You know that there is no love lost between the Freeperati and the Rand Paul contingent, right?
I mean, "Randroid" is the nicest thing the rank and file have to say about him.
Well - this came bubbling up from the political cesspool that is CPAC:
Rand Paul wins 2014 CPAC straw poll, Ted Cruz finishes a distant second

Sen. Rand Paul demolished his competition in the 2014 Washington Times/CPAC presidential preference straw poll on Saturday, winning 31 percent of the vote -- nearly three times the total of second-place Sen. Ted Cruz.
Mr. Cruz's 11 percent was still a big improvement for the freshman senator, who won just 4 percent in last year's straw poll. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson was third with 9 percent and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was fourth with 8 percent in results that signal growing discontent with the GOP establishment in Washington.
Indeed, CPAC voters now have an unfavorable view of Republicans in Congress, with 51 percent saying they disapprove of the job the GOP is doing on Capitol Hill. Just last year the GOP had a 54 percent approval rating, and in 2012 they held a 70 percent approval rating.
************************************Rand Paul: 31%
Ted Cruz: 11%
All the other losers (Christie, Bush): less than 10%
So the Ron Paul cultists turned out for Rand.3 posted on 3/8/2014 4:55:28 PM by CatherineofAragon ((Support Christian white males----the architects of the jewel known as Western Civilization.))..
How many Paulestinians did they bus in?
After hearing about the background of those attending CPAC I am not sure I would ever support such a group. I wondered why Ted needed to be at such an event but he has to touch all the hands in his run for president. I just hope he remembers where he came from when he makes it over the top.

Legalized pot gathered more support than Rand.14 posted on 3/8/2014 5:02:19 PM by itsahoot (Voting for RINOs is the same as voting for any other Tyrant.)
This is meaningless, half the voters were under 30 years old. That is a group who don’t show up at the polls.
Also, the Paul’s push legalized marijuana which may account for Paul’s popularity with the Pothead vote.
I like Ted Cruz, but he doesn’t inherit Pauliacs.
I sure wouldn’t be crowing over this....Romney one(sic) the 2012 CPAC straw vote

To: PaulCruz2016; AllIndeed, his (Rand Paul's) father, then-Rep. Ron Paul, won the straw poll twice on a similar libertarian-minded message, though he struggled to translate that support into votes when it came to primaries and caucuses.
GOOD!!! CPAC can choose the little punk all they want, but, thank God he still has to win the votes of the American people in the Primaries; which he WILL NOT do. It would be easier for me to forgive Rand Paul for raping a nun easier than I can forgive him for endorsing, and campaigning for, Mitch "The Bitch" McConnell. I will never forgive him for that, and I will never vote for the little political whore. NEVER!!168 posted on 3/8/2014 8:41:48 PM by Din Maker (If Ted Cruz gave Rand Paul one of his balls, they'd both have one.)
