You're welcome to say that. I don't begrudge anyone their opinion.

From my vantage, the Republicans need to find a way to fold libertarians into the party to solidify their base. After that, they need to find a way to market themselves to moderates, as well as convince democrats to lean this way.

Rand Paul showed this weekend that he has the chops to do all of that. And not only that, he did it in a way that left the Republican establishment stunned and confused and pulling in two directions. You have Mitch McConnell basically forced to support Rand, and McCain and Lindsey Graham calling the libertarians who just got elected "Kookoo birds."

The proof that Rand is in the lead will come when Jeb, Rubio and Christie start sounding like Rand.
