‘Pardon Me While I Play The Graaand Piano’

16 August 2014 @ 00:41

Via the New York Post’s Page Six, we know that Senator Rand Paul likes to hob-nob with The Beautiful People.

As reported by Richard Johnson:

The biggest surprise among the intellectual elite at the East Hampton Library fund-raiser — co-sponsored by liberal Alec Baldwin — on Saturday afternoon was the conservative triumvirate of Rand Paul, Bill O’Reilly and George Pataki, who all showed up as guests.

While Hillary Clinton was at a fund-raiser for the Clinton Foundation in nearby Water Mill, collecting up to $50,000 per couple, Sen. Paul (R-Ky.) was schmoozing for free and getting tips on where to go in Montauk for a lobster roll.

When informed that Gosman’s Dock — recommended by O’Reilly — was avoided by the locals, who prefer Duryea’s, Paul said, “I can’t believe O’Reilly was sending me to a tourist trap.” Both men are friends of novelist Nelson DeMille, who was signing copies of “The Quest.”

Pataki, the former governor, came with his daughter Allison, who was inscribing her best seller, “The Traitor’s Wife.”

Baldwin, whose foundation co-sponsors the annual event, told me his military style haircut is for his role as the CIA spymaster supervising Tom Cruise in “Mission: Impossible 5.”

Bob Colacello rushed in late to buy a copy of Aerin Lauder’s coffee-table book, “Beauty at Home.”

Once Michael Shnayerson signed the last copy of his tome, “The Big Book of the Hamptons,” he said, “Good! Now I can go to my pre-wedding party.” The author married Gayfryd Steinberg on Sunday.

Other authors under the tent included Robert A. Caro, Lee Grant, Dick Cavett and Henry Bushkin.

This is no surprise to me, as I concluded a while back that Paul is nothing but a typical Hack [I hope, Senator, you like your new RINO friends — I hear Billy and Georgie are real fun company].

However, this Page Six report by Emily Smith is very disappointing:

After Sen. Rand Paul took some heat for partying with the “rich and famous” in the Hamptons, Sen. Ted Cruz is next in line.

Cruz, another conservative looking to run for president, will be fêted Friday at the home of lawyer Bob Giuffra on First Neck Lane.

A source quipped that the Southampton lane, which boasts John Paulson and Chris Burch as residents, “is like Halloween for politicians. They go trick-or-treating up the street.”

VP Joe Biden is also staying on First Neck this week, and Nancy Pelosi was seen there last week.

A source added, “All the DC guys have their SUVs and posses. They look like rap stars when they arrive in their vehicles — until they get out.”

WTF, Ted?

As I wrote in June about two other of our so-called compatriots:

If I could, I would ask Governors Pence and Walker if they make a habit of hanging around with The Conservative Beautiful People, if they consider the members of the GOP Establishment worthy of their respect.

It’s the same type of question Sam or John Adams would have asked [and in a few cases did ask] of their fellow Patriots who hobnobbed with British Officers or appointed Crown officials.

We are engaged in a desperate fight to Restore our Freedoms and Liberties.  And one of our biggest obstacles is that many of those who claim they are on our side are, in fact, Loyalists to the Despotic Regime that now rules in our Post-Constitutional America.

We cannot afford to misplace our trust in any individuals who make nice with The Enemy.  They must always be suspect because, Human Nature being what it is, when you spend time with anyone surrounded by a friendly atmosphere, you develop an affection for that person, you develop a sympathy for he or she, and that colors your actions.  Therefore, that makes you subject to letting your feelings overrule your Right Reason.

This is a life and death struggle we are involved in.  There are only two possible outcomes: we will regain our God-given Freedoms and Liberties or we will be slaves.

We cannot risk ‘sleeping with the enemy’, nor can we trust anyone who does — the stakes are too high.

Goddammit…is there any single elected official we can trust?

He who can flatter a despot, or be flattered by him, without feeling the remonstrances of his own mind against it, may be remarkable for the guise and appearance of sanctity, but he has very little if any true religion — If he habitually allows himself in it, without any remorse, he is a hardened impenitent sinner against GOD and his COUNTRY. Whatever his profession may be, he is not fit to be trusted; and when once discover’d, he will never be trusted by any but fools and children. To complement a great man to the injury of truth and liberty, may be in the opinion of a very degenerate age, the part of a polite and well-bred gentleman — Wise men however will denominate him a Traitor or a Fool. But how much more aggravated must be the folly and madness of those, who instead of worshipping GOD in the solemn assembly, “in spirit and in truth,” can utter a lie TO HIM!! -in order to render themselves acceptable to a man who is a worm or to the son of a man who is a worm.

—Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’, Boston Gazette, 11 November 1771

    Trust no one who seeks public office. Keep them in line by forcing them to follow the law.

    The main reason I liked Sarah Palin from the beginning was her honesty in the face of raging RINO and MSM negatives. I’m not looking for refined; I want a b*tch who’ll take a wreaking ball to DC. I got Rand right off, and he’s way too smooth (i.e. liberal) for me. My biggest problem with Cruz is that he always says just what I want to hear. Which always makes me dubious. May I be candid? The 2016 roster scares the hell out of me.

    Sure, SP…but she WON’T be running for any BIG TICKET POSITION anytime soon.
    REMEMBER: The Perfect is the enemy of The Good.
