It seems the recent turmoil in Egypt is giving Rand Paul a new chance to pick a fight with the neocons in his party. He just tweeted:
In Egypt, democratic authoritarianism is replaced with military junta. American neocons say send them more of your money.
This is populist winner for Paul. Having to explain how delicate the situation is in Egypt and that country’s importance in the Middle East is not something a candidate can do easily to any audience. But saying “Washington, DC is sending your money to a country that hates us” is a pretty easy applause line.
Look for this to become a staple of Rand Paul’s stump speeches.
