I assume that I'm not the only one enjoying the food fight between Sen. Aqua Buddha and Gov. Fuckhead of Jersey. Christie picked the fight over Paul's "libertarian thought" and they've been insulting each other ever since. My favorite brickbat came from Aqua Buddha:
Paul told reporters after speaking at a fundraiser outside Nashville on Sunday that Christie’s position hurts GOP chances in national elections, and that spending priorities of critics like the governor and Rep. Peter King of New York do more to harm national security.
“They’re precisely the same people who are unwilling to cut the spending, and their ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme — give me all my Sandy money now.’” Paul said, referring to federal funding after the hurricane last year. “Those are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense.”
How dare they stand up for their states in the aftermath of a major natural disaster. The nerve. Also, Kentucky is one of the states that takes much more money out of the federal kitty than they put in while Jersey is helping to support Aqua Buddha's blather.
I'm really enjoying this family feud between the hawks and "libertarians." It's a debate that the GOP hasn't had since the heyday of the America Firsters led by Bob Taft and the internationalists led by Tom Dewey and Dwight Eisenhower. Gov. Fuckhead, however, should use the term "isolationists" instead of "libertarian" because the latter has a positive connotation to the GOP base.
Who'da thunk that I'd be giving advice to Chris Christie or that Rand Paul would be channeling Steve Winwood:
