Paul Distances Himself From Paul

What is so remarkable about Rand Paul's put down of the 1964 Civil Rights Act is that he can't or hasn't bothered to understand that civil rights apply to and are a concern of more than just people with dark skin. But then his namesake, Ayn Rand, didn't get it either.

The opposition of Paul, the Republican nominee to replace retiring Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky, has now gone viral, as well it should. Paul inevitably has walked back from his campaign trail natterings and swears he does not want to repeal the act, but still doesn't seem to get what the shit storm he unleashed is about.
