    Appearing on Rachel's show wasn't the mistake.

    the mistake was trying to skirt around the issue instead of simply laying out his case and discussing the issue with her honesty. She'd have given him the forum and had an honest discussion regarding the particular section of legislation in question had he shown any interest in such a thing instead of trying to avoid explaining his position

    Which is worse for America? Career politicians or people who are simply too stupid to actually BE a politician?

    Rand Paul is hardly a rookie, he's a legacy. If those are his real beliefs, shame on him. If not, he had every reason to know better than to stick his foot that far down his throat. Either way it's far from impressive.

    I don't know why he and the rest of his ilk are even blaming Rachel Maddow, he had already been on three recent interviews (I believe that same day) before saying essentially the exact same things...one of which being NPR's "All Things Considered", another being Wolf Blitzer's show.

    You people really just love to hate Rachel it seems...this story seals that fact.

    Any way, that matters not...she's making her money and mark in the media and will only continue to do so. I think you and your ilk hate her so, because of her penetration in the culture...people of all sides recognize her journalistic integrity, despite her laid back and easy-going style of delivery. Shes' credible...while many others simply aren't.

    Now this fool is being shown for the whack-job he is...and you folks are livid...lashing out in the dark, staggering for someone to blame...other than that total nutjob who said those crazy things and the crazies who believe them with him.

    November really is getting funner, and funner.

    Keep it up guys...really.

    LOL!!!

    So I guess he thinks that his political mistake was letting too many people find out what he really thinks.

    Rand Paul is going to DC

    The Paul's were always the true "Reagan" Candidate, but Republicans refuse to believe that Ronald Reagan is actually that far right!!

    In any case, Rand Paul's mistake is that he is too much of a libertarian. He could very well be part of the ACLU!!

    Can you imagine that?

    Paul is showing his stubborness. He had multiple opportunities to say "Yes I would have voted for Civil Rights" and it all would have been over.

    Hope it is a learning experience or he will have a rough campaign
