Bill Press is a Democratic Party operative. He’s as partisan as they come.
Thus, it is with keen interest that I share this Facebook post that Press put out there.
Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have a man crush on Rand Paul.
Yes, it’s enough to drive me to confession: Every day I find myself agreeing more and more with the Libertarian from Kentucky. He may be running for president as a Republican, but he says some things that any liberal Democrat could support.
Who’s the leading champion to shut down NSA’s vast phone spying operation? Rand Paul!
Who blames Republican hawks, not Barack Obama, for the Iraq War and the eventual rise of ISIS? Rand Paul!
On the environment, Rand Paul says: “You’ll find I’m a tree hugger, literally…I compost.”
On Ferguson, Missouri, Rand Paul said: “The police department showed up in grear more fitting for Fallujah or Kandahar.”
And on the Republican Party, Rand Paul says: “Right now, the Republican brand sucks.”
No wonder I have such a man crush on Rand Paul. But I’d feel a lot less guilty – if he’d just run as a Democrat!
It’s rather weird, but I am feeling the same kind of “man crush” myself about Sen. Paul.
However, I’m not a paid partisan hack. I’m just a guy out here flapping my proverbial jaws about politics and other things.
Bill Press is finding himself being drawn into saying nice things about a Republican against his partisan loyalties, given that he works for Democrats, who pay him real American money to offer them political advice.
Therefore, I am thinking he needs an intervention.
Am I likely to vote for Paul should he obtain the GOP presidential nomination? Probably not.
Then again …
