      The main thing I was interested in was how people would respond to Paul's griping about TSA searches.

      I know many people who gripe in the same way. Paul's griping will strike a cord with those people.

      My guess is that very very few people - mainly political junkies like Daily Kos readers - will be aware of his plans to "deliver a speech about how the government really, really needs to tell women what to do with their bodies?"

      Paul's griping about the search is a sound bite. Sound bites work.

      "I pay more in taxes than freakin' Mitt Romney! And Romney's a gazillionaire! Unfair!"

      -What have you got that a man could drink with just a minimum risk of blindness and death.
