Rand Paul, the Libeartarian.
This adorable bear cub comes attached to Ron Paul Bear, and you cannot decouple them. Unlike the Ron Paul Bear, it comes with a tiny hawk perched on its shoulder to help it discuss foreign policy. Filibuster string also available. Ayn Rand aficionados can accessorize with a tiny train set, but that is on them and it is not officially licensed.

Ayn Rand: I value your company, Valentine, but not excessively, and will revise that assessment should it prove expedient to do so.

To me, this is the perfect Valentine’s Day movie. It sounds awful and uncomfortable, and that is Valentine’s Day in a nutshell. (Here is probably a good time to confess that I started the book, in tandem with “Atlas Shrugged,” but I could not get through either of them and developed confused sexual feelings about trains with which I am still grappling.)

Rand Paul   Satire   Neutral  

Sen. Rand Paul’s office is decorated to look exactly like Orlando’s from “The Wire.” Several frantic staffers rush in with big Ayn Rand posters to distract you, but you spend the rest of your life wondering what you saw.

The question is not who is going to let me, it is who is going to stop me, says train, echoing Ayn Rand. Pure Randian indoctrination about using the force of your will to move trains. (“The Little Engine That Could”)

…imagine getting an angry tweet from Ayn Rand on account of having put down “Atlas Shrugged,” walked away and kept walking forever until you felt clean inside. (I’m sorry, Ayn! Don’t hurt me! I’m going to come back to it, I promise.)
