Quote of the Day: Rand Paul Edition
"Mr. President, let's set up a new trade. Instead of 5 Taliban, let's trade 5 Democrats!" Sen. Rand Paul, speaking at the Republican Party of Texas Convention. I am not offended by this joke. Judging by the tone Paul was actually feeding red meat to the conservative masses. My question is if Paul became President would he actually round John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, in order to appease his supporters. Could Paul actually look into the eyes of the families of these Democrats and say, "I'm sorry but I have to give these Democrats to the Taliban. This is what the tea party wants me to do." If Paul becomes President his tea party supporters will expect him to trade prominent Democrats to the Taliban and abolish the Civil Rights Act. Paul can't keep making these promises without delivering. Paul is either a political poser or more radical than Joseph McCarthy. Take your pick.
