Rand Paul is, to put it politely, a bit of a dimwit. So I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised that he's insulting so many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters with his silly rhetoric. Via Raw Story:

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky on Fox Business warned Thursday that the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in New York City could become violent thanks, in part, to President Barack Obama.

“As far as this Occupy Wall Street movement goes, you know I see it sort of like a Paris mob,” he said. “I see the president’s rhetoric of envy inflaming the public.”

Sen. Paul said he “hoped” that the “Parisian mob” that Obama was inflaming didn’t result in “lawlessness” where protesters looted iPhones, “because rich people don’t deserve to have them.”

UPDATE: Here's our Solidarity Occupy Wall Street PayPal pizza fund link. Please keep it coming if nothing else just to piss off Rand Paul.
