If you thought Rush Limbaugh’s ideas about the BP Gulf Coast oil spill were batty, just wait ’til you hear the geiser of crazy flowing out of Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul.

Paul previously made headlines for his controversial criticism of the Civil Rights Act and has found himself back on the chopping block once again.

In short: the politician is angry that President Obama is publicly criticizing BP over the spill because, get this, it’s un-American. On ABC’s Good Morning America, Paul said:

“What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of ‘I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.’ I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I’ve heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it’s part of this sort of blame game society in the sense that it’s always got to be someone’s fault instead of the fact that sometimes accidents happen.”

Although Paul has taken less than $8,000 from the oil and gas industry, BP has major operations in his state. Am I standing under a tree here? ‘Cause it starting to real shady.

Check out Paul in his own words below.
