Since last Tuesday, its been morning after week for Kentucky Senate Republican candidate Rand Paul. While he recorded interviews at NPR and The OReilly Factor today, he didnt waste any time booking himself for the toughest interview he could find. Tonight, that interview was on The Rachel Maddow Show. Dont be deceived by the lack of shouting this was by far the most heated exchange of the night across cable news.
It wasnt the first time Paul was on the program in fact, he had announced his candidate for Kentucky Senate on The Rachel Maddow Show months before. But last nights interview was almost like a science experiment: put two of the most ideologically pure people in the politi-media world together to challenge each other on one of the issues they each care about the most. For Paul, that issue is the rights of the individual and the danger of the federal government stepping over them. For Rachel Maddow, the issue is institutional discrimination and the moral obligation to abolish it. That, at least, is how each one of them saw the respective problems and successes of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which Paul had been coming under attack for allegedly opposing.

No doubt the smug, insignificant Maddow believes she has a ‘Glenn Beck-Van Jones’ moment here.
Anyone who favors affirmative action would also oppose the Civil Rights bill, that is, if they were being honest.
Proof that MSM is scared.
Democrats and their MSM supporters
- Know them by their sheets and love
for slavery and slavers, terrorists, murders, bombers, and antisemitism.
It could spell real trouble if she convinces her audience to not vote for a conservative.
How does a ‘woman’ look at herself in the mirror and see that haircut and think “Oh that’s attractive”
Look how old Robert Byrd is in that photo- If he gave up the Klan it must have been when he was already pretty old- and how long has he been in the senate?
I smell fish squared.
I hope this teaches conservative candidates a lesson. Stay off MSNBC and don't give interviews to the New York Times or Washington Post. Otherwise you get what you deserve.
I suspect most of us would have opposed the civil eights act if we had seen where it would lead. The constitution and free market work just fine if they’re allowed to.
The media is just using this crap as a distraction to pretend Richard Blumenthal doesn’t exist.
I couldn’t agree with you more. There was absolutely nothing to be gained by Paul going on the Rachel Maddow show, especially to throw away momentum the day after his primary win. Her show is very far left; the audience demographic will be almost uniformly hostile and he should never have answered her hypothetical about settled law that has been in effect for 46 years. I have no idea who his schedulers are; they must be the same idiots that put Sarah Palin on with Couric and Schieffer, neither of which have the slightest interest in being objective. At least Maddow is an open and transparent left winger.
Personally I’m sick of conservatives who call democrats cowards for refusing to go on FOX and then turn around and call republicans stupid for going on any of the other networks.
Its hypocritical and pathetic.
Ignoring them won’t help either. They may follow you around, hear you use a nonsense word - like, um, macaca and then they’ll concoct a pejorative usage of that word and ascribe it to you.
After looking at that pic. of Rosie I’m going to go blow my groceries!
there will be a lot more of this...the do damage presidency requires it.
I suspect that you are incorrect. I'm all about individual rights and property rights, etc. However, in this instance, the subject is larger than a debate such as allowing or not allowing smoking in one’s restaurant. Refusing blacks the right to sit at a lunch counter because it's private property had to be addressed. What I am wondering is how is it that when conservatives catch a tail wind and have an opportunity to make some gains they instinctively blow their feet clean off. To put it more simply, why did Rand Paul feel the necessity to be stupid?
Since Congress has no authority to legislate for the States, I can't say I blame him.
We either have a right to our property, or we don't. There is no 'middle ground'.
"When all government, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the Center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
Thomas Jefferson to Charles Hammond, 1821
You really believe there would be whites only resturants all across America if nanny hadn’t put a stop to it?
Well than Ms. Maddow has a bit of a problem, since her colleague Chris Matthews appears to stick up for Dr. Paul. Here’s the video:
Barry Goldwater opposed it as well as.
I think you're forgetting something. Fox actually has a spectrum of viewers, while MSNBC's audience of TWO are nothing but rabid socialist America-haters.
