And The Winner Of The CPAC Straw Poll IS–Rand Paul

As has been the case the last three years, Senator Rand Paul won CPAC’s straw poll in 2015. His base (which comes from his retired father, Rep. Ron Paul) always comes out in strong support for their libertarian ideals. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul won the presidential straw poll at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference […]

CPAC, though, does not have a history of predicting presidents. “President Paul! President Paul! President Paul!” the attendees chanted in the middle of Paul’s speech after he declared America needs “a new president.” The speech from the longtime CPAC favorite and 2016 presidential contender offered bold specifics on domestic policy and foreign policy. He promised […]

If Rand Paul starts gaining traction, Sheldon Adelson, one of the right’s biggest donors, wants to stop him. Mr. Paul has aggressively sought out Republican Jewish Coalition donors and dropped by one of their events at a Washington steakhouse this year that Mr. Adelson attended. His team has even sought to flatter the neoconservative Washington […]

Rand Paul believes in sticking to the issues. It’s about time at least one Republican candidate sounded rational. And, while Paul had nothing in particular to say about Giuliani, he did say, “I think it’s a mistake to question people’s motives. It’s one thing to disagree on policy.” Paul said he’s not interested in questioning […]

It behooves us once again to see what is the state of Schrödinger’s favorite candidate for 2016, Senator Rand Paul. Open the Box! It was only last week that the Washington Post Fact Checker gave him three of the much-coveted Pinocchios for his twice-stated misstatement that he has a biology degree awarded from Baylor University. His office tried to […]

Paul never completed undergraduate work but was, nevertheless, accepted at Duke to study medicine. His staff says that, in effect, is a biology degree. Paul also said he has an English degree, however, which is not covered in Medical school. “In the jocular bantering with the host, Dr. Rand Paul mentioned ‘degree,’ but anyone who […]

Wait, Hillary Clinton started the war in Libya?  According to The Hill: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Wednesday accused former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of helping to spur unrest in the Middle East that led to the current battle against militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. “One of the people I […]

Bonus points for tenacity to Christian conservatives like Mike Huckabee who keep on effing that chicken. In the face of nationwide bipartisan support for marriage equality, the evangelical far-right can’t let go of their outdated sense of morality, nor will they abandon their repeatedly debunked excuses for why it’s acceptable to publicly gay-bash with impunity. […]

There’s A Shot For That

Schroedinger’s Candidate Senator Rand Paul continues to hold all sides of many positions. Is he for vaccinations or against them: let’s open the box to see what his position is today. On Monday, February 2, 2015 (Groundhog Day) he said: “I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up […]

Senator Rand Paul opposes Loretta Lynch for attorney general and vows, “she’s going down.” Wednesday, in his office in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, Breitbart News watched as the senator’s legal and press team briefed him final time before the interview. Sergio Gor, Paul’s communications director, his press secretary Eleanor May and […]
