Peter King: 'Rand Paul has set the Republican Party back 50 years'

Some "Neocon Revival" you got there, David Brooks. |||

Not satisfied with inaccurately likening Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to eugenics enthusiast Charles Lindbergh and Hitler-appeasers everywhere, Irish Republican Army fanboy and longshot GOP presidential candidate Rep. Peter King (R-New York) is now playing the (shudder) Goldwater Card:

"If I do run, I intend to win," King said in an interview with The Associated Press ahead of his trip [to New Hampshire]. "But certainly, it's added incentive to prevent the isolationist wing of the party from taking over. Someone like Rand Paul has set the Republican Party back 50 years."

Reason on the hack hawk here.

In other New Hampshire/terrorism news, the Free State Project has issued an entertaining if infuriating demand for apology in response to the Concord Police Department citing the merry band of anarchic libertarians as justification for ordering up a BearCat assault vehicle.
