During his filibuster earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was widely viewed as an enemy of the state by the mainstream media.

RAND PAUL: You mean, you’re implying a third party or some other party?

CROWLEY: Or if you wanted to become a Democrat. There’s lots of third parties out there. Just wonder if you see, see yourself being anything other than a Republican.

RAND PAUL: No, I’ve always been a Republican and I’m one of those people who actually is a real lover of the history of the Republican Party – from the days of abolition through the days of civil rights. The Republican Party has a really rich history. In our state, I’m really proud of the fact that the ones who overturned Jim Crow in Kentucky were Republicans fighting against an entirely unified Democrat Party. So I am proud to be a Republican, can’t imagine being anything else.

“That is the greatest answer I’ve ever heard,” Glenn said…
