Change I Can Believe In

Jack Conway, Kentucky’s attorney general and one of the two leading candidates for the Senate seat on the Democratic side [said about Rand Paul, who has won the Republican nomination for Kentucky Senator]: “He wants to do away with the Department of Agriculture. He wants to do away with the Department of Education.”

Lt. Gov Dan Mongiardo, the other major Democratic candidate said, “Rand Paul says here’s your gun, here’s your land, God bless you, good luck. That’s his form of government.”

But surely his Democratic opponents have something bad to say about Dr. Paul?

[No, this isn’t a substantive post. And I don’t put much stock in electoral politics. But it’s not every day someone with strong libertarian views wins a Senate nomination, and actually has a good chance to win the general election. So allow me to enjoy the moment.]
