That’s right. Takes me back to the last time I wrote a blog post in the middle of the night. Probably I shall go to bed now. It’s been a long, strange trip: several 30-plus minute questions; a fair number of…

All I can say is, “Come on, Aaron.” What does Rand Paul have to do with any of this? There is all the difference in the world between Godfrey Bloom, an Alf Garnett-like character whom no one in his right mind has…
