Dr. Rand Paul Is Not A Real Doctor?

So Dr. Rand Paul might not really be a board certified doctor!? America's favorite Libertarian looks to have made up his own board of ophthalmology and then installed his wife as Vice President of said board, meaning he might not actually be an AMA certified physician. (HA!)

How libertarian of him! Why go to fancy liberal schools and then bother to get the required certification when you can just create it out of thin air like Sarah Palin's new boobs! Like I've said before, Rand Paul is my new favorite. He is so not ready for primetime which only benefits those of us who find entertainment from political malpractice in the national spotlight. So thank you Rand Paul for being you and keep it up! Let's hope his Democratic opponent Jack Conway will reap the benefits of your ineptitude.

Via The Lexington Herald-Leader:
Patients have come to expect that a doctor who holds himself out as a “board certified” specialist, as Paul does, meets rigorous standards created by an independent body?

And, if the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Medical Association, the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure and the American Academy of Ophthalmologists don’t recognize Paul’s National Board of Ophthalmology, exactly what are the standards required for certification by that board?
