LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — As usual, the mainstream media got it wrong.
They reported just now that Kentucky’s junior senator, Rand Paul, has officially announced that he is running for president.
The media also reported that the ophthalmologist’s father, Ron Paul, attended the event, but kept a low profile.
But your solitary reporter, who goes wherever he is needed, knows better.
The 79-year-old geezer has run for president so often that he can’t remember how many times he has run for the most powerful job in the world.
“After running for president so many times,” Ron Paul explained to the solitary reporter, “I’m entitled to the job.”
Graciously conceding his father’s wisdom, Rand Paul stepped aside.
Ted Cruz and all the other GOP or semi-GOP or quasi-GOP presidential candidates expressed relief.
