As the political reporter for the Lexington Herald-Leader from 2013-16, I spent a great deal of time with Rand Paul. I heard him reference the Founders a lot, and he talked often about tyranny and liberty. But I'm not at all surprised that Rand is among the first to get on his knees now that the U.S. Senate is making the president a king. But really, we shouldn't expect Rand to defend this nation or the Constitution when he couldn't even defend his front yard.

Think this one sums up the former intrepid reporter very well.

Absolutely Positively

What do you call a political writer who laments that Paul isn't following the Constitution by following it? A WKU journalism graduate.

Enough Already

Sam Youngman has moved to the Peoples Republic of California. Not surprising that a communist would want to live in a state with politicians who most closely represent his dark heart. It is just as well. Real Americans reside in Kentucky and every Sam Youngman we can get to leave makes us stronger as Americans. Good riddance...
