Why the Left 'Sucks' at Trolling
Alan Grayson trash-talks as well as a tea-party Republican. But his progressive colleagues would rather take a high road (and sit on the sideline).
Rep. Alan Grayson has been getting nasty emails lately. He's been called a "Jew-boy" and also a "German Nazi." One person said he was "lower than whale dung" while another writer went with "lower than snail scum." And of course he was told to burn in hell.
He's not altogether surprised. He knows this is what happens when you head-butt a hornets' nest, as he did earlier this month by sending out an email equating the tea party to the Ku Klux Klan. The email—complete with a donate button at the bottom—included a picture of a burning cross as the "t" in "tea party."
This isn't Grayson's first brush with controversy. He's a guy who once labeled his opponent Rep. Dan Webster "Taliban Dan," and recently took to the House floor to remind everyone that Congress was less popular than dog poop.

I bet that just made you shiver with delight huh? hahaha Not that he lied about the KKK comment you found ONE and could try all day and never come up with more racist, bigoted, foul comments than the teabagger CONS. I have posted them for months. Every day one of your idiots tops the idiot from the day before. Keep trying though. You will never find as many as we could on your teabagger CONS. YOUR freaks got the top spot for making disgusting comments across the country. If the left sucks at trolling it is because you repukes and your minions rule in trolling. YOU loser lemmings here are a testament to that. SUCKER

NOONE follows you but your arisock puppet and the chemtrail zombie. Plus a loser or two you bring from those sites to stroke your misguided ego witch. I don't post on any other site, and when I did that one time you were reposting my comments from here I used my same name. If I choose to post again, I will do the same. Just like Newport does when he posts there. We don't have to play your little sock puppet games. I like to stop in there when I am bored and no one is here to see how many socks you and your buddies use over there and to see Rose and NTR, among others slams your ass for the nutcase you are over there. So don't flatter yourself. YOU are a joke we just laugh at and it is funny your support and proxies aren't numerous enough over there to help you change your icons, they are always there describing you to a "t"...flaming nut, clueless, spam. hahaha You can call me nutter jr all you want, she rips you a new one every chance she gets and if I ever post there again I will use the same name. I see you listed on the birther crap thread as well as many others when you are trolling. Talk about not having a life. So busy trying to find other people's comments to post as usual. Not an original SANE thought in your pointy head.

Rand Paul is a Ophthalmologist that couldn't get certified, so he certified himself.
He is a person who thinks he is above playing by the rules. He thinks plagiarism is just a technical error and people who call him out for it are just being mean.
Joe Biden did it once and it cost him his candidacy for President.
Rand Paul has done it dozens of times in both his speeches and his books. Even his hometown paper has called him out and the Washington Times has dropped him as a columnist.
I read all that and had to laugh. Crying like a little girl,....if you don't like me I can go away and be a doctor again and be perfectly content (while he cheat medicare/Medicaid like before)

Rand Paul has another problem

In the spring of 2010 stories first swirled around Sen. Rand Paul’s certification as an
ophthalmologist by an outfit called the “National Ophthalmology Board,” an entity he founded. This week I discovered that while he continues to present himself as “board certified” the NOB has been out of business since 2011, and in any event, does not under Kentucky law permit him to advertise as “board certified.”

In 2010 Rand Paul explained that he formed the board in 1997 along with 200 young ophthalmologists to protest a decision by the American Board of Ophthalmologists to grandfather those who were certified by 1992, but to limit certification for a ten year period for those first certified after that date. Rand Paul fell within the latter group. He found that decision “discriminatory” and unfair so he set up the NOB along with his wife and father-in-law to certify himself. Despite calling itself “national,” it appears to have operated purely in Kentucky. The board remained in operation until 2000, when it was dissolved. It was reinstated in 2005. Since the certification story broke, the NOB again dissolved in 2011.
However, it is not clear how that entity would have comported within Kentucky law. Michael S. Rodman, executive director of the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure tells Right Turn,“The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure does not license physicians based on their specialty board certification nor is it a requirement for licensure.” However, he explained that “Board does address specialty board certification through our regulation on physician advertising.” Rodman confirmed that if a board is not on the list, then a Kentucky specialist is prohibited from advertising himself as board certified. That list does not include the National Ophthalmology Board.
A physician in Kentucky and elsewhere can still practice without certification, but since the 1990&#8242;s the certification has become increasingly important in the medical field. Beth Ann Comber of the American Board of Ophthalmology tells me,“Board certification, and especially MOC [Maintenance of Certification] participation, by an ABMS-recognized board helps patients make more informed choices regarding their medical care.

Today, the internet connects patients with a wealth of physician information, but it’s often difficult for patients to determine where the information on those sites comes from, how the ratings are determined, and where paid advertising stops and unbiased information begins....Certification is voluntary, so physicians who make the choice to participate in continuous learning and quality improvement activities are doing so out of a personal commitment to high standards for their patients and their practice.” Moreover,“there are many hospitals, private practice groups, insurers, etc. that require board certification for staff privileges or leadership positions. Some medical specialty societies also require board certification for membership or offer a special class of membership for board certified physicians.”

