Rand Paul 4 Prez

This weekend was the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), at which they held their 2016 straw poll to see who attendees wanted to see become the Republican nominee. And of course Senator Rand Paul (R-Eprehensible) ran away with it.

Rand Paul, son of repeat Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, is terrible and does not belong anywhere near the White House, no matter how much he may occasionally look like a progressive ally on privacy issues.

It's rare the CPAC straw poll winner ever becomes the Republican nominee. The only reason I'm really mentioning it is to have another opportunity to say that Rand Paul is terrible—and to note that Senator Ted Cruz came in a distant second at 11%. Chris Christie barely registered. Looks like it's going to be another fun nominating year in a wide-open field for Republicans!
