group that believes President Barack Obama hypnotized Jewish voters in 2008. As reported by The Forward:

The rise to power of Barack Obama has been a vexing issue for many Republicans in the past two years. How did he ever get elected?

Well, it turns out the answer is simple: by hypnotizing the Jews.

Or at least that is what one group of conservative doctors thinks. The group, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which is based in Arizona, opposes Obama’s healthcare plan and is strongly against abortions. It also published an article in 2008 wondering if Obama is ‘a brilliant orator, or a hypnotist?’ The answer, according to the paper published on the group’s website, is that Obama has used in his speeches ‘covert hypnosis intended only for licensed therapists on consenting patients.’ And those most affected by Obama’s covert hypnosis were Jewish voters. Or else, the paper asks, how could you explain the fact that ‘many Jews are supporting a candidate who is endorsed by Hamas, Farrakhan, Khalidi and Iran?’

Frankly, I find the group’s alleged position that HIV does not cause AIDS to be more problematic, simply because as medical professionals they really should know better.

But it still begs the question, does Paul believe that Obama is a hypnotist who befuddled his Jewsih voters?

The media is more than welcome to ask him, I’m sure, but he’d likely just run away from the cameras again.

Disliking Rand Paul's politics, as I do, I find myself in the unusual position of supporting
him, in this instance. The polling question here, as others I've noted recently, is asking people to form a decision with no real information on which to base one.
On the other hand, the group to which he reportedly belongs sounds like the medical version of "The Flat Earth Society." Yes, no surprise that they are from Arizona, and, Holy Cow, I even have relatives there! None of them are physicians.

There may be many reasons why Rand joined this group, and he may not necessarily believe in all its tenets.

There are plenty of things to criticize Rand about, why bother to write an article that alleges he believes something just because he is in a certain group?

Thats ridiculous! I don't think hardly anyone believes that, unless their high or something. But the fact that that organization is based in AZ doesn't surprise me. This state is quite ridiculous!

Robin Marty must have been desperate to fill his weekly or daily quota of little nonsenses. And asking us to vote! Is he crazy?

This article left me completely speechless, and that is something, which is rather difficult to do.

I'll be looking more into Rand Paul but you, Robin Marty, are clearly a vacuous sensationalist. You gave us nothing but hype here and smeared the name of one of the few truly anti war politicians we've ever had.
