Decisions...decisions

Quote:Sen. Rand Paul has arrived at his “moment of truth,” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow argued on Friday, arguing that the Kentucky Republican may be the first 2016 presidential candidate to exit the race.

On Saturday, she explained, Paul will need two-thirds of the state Republican executive committee to approve the creation of a special caucus that would allow the Tea Party senator to run for re-election to the Senate while seeking the GOP’s presidential nomination.

“Unless Rand Paul gets that two-thirds super-majority vote tomorrow, which would allow him to run for his Senate seat and for president at the same time, which is what he wants to do, as of tomorrow, he’s gonna have to pick which of those two seats he wants to run for,” she said. “One or the other: presidential run, which he will almost assuredly lose, or Senate re-election bid — something which he would have a much better chance at, even though it wouldn’t be guaranteed.”

Rand. Never liked the guy. I like his dad, even if pure libertarianism (is that a word?) is bullshit. I agree with a lot of the things he said. Rand got his popularity from his dad's hard work, and in the end is just another republican. He may be full of shit, but I'd at least respect him more if he acted like he had a backbone.

Meh, he never really mattered in this run anyway (or ever), good riddance.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
