consultants are sandburs

Flocking together at a turkey farm.

That being at Falwell's Liberty University. Rand Paul on a what-in-the-world-are-you-thinking-Rand foray toward becoming very damaged self-discredited goods very quickly. HuffPo. Rand does not read Slate, or if he reads it the explanation is even more damning. Like he may believe Ken Cuccinelli has something to add to his own credibility. Or a recent passion for climate science denial that yearns to be fed by finding a Tonto to his Lone Ranger. Rush Limbaugh, a fan of Cuccinelli, probably thinks Rand Paul is doing the right thing, mixing with the right people, cementing a proper alliance. Reasonable minds may differ with Limbaugh analyses - indeed, even Republican minds. More Cuccinelli/GOP handwringing on Politico, here. The fact is Rand Paul has his own brand - actually his father's brand - and mixing in Cuccinelli fears and biases will not make Rand's Brand high octane, it will make it toxic/explosive/miasmic. Cuccinelli is a bomb thrower. An agent provocateur.

And - LIBERTY UNIVERSITY. Falwell. Rand, really? That's who, scratch beneath the surface, you are? Okay. If you say so.
