Is Rude-Paul A Trans-Libertarian?
I guess we'll have to see what, if any change takes place. Candidates bleed for this kind of exposure. But it's probably a good call. Hopefully he'll be attending candidate class 101. The Senate is not a House seat, which gives the media some cover for making a big deal out of all this. Yes, I realize the media and the Left are out to get him. So, I'm not ignoring that. But it was to be expected.
What surprises me is some head shaking by others at Maddow and company changing their stripes so quickly. What did people expect? They did the same thing to (cough cough) arch conservative John McCain. The Left was cheering for Paul to win the primary all along.
The danger is, this may set up something of a re-match. But will he go back after some time off? Frankly, the media that matters most for him is in Kentucky. So, I'm not sure he has to, actually. Unfortunately, round one goes to the Left. We should have been talking fin reg and Obama incompetence in the Gulf. But then, Brown, Snowe and Collins took the air out of the fin reg balloon anyway. So, what the heck. In any event, Paul finds himself in a strange place for a Senate candidate – how can I not make headlines for a few days?
After a series of interviews on national TV that stirred an uproar over his views on civil rights and other issues, Rand Paul, the Republican nominee for Senate in Kentucky, has canceled a scheduled appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program on Sunday.
Ms. Fischer confirmed the rarity of a cancellation to the highly watched show. Throughout its history, she said, only two guests have canceled: Louis Farrakhan and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia.