Rand Paul continues to perform eye “surgery in his home state, often getting favorable media attention for performing free eye procedures. His profile on the website of the Tri-Star Greenview Regional Hospital, where Paul has privileges, includes the notation “Specialty Board Certifications: Ophathalmology.” Likewise on the Healthgrades Web site where patients can locate physicians his entry reads:“Ophthalmology, Board Certified.”

Since 2005 Rand Paul has not been certified by any board recognized by the state of Kentucky, and since 2011 has had no certification since the NOB was dissolved. I asked Rand Paul’s staff a series of questions, trying to determine why he still held himself out as a “certified” ophthalmologist:
Did the National Board of Ophthalmology have examinations and/or continuing education requirements? If so, what were they?

CONtinued:

How many doctors claimed certification through the NBO? Did they continue to do so or did they obtain American Board of Ophthalmology certification?
When it dissolved, did Dr. Rand stop presenting himself as “board certified”?

The Kentucky Board of Licensure’s list of approved accreditation boards does not appear to include the NBO so why did Dr. Rand believe he had the right under Kentucky law to advertise as board certified? Did he receive an exemption or opinion of some sort from the state licensure board?
Is he continuing to hold himself out as “board certified”?

Has he taken any continuing education since he was originally certified? Since 1997?

I got back a nonresponsive answer that recited his medical school and residency record. As to the certification issue, a Rand Paul spokeswoman would only say:

In 1997, Dr. Paul led a nationwide protest against the American Board of Ophthalmology’s decision to require recertification for younger ophthalmologists, but not for older ophthalmologists. Over 200 young ophthalmologists co-signed a letter with Dr. Paul to protest the policy. When ABO refused to extend their recertification policy to all ophthalmologists, the group formed a competing board certification group called the National Board of Ophthalmology. The group administered its own certification exam for about a decade, but is no longer active.

NBO is a nonprofit corporation and all who took part were volunteers without salary. Dr. Paul has not profited in any way from this group.

The decade-long battle against a policy that the ABO did not make binding on all members is just another example of Dr. Paul’s willingness to fight against any law or rule that doesn’t include equal protection for everyone.

In refusing to answer the direct questions Rand Paul will prompt further inquiry as to whether he skated around Kentucky law, received appropriate continuing education and represented himself forthrightly to his patients, paid or otherwise.

It is noteworthy that he says 200 people signed the letter; he does not confirm that any of them relied on the NBO certification.

Rand Paul is already under fire for plagiarism charges, and has reacted angrily to that story.

(“It annoys the hell out of me. I feel like if I could just go to detention after school for a couple days, then everything would be okay. But do I have to be in detention for the rest of my career?”) His reaction doesn’t bode well for presidential campaign-level scrutiny. At one point he told the New York Times,“To tell you the truth, people can think what they want, I can go back to being a doctor anytime, if they’re tired of me. I’ll go back to being a doctor, and I’ll be perfectly content.” If he does, he would be smart to get certified by the American Board of Ophthalmologists to be fully compliant with state law and give patients the reassurance he’s current on the latest developments in his field.

So long as he is a U.S. senator with presidential aspirations, however, he will need to respond calmly and honestly with controversies about his own actions and record. By providing so little information he guarantees continued scrutiny.

Mitch McConnell draws a line in the sand for the Tea Party

Up until now, the war between the Tea Party and the “establishment GOP”(however you define that) has been kind of one sided. Responses from the old guard have tended to run along the lines of,“we’re all fighting for the same goals, we just don’t agree on the tactics” or, more simply,“can’t we all just get along?” But this week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell sat down with Peggy Noonan for a WSJ interview which is bound to have some tongues wagging. In it, he’s essentially taken off the gloves, and said what most of the media mavens have been repeating for months now.

But says he isn’t worried about his own race:“I don’t wanna be overly cocky, but I’m gonna be the Republican nominee next year.”

This is about as close to an open declaration of war that McConnell has come. It would seem that the time for “let’s all go along to get along” is over, and the GOP is ready to air all the dirty laundry in public. But here’s one interesting thing for you to consider this morning. You’ll notice that Mitch didn’t say,“I’m gonna be the Senate Minority Leader after the next election” or,“I’m going to be serving in this seat for another six years.” He just said he was going to be the nominee. That sounds like his focus has shifted to the very real battle he faces on his own Right flank, rather than pretending that the Tea Party challenge is little more than the buzzing of flies and he’s focusing on his Democratic challenger.

I’m not sure how much else he can (or needs to) do at this point. McConnell has secured the early endorsements of as many big hitting Tea Party folks as he could find out of the gate, starting with Rand Paul. He’s raised money in piles he hasn’t needed in a very long time and attempted to define his opponent long before he got enough cash and clout to define himself. In short, McConnell has followed every rule in the standard election playbook to set himself up for a win, and all he can do now is hope that the voters follow predictable patterns.

But is Mitch somehow “giving permission” for everyone else in the country – from Graham to Enzi – to start putting up wanted posters of Tea Party upstarts with targets on their faces? If so, Reagan’s 11th commandment is well and truly out the window for both sides, and the primary is going to be a far more bloody affair than I’d been predicting as recently as this summer.
