In the clip below Rand Paul decides to go after Bill Clinton for Monica Lewinsky. Wait, did it suddenly become 1998 again? Why on Earth would he do this?
Let’s remember how well this worked out for the GOP last time. In the subsequent election they lost 5 seats in the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich was toppled as Speaker, Bill Clinton became more popular than ever, and it made Hillary look like a sympathetic figure.
Does the GOP really want a relay of that? This does lend credibility to the view that the only people who want the Clintons to come back more than the Democrats are the Republicans.
But seriously, if Rand Paul wants to the be leader of a new GOP he really needs to get off this old stuff.
