Rand Paul refuses to shake hands with opponent Conway after debate (bad reporting)
McClatchy ^ | Jack Brammer

LOUISVILLE — A debate filled with unabashed personal attacks concluded Sunday night with Republican Rand Paul briskly brushing past Democrat Jack Conway, refusing to shake the hand of an opponent who raised questions about his religious beliefs.

Have the Dems reached a new low?

"Conway TV ad....says that while in college at Baylor University, Paul was in a secret brotherhood that mocked Christianity."

--

At Baylor?? I seriously doubt it.

With Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reod, Chuck Schumer and Charlie Rangel on their side, I wouldn't have thought it possible... ...but there you go.

I watched the entire debate last night, I was waiting for someone to finally post about it.

Conway questions if Rand is a Christian basically, and it`s so ironic because Conway supports infanticide! You want to be disqualified from Christianity all you have to do is vote Democrat as Conway does.

I believe this from the depths of my heart! When you vote Democrat in any way shape or form, you spit on Christ! When you vote Democrat in any way shape or form, you are saying you support infanticide, taking prayer,the Bible and the very name of Christ/God out of the public square,classroom etc.

Really it means you support all the beliefs of the Judges appointed by Clinton,Obama etc. It even means that you are OK with a Cross in a glass of urine etc etc etc. It basically means voting Democrat, the very Spirit of Christ is not in you.

So Mr Conway you are the one that is not a Christian,you are the one that supports infanticide and teaching children that they might be homosexual etc. We know that because you are a Democrat, and the Democrat platform agrees.

He was. But it was one of those sophomoric college things and not necessarily a reflection on Rand Paul or his beliefs. These kinds of things pop up on every religiously-oriented school, and is a check against Jansenism (in Catholic colleges) or raw Puritanism (in biblically oriented Protestant colleges). Without context, it is as bad as Grayson's ad.

Desparation time for Conway. We have had two Rand Paul signs stolen in the last week. Funny how Democrat signs never disappear mysteriously, isn’t it?

Sad but true!

Mr. Conway seems awfully concerned about Mr. Paul’s behavior in college.

Yet he does not have that same concern regarding the president, about whose ‘college history’ we know next to NOTHING, apart from what the man himself wrote in his own self-serving “autobiographies” (and THAT’s bad enough).

Of course, where [Enter Name of democrat politician] is concerned: “that all happend a LONG time ago— and in any case, such youthful indiscretions cannot be used to gauge [Enter Name of democrat politician]’s fitness for office”.

Whereas in the case of [Enter name of republican politician]: “such behavior, however long ago it may have occurred, provides crucial insight in to both [his/her] morals and [his/her] fitness for office.”

He was right to not shake Conway’s hand since he did not know where it had been.

The Democrat Party cant get any lower. They are lower than whale dung which is on the ocean floor.Every organization that provides for them is just as low. I watched 2 NOW representatives agree with Jerry Brown on calling his opponent a whore. NOW in my opinion themselves are nothing but political prostitutes who like the Rev. Sharpton and Jackson make a living stirring controversy. The Democrat Party is worse than Muslim Terrorist and those that belong to it should be treated as such.

I went to Baylor. I’m curious about this “secret brotherhood.” The Noze Brothers, perhaps?? If so, more power to Rand! Love the Noze Bros!! :)

The dems are reeeeeally reaching here.

Conway said the ad raises legitimate questions about Paul's values and repeatedly challenged Paul to answer two questions: Why did he join a college society, the NoZe Brotherhood, that mocked Christianity, and when is it appropriate to tie up a woman and make her bow down to "Aqua Buddha"?

You are right, an extreme stretch by Dems

Didn’t they have a WWII half-track they used in parades at one time?

Desparation time for Conway.
Not only is it desparation time, more importantly, I think it is desperation time.

The anti-war signs dissapeared really quickly after Nobama was elected.

Democrat signs disappear in my neighborhood if not in yours.

There's a reason for that.

Good for him.......the Pub’s ought to remember how the Demonrats demonize them on a daily basis when they think of
“reaching out across the aisle” should they regain the majority. Rand Paul has my deepest respect.

Yeah, and they're still digging furiously.

Dick Morris says that the Dems are spending a lot on private investigators to dig up past peccadilloes of the Republican candidates.

Too little, too late for Jack Conway. He’s now trying to run to Paul’s right, which might have worked on some issues if he had started that strategy from the beginning, but now it is too late, and he is now connected to Obama and all of the national issues which will allow them to be entered into the state races next year if he runs for re-election as Attorney General, as he refused to join the lawsuit against the health care bill.

The only propaganda for democrats that disappears is the propaganda they don’t want anyone having a closer look at like the one who made allegations against Rand Paul.

Anyone can make Allegations but if you want anyone to take you seriously you need to either provide evidence to provide some basis behind your creditability. (IE your identity.)

On Hannity now, Rand Paul is discussing this. I think Conway must be a long lost relative of Alan Grayson

Paul should have asked Conway if he still prayed to trees and practiced ritualistic human sacrifice. Druids were very into such things and this is as believable as his nonsensical claims.

Was wondering why I couldn’t get the straight dope on what exactly Conway was alleging.

From Wiki (apply grain of salt):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_NoZe_Brotherhood

The NoZe Brothers:

Some include:

* Bob Bullock — Former Lt. Governor of Texas
* George W. Bush — 43rd President of the United States[6]
* Bennet Cerf — “Bro. Board NoZe”; Noted Humorist [7]
* Bill Cosby — “Bro. J-E-L-L-NoZe”; comedian [8]
* John Dean — “Bro. Dean of Dirty Tricks”; White House council to Richard Nixon [9]
* Kinky Friedman — “Bro. The Yellow NoZe of Texas”; Texas Gubernatorial Candidate/ Humorist [10]
* Hayden Fry — “Bro. Crotch Grabber”; college football coach [11]
* John Glenn — “Bro. GemiNoZe”; first American to orbit the Earth, former senator [12]
* Billy Graham — “Bro. Cracker NoZe Graham”; evangelist [13]
* Bob Hope — “Bro. SkiNoZe Hope”; comedian [3]
* Leon Jaworski — “Bro. Water NoZe Jaworski”; Special Prosecutor during the Watergate Scandal [14]

* Kenneth Starr — “Bro. Non Hostis HumaNoZe Generis”; Independent Counsel whose investigation led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment [19], current Baylor President


note- Some of the “members” appear to have some stature. Looks like they originaly were formed to poke fun at Baptists. There are times that I have harassed the Southern Baptist Convention myself, and I am one.
