Rand Paul is NOT the new leader of the House.
Don’t let the media take control of and manipulate the “optics” on Rand’s recent, gallant efforts.
****Rand Paul is NOT the new leader of the House.****
- because he’s SENATOR Rand Paul!!!!!
The MSM is led wildly back and forth by events, both meaningful (the filibuster) and meaningless (the water bottle), which ironically results in staying the same overall. The real story is, of course, neocons versus Tea Partiers. Plus all the old rivalries, region versus region, religious types versus the less religious, social versus fiscal, interventionist versus less interventionist, free markets versus protectionism, etc.
But they make it into a soap opera of clashing personalities. In the end it boils down to “aren’t they cute, with their little stories, oh well [squish].” No matter who’s on the upswing, we’re all stupid, racist, evil, and incompetent. Rand Paul moreso than McCain, for instance. If Rand ever ran for president it’d be worse than Goldwater in the press. John Q. Americanidol wouldn’t be able to think of him without the word “Hitler” popping into his head. Which isn’t to say McCain got a free ride. If anything, decades of butt kissing bought him attacks on his running mate and the crowds he spoke to being racist and potentially violent instead of him.
