1. “Endorsing Evil Is Politics as Usual

Rand Paul is certainly aware that Mitt Romney is clueless and dangerous on foreign policy, is surrounded by Bush administration neocon advisers, and is likely to promote reckless initiatives overseas that could well prove catastrophic for our nation. While I understand perfectly Rand’s desire to remain viable and reform from within, his endorsement of what Mitt represents is ultimately more about himself and his own ambition to become president in 2016 than it is about protecting the interests of the American people, who will bear the consequences of the next four years. Rand’s father understood the difference between right and wrong, even when it meant that he would be vilified and ostracized. Rand could easily have come to a realization that to endorse what he knows to be wrong is a deal with the devil. He could have just kept his mouth shut and soldiered on as a Republican and many of us would have stood beside him through thick and thin. Now instead we will hear a lot of gnashing of teeth and wailing explaining how it all was a good move “politically.” Bollocks. Listening to the Rand claque’s “understanding” of this sellout, I can’t help but remember the Bobby Burns poem “Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation” in which the great poet and Scottish patriot denounced the traitorous aristocrats who sold out his country’s independence to England. “Such a parcel of rogues in a nation” indeed.”

2. And the US is funding and supporting these assholes. Nice:

“Syria. Exodus of Christians. Ultimatum from military chief of armed opposition”
