Sen. Rand Paul Delivers Response to President’s Speech on Military Action in Syria

…His argument was, in essence: Republicans, you may not care about the freedom and dignity of foreigners, or children writhing in pain and going still on a cold hospital floor. But you sure do love war and the military! We’re going to restore dignity, freedom and life to some foreigners by bombing them — couldn’t you overlook the fact that foreigners will benefit, as long as we get to blow some stuff up?..

…Neo-Neocon is on to something. I just realized the point of Obama’s horrific formulation: Another implied self-brag.

In the personhood (?–personhood? Maybe not personhood, maybe something grander) of Barack Obama, we find the perfect synthesis of all virtue.

Why, he’s almost Arthurian in his mind…
