no robocoppers allowed

Rand Paul has cackled in the news over his 'brilliant' false equivalency: if the Federal government is determined to limit businessess' right to deny service to folks on the basis of gender, race, etc., then no business can bar access to a customer carrying a weapon, either.

Apart from being a bizarrely broad reading of the Second Amendment (as tea partiers are wont to do), Paul's willfully overlooking the fact that we aren't born with guns growing out of our skin.

Which is why I'd love to see a skit where a reporter's covering the story about how Robocop has been denied access to a restaurant, and thanks to the courageous sit-ins of tea partiers he's allowed to eat there once again -- but the reporter, who's Black, is forced to interview him from outside, through the restaurant's front window.
