Probable 2016 Presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) seems to have a deep-seated need to lie whenever he gets in front of a crowd. At a campaign event earlier this week, Dr. Paul, who is an ophthalmologist, declared that Ebola is “highly contagious” and that President Obama should not allow passengers arriving from West Africa to be admitted into the United States. What the good doctor neglected to tell his gathering of sycophants is that Ebola is, in fact, NOT highly contagious and can only be spread through contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person. But what can we expect from a man who lies about being a “board certified” eye doctor? Oh, Dr. Paul is indeed board certified, but not by the most recognized and respected professional certification board in his home state of Kentucky. Instead, Senator Paul is certified by a board that he and his wife created! That’s right: the doctor dispensing advice on Ebola is certified only by himself. Using this standard, I think I’ll declare myself a brain surgeon and go into practice in my hometown. One of my first patients, no doubt, would be Senator Paul, who is clearly in need of a transplant.
