    Right Now - Rand Paul: Back and talking to Russian TV


    Rand Paul: Back and talking to Russian TV

    Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul has reoriented his media strategy after his nightmarish interviews with Rachel Maddow and Good Morning America last week -- national media, for now, is not on his radar. The last national interview we'll see goes to Russia Today, an English language station funded by the Russian government, and one that has expressed an amazingly high level of interest in Paul's father and the tea party movement. (This was shot before GMA.)

    The questions are -- how to put this? -- less tricky than the ones put to Paul by Maddow. On the tea party movement: "Is it a case where people want more real people and less politicians representing them?" On the Federal Reserve: "What is your take on this institution: Helpful or harmful?"

    Liberal sites are hitting Paul for saying the children of illegal immigrants should not automatically gain U.S. citizenship. I don't think Paul or his father have ever been shy about their problem with the interpretation of the 14th Amendment on that issue, but I suppose this demonstrates Paul's Palin-like ability to generate fervid commentary from liberals even in soft interviews.

    You mean they focused on the issues from 2010, as opposed to 1964? Shocking.

    His hair looks like someone had their hands on his head while he was "bobbing for apples".

    That would be Mitch McConnell.
