In Defense Of Rand Paul’s Iraq Stance
If Mark Twain were alive, he would sermonize that there are three types of lies: lies, damn lies, and Jennifer Rubin’s tirades against Senator Rand Paul’s foreign policy. Ms. Rubin’s latest unschooled and biased polemic appeared as a Washington Post blog post last week. She embarrasses the cerebral faculties like Cleopatra at the Battle of Actium.
Ms. Rubin clucks that in contrast to all other Sunday talk show dunces (who forecast flowers showering on United States soldiers in Baghdad), Mr. Paul does not awaken each night terrified that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will traverse the Atlantic Ocean to attack the United States and install a caliphate. But shouldn’t Senator Paul be applauded for remaining calm in the midst of another hallucinatory clamor to go abroad in search of monsters to destroy?
