Comic Relief

Ah...the silly season is upon us. Election 2012 is beginning to heat up a little, even if no Republican has formally entered the fray for the presidential nomination. While the GOP candidates have been a little shy about actually declaring their intentions, thereby requiring them to start filing reports on political donations they've received, they certainly have not been shy about lambasting their presumed opponent, Barack Obama. One of them, Rand Paul, Tea Party darling and a brand new senator, has taken it a step further: he has managed to insult a potential competitor, thereby breaking St. Ronald of Reagan's 11th Commandment.

A dinner that was supposed to be lighthearted and humorous turned a tad serious when freshman Sen. Rand Paul got a bit personal at the expense of former Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war; a position or two, or maybe three," Paul said Wednesday at the Congressional Correspondents' Dinner. "I don't know. He may have more war positions than he's had wives."

Ooooo...that's gotta leave a mark!

Apparently Sen. R. Paul hasn't paid any attention to his father. Either that, or he's as tone deaf as his father. Regardless, Andrew Malcolm, whose Los Angeles Times blog contains the story is clearly appalled:

With friends like these, who needs Democrats?


It's always nice to start the day with a chuckle.
