Rand Paul is a horrible person. Before becoming a Senator this guy was pro-choice, anti-Israel, pro-legalization, and held a variety of positions anathema to Republican politics. But in order to get elected he put those in his back pocket. “You can’t get elected as a Republican in Kentucky if you say those things out loud.”
““I want Democrats to raise their hands if they have ever given a speech that says ‘take back,’ ‘fight for your country,’ who hasn’t used the words fight figuratively?””
Uh huh. Ted Cruz is a blithering clown when it comes to using this crap to further his political aims. Rand Paul, though, is dangerous because he’s smarter than Ted and knows how to play the game much, much better. He knows his audience, and is much more tactical about forcing his colleagues to go on the record.
““Democrats claim to want unify the country but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity,” Paul wrote referring to President Biden’s consistent calls to bring the country together.”
ETA: The Senate voted down Paul’s resolution, but not enough Republicans joined in to ensure a conviction for impeachment. Because, of course.
