If Rand Paul was looking for an endorsement from a monstrous dragon with a pile of gold not named Sheldon Adelson, he got one last night from Smaug, the evil dragon from The Hobbit and a self-described fiscal conservative.
Coming on The Colbert Report after eating the entire cast of The View, Smaug proved to have a surprising range of conservative views, admitting that America should go back to the gold standard (hence his endorsement of Rand), and supporting Florida’s controversial stand-your-ground law, citing his experience with the thief Bilbo Baggins: “What would you do if someone broke into your house wearing a hoodie?”
“It’s hard for conservatives to get good roles in this town,” Smaug complained. “That’s why Kelsey Grammer and I are always up for the same part.”
