    FRANKFORT — By effectively ending his presidential campaign before Kentucky's primary, Ron Paul has prevented a potentially awkward situation for his son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Bowling Green.
    Despite the popularity of Rand Paul, a Tea Party darling who rose from relative obscurity to become one of Kentucky's most popular political figures, Ron Paul was expected to take a shellacking from presumed GOP nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday.
    The elder Paul hasn't campaigned in Kentucky, and his son hasn't publicly urged Kentucky voters to get behind his father.

    I don't see any embarrassed Pauls, Ron or Rand. I think there are few more important issues that should be addressed instead of trying to catapult a non-existent embarrassment.

    I think you should be embarrassed for posting this.

    Ok why did Rand Paul not actively support his own fathers bid for president?
    I recall that Ron supportd his sons bid for the senate.

    Ron Paul is not going 3rd party because if he did, his son would never have a place in the Republican hierarchy ever again.
