So Tea Party movement flavor du jour Rand Paul, after sweeping through the Kentucky U.S. Senate GOP primary, has put both feet in his increasingly suspect mouth.
Foot #1: On Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC leftathon, Paul trashed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, essentially claiming that luncheonettes could discriminate against black people.
Foot #2: Apparently to distract attention from that groaner, Paul took aim at the Obama administration’s criticism of petroleum giant BP’s egregious despoiling of the Gulf of Mexico.
Consequently, given the left-leaning proclivities of the mainstream media (read: resoundingly negative reviews of his post-primary performance), Paul has beat feet from a scheduled Meet the Press appearance on Sunday.
Rand Paul: Not the best Tea Party foot solder right now.
