"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
When McConnell says " I'm all wired up here,,,um" it reminds me a teenage girl telling her teenage boyfriend her parents are in the next room. But like a horny teenage boy Paul doesn't hear that.
So when the parents barge into the room the twisting of the facts begin which is running rampant here..
Gee, I wonder if that tape will be on political campaign ads in the future........

We do know all about the teabaggers in the Tea party.
Rand Paul was on Meet The Press today and was asked about the video of him and McConnell. First they showed the video of Boehner complaining about an article in the Wall Street Journal reporting an unnamed senior whitehouse official who reportedily said" we don't care how this last because we are winning. Boehner angrily replies,"This isn't some damn game." Then they show Paul's screw up on mic of saying they are going to win.
What was Paul's reaction? The typical deer in headlights.
Yes, it is a damn game fools.
This is so much less scandalous than the times Obama himself got caught with a hot mic... Which aren't even the worst cases of stuff being said when the person involved thought noone was listening.Yes, it is a damn game fools.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
