What Happens In The Beltway Stays In The Beltway
The Atlantic's Joshua Green observes that the DC-centric firestorm surrounding Rand Paul's manifest right-wing crankery isn't exactly making many waves in Kentucky. This, I think, more or less to be expected. If Paul's candidacy is to be viewed as a disqualifying event for Bluegrass State Republicans, the disqualification will probably have to come at the hands of ... Kentucky Republicans, who probably aren't interested in such things. What this says about the moral bankruptcy of elite institutions is left as an exercise for the reader.
