Sarah Palin: Rand Paul Is Learning What It’s Like To Be Me
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin defended Rand Paul on Fox News Sunday, blamed the media for the problems Paul is having, and compared his plight to her own. Poor, poor Sarah.
Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul is feeling what it is like to be Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate said Sunday, comparing the media’s preoccupation with Paul’s recent statements about the 1964 Civil Rights Act to her own treatment in the press.
According to Palin, it’s not Rand’s views that are the problem, it’s the media and personalities with their own agendas.
“One thing that we can learn in this lesson that I have learned and Rand Paul is learning now is don’t assume that you can engage in a hypothetical discussion about constitutional impacts with a reporter or a media personality who has an agenda, who may be prejudiced before they even get into the interview in regards to what your answer may be — and then the opportunity that they seize to get you,” Palin told “Fox News Sunday.”
Paul defended statements he made to the Louisville Journal-Currier on Rachel Maddow’s show and on NPR. One wonders of Palin has a problem with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, given her robust defense of Rand’s comments.
“And I think that more of those who serve in the Senate, and Rand we anticipate will be serving in the Senate, should ask questions about the constitutionality of policies that are proposed. I think more questions should be asked as to the impacts. And Rand isn’t going to be shy about asking the questions,” Palin added.Click here for reuse options!
