That Was Then. This Is Now

Courtesy of Daily Kos, this little tidbit:

Rand Paul before the election:

"Rand Paul has made a ban on wasteful earmark spending in Washington D.C. one of the key points of his campaign ..."

Rand Paul now, days after the people of Kentucky elected him:
"In a bigger shift from his campaign pledge to end earmarks, he tells me that they are a bad “symbol” of easy spending but that he will fight for Kentucky’s share of earmarks and federal pork"

A "shift from his campaign pledge."  That's a nice way of saying that he lied, and the teabaggers lapped it up like a pack of thirsty dogs. Boy, are the you guys in for some surprises in the next few months.

The only thing that remains to be seen is what argument you are going to buy into so you can blame it all on the Democrats.
