Rand Paul was supposed to appear on Meet The Press Sunday, but canceled - only the third guest ever to do so. His handlers claim it's do to exhaustion, but internet rumors claim that the GOP told him to stop talking! As bad as his interview with Rachel Maddow was, he wasn't finished. The next day he went on Good Morning America to cry that he wasn't getting a honeymoon and whined that Obama was un-American in his criticism of BP by putting his boot heel on the throat of BRITISH Petroleum. He added that the President's reaction is "part of this sort of blame game society" where "it's always someone's fault. Maybe sometimes accidents happen." He actually included the recent mining "accident" where 30 miners were killed do to unsafe working conditions as part of his "shit happens" interview on GMA. When will the GOPers learn that when they say something stupid, it's very likely going to be on video?
Back to the nest: So RaPaul slept on TRMS interview and realized what an asshat he made of himself on her show Wednesday night so he did what every foot-in-mouth politician does, run to the womb of safety and shoot the messenger! He went on Laura Ingraham's radio program crying what a mistake he made going on Rachel's show and mama countered with a mild swipe at Rachel exclaiming, "What did you think you were going to get when you go on Rachel Maddow's show, that's the kind of question you're going to get." Seriously? She asked him to clearly state his positions. The nerve! I'm sure Fox News would've asked the important questions that people really want to know of their right wing politicians: Coke or Pepsi? McDonald's or Burger King? Maryanne or Ginger? The fair and balanced network, they report, you decide.
I have to say that Chris Matthews was a class act in his praise for Rachel after her interview with Rand Paul. He discussed the controversial remarks on the Civil Rights Law and Obama's handling of the Gulf oil spill with Clarence Page and Jonathon Martin.
