Rand Paul: Poking Fun At Jeb And Hillary

Filed under: General — Dana @ 5:10 pm

[guest post by Dana]

Slyly killing two dynasties with one stone, Rand Paul released a “fake” phone call between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, humorously mocking the political dynasties of both families:

BUSH: “Hey, Hill. It’s Jeb.”

CLINTON: “Hey, Jeb. To what do I owe this pleasure?”

BUSH: “Well, it’s true — I’m thinking about running for president.”

CLINTON: “Well, Jeb, so am I.”

BUSH: “I just wanted to call and give you a heads-up in hopes we could work something out.”

CLINTON: “What do you mean, Jeb? It’s clearly my turn: Bush, Clinton, Bush. Now, Clinton.”

BUSH: “Well, Hillary, there hasn’t been a Republican White House without a Bush since 1977, and we’re ready to be back.”

CLINTON: “Let me shoot straight with you, Jeb, OK? Bill and I are dead broke and need a place to stay. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is calling me home — I’ve still got the back door key. Being president offers a lot more job security than writing another memoir.”

BUSH: “Well, the Bushes have weathered attacks before. And READ MY LIPS, Hillary: We’re not backing down this time.”

CLINTON: “Well, you’re right — maybe we can work something out. We both agree on so many issues: bigger government, Common Core, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

BUSH: “Well, we’ve both got problems. You’ve got problems with the grass roots, and I’ve got all those damn conservatives. What say, we make a deal?”

[Call beeps in.]

BUSH: “Sorry, Hillary, but I have to go. Mitt keeps calling.”

CLINTON: “Oh, for crying out loud.”

It’s pretty funny to listen to because the actors’ voices sound just like the real Bush and Clinton.

  1. i pretty reliably see the humor in things

  2. Hello.

  3. RaPaul does have a modest sense of humor going for him. That should get him of a scrape or two.

  4. oligarchy lol?

  5. That is funny. If Rand were not himself part of a 2 generation political family with some baggage the joke would be even better and more cutting.

  6. Rand Paul should stick to this kind of stuff. Being a gadfly. Cruz too. At least they’re credible on “authenticity”. Rubio should work to get the nominee the Miami vote — nobody else is going to believe there’s anything sincere about him.

  7. Side note: Rubio missed the Keystone vote today. He was fundraising instead. Does it really matter? At this point in time, what difference does it make…. the veto is happening.

  8. If they have 67 votes, Obama might think twice about a veto.

  9. Rubio is known to be among the supporters of the Keystone Pipeline bill.

  10. In Israel, there are no 60 second ads, if I am correct, but political parties get to broadcast ads in bloc, so they try to create Saturday Night Live type skits, like this one, so people will watch them and circulate them over the Internet.

  11. 10. Brit Hume says Diva the Won should put on her best big boy pants and be conciliatory toward Beebs and maybe the latter won’t be so motivated to steal her lunch before Congress.

  12. I’m sure that if Rubio’s vote had been needed to put Keystone over the top today he’d have been there. It was good to see some Dem votes, though. I am still not 100% convinced Obama will veto Keystone if it passes both houses with considerable Dem support. It would just be a petulant and childish “because I can” vote for him, and he’s seen the polls I’m sure. There are many other bills coming down the pike that he can veto to prove his manhood– bills that he cares about much more, on policy that he’s more personally invested in.

  13. Justin Amash is wrong on this. Our insatiable hunger for brown people’s hydrocarbons has misshaped our foreign policy for too long. We should get our hands on as much white North Americans’ oil as we can.

  14. Indeed,nk.

  15. I was an SE and I gave up.

    Otherwise agree completely.

  16. i like ice cream but not with poopoo in it

  17. Meh.

    I don’t find it very funny but I do find it quite sophomoric.

  18. Breaking on FOX News, Romney announces he’s out of presidential race – just too difficult. Former financial backers and former staffers unwilling to sign up for duration. Despite leading in the polls, Romney withdraws.

  19. praise jesus

    happyfeet (a037ad)

  20. but now we’re gonna be stuck with poverty FOREVER

    Mitt was gonna patch that up for us

    oh well

  21. Re:20. Now Jeb & Huck need to do the right thing.

  22. President Monroe was an isolationist, and pretty damn good ice cream flavorwise.

  23. You know what would be funny, a fake phone call from Ron Paul to Rand Paul with Ron telling Rand that he had decided to run for president again because the country needed him.

  24. Mittens is out!

    /me does happy dance

    redc1c4 (6d1848)

  25. red,

    Yes, but he has done what he intended to do: Stop Jeb from running away with it. You should do a happy dance for that, too.

    “I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee.”

    That second sentence is key to not only understanding Romney’s thinking about his own candidacy (or lack thereof) but also how he feels about the race more generally. His motivation to reconsider his past denials of interest in a third race seemed designed to slow the momentum being built by former Florida governor Jeb Bush. The two men have a testy relationship, and Romney has made clear privately and in kinder terms publicly that he didn’t think Jeb was the right choice for the party.
