Rand Paul is wiley and could be dangerous, if he doesn’t fall into any race-baiting or get caught with a young boy.
“They can’t have it both ways. And so I really think that anybody who wants to take money from Bill Clinton or have a fundraiser has a lot of explaining to do. In fact, I think they should give the money back,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, said. “If they want to take position on women’s rights, by all means do. But you can’t do it and take it from a guy who was using his position of authority to take advantage of young women in the workplace.”
How many Democrats have been busted for abusing their power?
Some Democrats have sprung to the Clintons’ defense, including Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who said it was “infuriating” for Mr. Paul to cite Mr. Clinton as a response to the GOP’s policies toward women.
“How dare he point out our hypocrisy!!” (says almost every liberal ever called out for hypocrisy)
Mr. Paul, though, said in his interview this week that Ms. McCaskill, who is supporting Mrs. Clinton in 2016, didn’t always feel that way. In 2008, she supported then-Sen. Barack Obama over Mrs. Clinton and commented that she wouldn’t want her daughter to be near Mr. Clinton.
Democratic National Committee spokeswoman Lily Adams said Friday that Mr. Paul’s voting record on women’s pay belies his stated concern for them.
“If his claims of concern for women are sincere he should start by rethinking his opposition to the Violence Against Women’s Act, paycheck fairness and the right of women to make their own health care decisions,” she said.
The VAWA is flawed and by its very nature sexist; imagine if Republicans supported a bill that even from the very NAME implied it only protected one group of people. Violence against anyone is a problem. But to hypocrites like Lily Adams, domestic violence is only perpetrated by men, just like hate crimes are only perpetrated by whites.
It’s also rich talking about paycheck fairness when the President’s own staff is paid unevenly. And, y’know, it’s kind of not true.
Also, sure, women can make their own health care decisions as long as men don’t have to subsidize it. Why should I have to pay for some woman to have sex with another man? I don’t even buy lapdances for my friends.
