KY-Sen. 2010: DeMint Declares for Paul (Southern Avenger)

Few were surprised this week when Jim DeMint endorsed Rand Paul in his bid for US Senate in Kentucky. That the man many consider the most conservative member of the Senate endorsed the son of the man many consider the most conservative member of Congress is indicative of DeMint’s genuine commitment to what most consider traditional Republican principles. Likewise, that GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell so vehemently opposes Paul and has so enthusiastically endorsed his opponent is indicative of his commitment to the Republican status quo-at the expense of genuine conservatism.

Rand Paul has gone from relative obscurity to a serious contender for the US Senate because he has articulated a sound, common sense conservative message at an uncommon time. There is a genuine, rising fear about runaway spending and debt today, and whereas Republicans in the past have been able to convince voters they loved guns or loathed gays enough for constituents to ignore their big government records, the current Tea Party-influenced political environment seems to be, finally, a rejection of that never-ending cycle. The Tea Party folks in Kentucky and those who sympathize with them, see supporting Paul as a chance to tell Washington they’re not going to take it anymore. The problem is the Republican establishment wants these voters to keep taking it.

(Alex Pareene is in Harlem for the “trial” of President Obama at James David Manning’s ATLAH World Ministries Church. He’ll be updating this post all day with pictures, description and video from the festivities.)

Apparently, the massive rally that was to begin at 9 A.M. at 116th Street and Broadway (near Columbia University, which trial organizers claim “sold” Obama his undergraduate degree) never materialized. Alex then made his way a few blocks north to the Rev. James David Manning’s ATLAH World Ministries Church. Manning had claimed that up to 30,000 people would show up. Looks like that estimate was a little off! But there were some people gathering outside:

Alex emails:

Decent turnout. 75 ppl maybe. Lady walks by and asks what’s going on. I explain. “oh, these crazy people have been here forever,” she says.

Alex also spoke with a man named Bill, who said he’d come up from Miami for the trial. “This is serious business,” he said. As of 11 A.M., organizers were inside the church and preparing to open the doors. Stay tuned.

The birth control pill was invented 50 years ago this month. CBS Nightly News anchor Katie Couric was all set to “break out the cake and streamers.” But first, she wanted to inform her viewers of a pressing national need: federal subsidies for the pill. Seriously.

Illogically high expectations about pinpoint accuracy and target discrimination in a fire-fight are the fantasy of armchair-academics and videogame players. Men on the ground know that war is sloppy and rough. Combat is not a noun or a place that you are “in,” but rather a verb, a thing that you “do” to other people. Principally, combat is imposing your will on the enemy by violence of action and the ugly truth is that the process kills all kinds of people: good ones, bad ones, and yes, even our own. When our expectations of success and precision are unrealistic it threatens not only our service men, it emboldens our enemy, and it breaks our will to stand and fight.
-Ilario Pantano, May 8, 2007 in defense of the Haditha Marines

Ilario Pantano recently won the Republican primary and stands a good chance of winning a seat in NC District 7 against Democratic incumbent Mike McIntyre. But apparently Pantano’s past has “come back to haunt him”. Not, really though…
