Grimes dismisses GOP complaints about her Rand Paul 'beaten' joke

Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said Monday that Kentucky Republicans need to get a tougher hide after some of them criticized one of her jokes about U.S. Sen. Rand Paul leading up to Fancy Farm.

Grimes, who is a rumored gubernatorial candidate in 2019, used the Democrats' annual bean supper in Marshall County on Friday night to make a crack about Kentucky's junior senator being assaulted.

"Many folks say that Rand Paul can’t be beat, they’re worried he might be too well-liked," Grimes said. "I don’t buy that. Just ask his neighbor, he can be beaten.”

Grimes was referring to an incident last year when Rene Boucher, a retired doctor and Paul's neighbor in Bowling Green, tackled the senator while he was mowing his lawn because of a dispute over piles of leaves and sticks on the property line.

2. Republicans can dish it out, but they can't take it.

They behave in the most disgraceful manner, scream about locking up Hillary, claim that President Obama was born in Kenya, believe in crazy conspiracy theories, and are anti-American Russia lovers. But if someone ridicules their stupidity or weakness or makes a joke at their expense they turn into crybabies. (No offense to babies.)
