Paul Rodriguez -- Et Tu, Carne Asada?

10/5/2009 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like real Mexicans aren't even immune to some old fashioned belly-busting Mexican food.

We're told Paul Rodriguez -- the famous Mexican-born comedian -- went out to a Mexican restaurant in Washington the night before he got really sick and had to go to the hospital for 4 days. Now he's thinking the whole thing was a bad case of food poisoning.

While doctors haven't been able to confirm this, we spoke to Paul's friend who said the comedian ordered the "Carne Asada Plate" -- and he spent the rest of the night in the bathroom ... before eventually calling an ambulance.

Paul stayed at the hospital Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night ... then checked out yesterday.

Just goes to show -- Mexican restaurants are all fun and games until someone is rushed to the ICU.

It probably was food poisoning. I got it a couple years ago from chicken, within an hour of eating it I was so sick. Took like 4 days to feel better again.

Has everyone lost their minds? This is a clear case of withdrawls from drugs or alcohol. He ran out of pain pill or decided to stop taking. Everyone thinks they have food poisoning when they dont want to admit they are going through withdrawls or they may not know they are going through withdrawls.

Feds Under Suspicion    

If Paul was infected by E. Coli or Salmonella from a Mexican meal, it would have been detectable through medical testing. It wasn't. Paul is more than likely being tailed by a Fed Hit team that put poison in his food that took him down. Eating in Washington, DC, the snake pit of corruption and Bankster Capital of the world can be hazardous to your health if you are representing the interests of actual people and not crooked banksters intent on stealing your land. Paul should NOT eat out in DC where CIA spooks can infiltrate any kitchen or dining room with poison they can dump into your meal. Remember the weaponized anthrax sent to the Congressional offices after 9-11 was developed in US labs. Paul, watch you're ass. Government spooks controlled by the treasury dept are part of hit teams that take out those that represent the people that have the audacity to defy the greedy dictates of the foreign bankers that now control the country.
