As if his shameful defense of BP, and comments condoning discrimination by business were not bad enough the Mad Doctor a few years back made some comments that sum him up in a nutshell. Far from the soaring rhetoric of smaller government and politicians that are responsible to the people who elected them Paul gave us a keen insight into his real mindset. You see, just like every other politician in the McConnell machine Rand Paul believes if he were to break the law and get caught he should be above that very law and pardon himself.
For a long time now we have had a problem in Kentucky. While our state has a wide majority of Democrats, we have several Congressional seats that remain Republican, have two Republican Senators, and vote on a national level in Presidential elections Republican. Now it appears as if we will have a leader of our state party who donated to the two worst Republicans of all, disgraced former Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Darth Vader of Kentucky politics, Mitch McConnell. To me, this shows the weakness of our party as a whole. There are too many apologists for the Corporate Republican ideology within our state and national party and the best thing they can do is leave our party, not lead it.