No. But, I do believe that whites only restaurants would have prevailed much longer than it did. Btw, just a side note, I am old enough to remember going into Sears and Montgomery Wards and observing water fountains labeled White and Colored, segregated cafes and movie theaters. Oh yeah, I also remember the big sign across main street Greenville, Texas stating “the blackest land and the whitest people”. So, this gross inequity needed to be addressed sooner than later for sure.
Which ones Maddow?
Of course, the Marxists are trying to manufacture some outrage here, but I don't see voters swayed with this leftist tack and demagoguery.
Both of them?
How come in movies we get lesbians like Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct yet in real life we get Rosie O and Maddow?
My God, Dead, that is alot of ugly so early in the morning.
I watched the entire ~20 minute exchange, and I thought Dr. Paul did quite well. If I was him, I think I’d have been a little more direct on specific examples, but it was not a bad showing.
Jay-sus-F-ing-Kee-rist! That ain’t right, making a guy look at that mega cottage cheese ass in spandex this early in the morning (or any other time of day, for that matter).
That one activity alone should make conservatives pause and consider his judgement, possibly his sanity. Some people have such large egos that they think they can actually fly.
Politicians are an entirely different species.
Mr. Paul should explain the differences between Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the bill and and Al Gore Sr.’s opposition to the bill.
The woman...er whatever, is a complete idiot!
Economics has a way of punishing racial discrimination.
Read some Sowell.
On the other hand, leaving race out of the question, do you believe someone’s right to eat in any restaurant they choose trumps the restaurant’s owner’s right to free association?
Can you say 'Photoshop'?
Their goal is to paint Rand Paul as part of the loony fringe. And if he keeps straying into hard core Libertarian theories then they'll succeed. If Paul just sticks with the issues that got him the nomination - smaller government, out of control spending, reigning in entitlements - then he'll be Senator Paul come January. If he gets off into 'pull out of Afghanistan now' and 'the Civil Rights Act hurts business' then he's giving his opponents the ammunition they need to possible win the seat.
MadCow is just going for publicity, trying to scrape up an audience...which she clearly lacks.
So if she is willing to “go back” 46 years to question Rand Paul maybe she can have Sen. Robert Byrd on and “go back” 64 years and ask him about any organizations to which he belonged.
Just go on and expose the Brainwashed mind manipulators! They would never have a person like that on again.
“On the other hand, leaving race out of the question, do you believe someones right to eat in any restaurant they choose trumps the restaurants owners right to free association?”
Liberal’s do! To them, forced “diversity” is more important than individual rights - every single time.
Here is my issue with all this “diversity” crap: by letting groups of people cling to their “diversity” by using the claims of their ....(heritage, color, creed, origin, plight, etc...) they are effectively DISASSEMBLING our MELT POT! They are saying that each of these groups get to keep their own characteristics, but everyone else - NO, the Anglo-Americans - have to take on and learn the traits and characteristics of everyone else!
As Roosevelt said in 1907 - come here, but become Americans! Any half-allegiance to somewhere else is NO allegiance to America! We have ONE flag - American! We have ONE language - English! Either get behind those, or go somewhere else!
In this day and age, the liberals want the freaking water (AND THE METAL POT) to take on the flavors of all the meat and vegetables of this American stew, but allow each one of the ingredients to keep ALL of their own taste, flavor, characteristics, etc... All I can say is that this kind of stew tastes like SH!T!!!!
“Both of them?”
Well, you know the saying amongst liberals, “...you tell two friends, and I’ll two friends and they’ll tell two friends, and...”
Well, now that I think about it, that’s about as a big a circle of friends most of the liberals that watch this show have, so you are right. Never mind!
Forced “diversity” and multiculturalism have but one aim -
destroying the culture and traditions that this country was founded on.
Maddow, a recipient of the acclaimed Lesbian of the Year Award, Digs In On Charges Rand Paul Would Have Opposed Civil Rights Act
According to wiki, Maddow first met her lesbian partner when she applied for a job to do her yard work...giving a whole new meaning to “Splendor in the Grass.”
