i just didn't know HOW 'out there' he was. (oh, by saying out there in the title of this post, all i meant was i knew he existed).
i didn't know about his belief canada, mexico and the united states is being turned into one country. i didn't know (and don't want to know) lots about him
i just don't want him elected to ANY position. how could ANYONE pull the lever for him after hearing what he actually believes (i'm not even going to get into his feelings about race and civil rights)
he's not even conservative. he's off the grid.
eugene robinson has a great column in today's wapo:
Rand Paul's Libertarian La-La Land
By Eugene Robinson
Not so fast, everybody. Rand Paul can't abruptly disavow the extremist views on civil rights that he's been espousing for years and expect us all to just move along. Was he lying then? Is he lying now? Or has the Tea Party movement's newly crowned Mad Hatter changed his mind? Republican crisis managers wisely didn't allow Paul to stray within range of the Sunday talk shows, but they can't keep him hidden away in some Kentucky cave until November. Sooner or later, the Senate candidate is going to have to answer a direct question: Was he being untruthful on the occasions when he said the federal government has no authority to outlaw racial discrimination in private businesses such as restaurants? Or is he being untruthful now in claiming he would have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964?..............
