    The most effective ally we have when it comes to constitutional rights, judging from the past week or so, is Rand Paul.  He's more passionate about it, and unlike Wyden and Co. he's not limited by partisan and personal regard for the President.  Are we willing to make friends with Rand Paul on this issue?  I know I am, and that's even without his support for actually cutting the Defense budget.

      Rand Paul is a freaking nightmare for civil rights, women, and anyone who isn't a one percenter. Oh, and he's also no great shakes for civil liberties-more like a
      trainwreck  actually.

      Rand Paul is for Rand Paul. Period.

      I hope this distressing mancrush on him amongst democrats is of short duration.
