View Full Version : Maybe the most backhanded compliment Rand has ever gotten...from Huff Po

decries the horrors of corporatocracy in both Dem and GOP parties, says the blowout election was because Obama failed the left (ignores in its vote counts that the last time Senators up this year ran it was a presidential election, but, hey)

Then says: "President Obama will now no doubt fold his flimsy tent, before the ink dries on this year's final election results, and indulge the new Republican House majority in whatever it demands. Democrats in the Senate will not even think to use the procedural obstructions the Republicans employed with such great success for the last two years. Although the GOP controls only one house of Congress, it dominantly rules the American government.

As it took the most unlikely Richard Nixon to open the way to China, perhaps the only hope remaining for the salvation of representative government in Washington - which is to say the obstructionism of the One Party agenda - lies in the hands of a questionably unstable new Senator from Kentucky. It's just possible that only Rand Paul, despite his many egregious faults, stands guard as lone sentinel over our democracy. Like David, with only a slingshot against Goliath, Rand Paul has nothing at his command save the ancient yet powerful Rules of the Senate. Could the solitary Senator Paul, like Jimmy Stewart's Mr. Smith, call a corrupt system to account?"

Despite their best efforts--including an entire page devoted to Rand Paul (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/rand-paul)--Ariannia Huffington and the leading JournOlister in her employment, Sam Stein, got teabagged by Rand Paul.

they are saying Rand may be the only one to save representative government. They are also flinging insults with a shovel, but don't ignore the point of the article, which is that they are looking to Rand in hopes of salvation.
