You can actually sense the dismissive tone in Politico’s write-up of Democrats’ latest attack on Rand Paul:
Down in the polls and running out of time in the Kentucky Senate race, Democrats are broadening their attack over the alleged “Aqua Buddha” prank from Republican Rand Paul’s college days, saying it shows he’s insensitive to women.
“I think Rand Paul’s views and actions border on misogyny,” said Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who joined a conference call organized by Democrat Jack Conway’s campaign Thursday.
With a new poll showing Paul leading the race by 5 percentage points, Conway clearly senses that he needs to stay on the offensive despite mixed reviews from even his allies about his controversial new ad, which accuses Paul of tying up a woman and blindfolding her and making her worship a god called “Aqua Buddha” when he was a student 30 years ago at Baylor University.
“This is an individual who is engaged in some egregious, unacceptable behavior, and the ad calls him out on it,” Schultz said on the call.
I’m really confused here. Are Kentucky voters a bunch of ignorant backwoods snake handlers susceptible to believe that Rand Paul professed genuine religious devotion to his bong? Or are they a bunch of liberal feminists outraged that Rand Paul might have been disrespectful to womyn in his college days? It’s bad enough that both arguments are absurd to begin with, but the fact they cancel each other out is just embarrassing,
