And another thing...

...about Rand Paul: Do you think all those Republicans who lustily cheered his 12-hour filibuster last year agreed with him on civil liberties? Do you think they're all fans of Edward Snowden? Do you think they all rushed out to join the ACLU?

Or do you think that maybe, just maybe, they liked the fact that someone was willing to stand up to Obama?

Think about it: Do you remember any Republicans caring about the civil liberties of those who were unlawfully detained or tortured during the Bush/Cheney years? But it's a little different when they think the black guy in the White House is spying on them. Or not willing to rule out the use of drones against them.

Drones? Against American citizens? Really?

How deranged, or just plain afraid of black people, do you have to be to believe that?
