Aaron vs. Rand Paul: The Saga Continues

By on 9.12.13 | 9:28PM

Aaron's bizarre animus against Rand Paul knows no bounds. First he all but accuses the junior senator from Kentucky of being a 9/11 truther; then he calls him "an apologist for al Qaeda." Now he compares him to Vladimir Putin. What's next? Nazi smears?

I understand that fewer and fewer Republican politicians agree with Aaron about foreign policy, but whence all the association fallacies and ad hominem attacks? Could it be, maybe, that name calling is easier than justifying a return to Bush-era policies that left us with $6 trillion wasted and thousands of dead Americans?
