Paul Family Dynasty Ends Before It Began?

• dailybell.com
Rand Paul (left) has declared, from the start, that he's the "tea party" candidate, and yet [Bill] Kristol's Weekly Standard has been viscerally hostile to the tea partiers from the very beginning, because anti-populism is a key plank in the neoconservative platform, unless – of course – it's anti-Muslim populism. The very phrase "big government conservatism," which the tea partiers justifiably detest, was invented by the Weekly Standard, along with the fiscally imprudent variety of "national greatness conservatism" Kristol and Co. have been peddling for years. Why, if he's riding the wave of tea party activism, is Rand forging an alliance with their worst enemies? He's way ahead in the polls. He doesn't need Bill Kristol and the Weekly Standard, he doesn't need the neocons – who aren't known to exist in any great numbers in Kentucky – and he doesn't need AIPAC either. In short, there was no good reason for him to run after and appease his father's nemeses. So why did he do it? You can ask him, but I'll save you the trouble. Rand Paul has no principles: he'll do or say anything to get into that Senate seat – yes, even give up his faith in Aqua Buddha. Or his loyalty to whatever values he once pretended to hold. He'd even betray his own father – and, indeed, he has done precisely that, giving Kristol's gremlin-bloggers a choice opportunity to once again mock the elder Paul. – AntiWar.com
