From a hilarious article in the Louisville Courier-Journal:
"U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul says he is a "board-certified" ophthalmologist -- even though the national clearinghouse for such certifications says he hasn't been for the past five years.
Rand Paul, who practices in Bowling Green, says he is certified by the National Board of Ophthalmology, a group that he incorporated in 1999 and that he heads.
But that entity is not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which works with the American Medical Association to approve such specialty boards."
He is certified by a group that he incorporated! Just imagine what we would be hearing if it turned out that, say, Obama had only passed a bar exam given by an organization that he created himself- the howling would never stop. But mark my words, this incredible story will go almost unnoticed by the "liberal" press.
