It should not be forgotten that in 2010 Rand Paul told Time that he considered the libertarian label an albatross.
During an interview earlier this week, Rand could not break that news to Sean Hannity, so he agreed with Hannity, when Hannity called him a libertarian, though Rand did attempt to then dilute the “damage” by calling himself a “libertarian Republican”.
During the interview, Rand also seemed to take a non-libertarian position on the drug war. He seemed to indicate that he was in favor of a continuation of federal meddling into the lives of those taking street drugs, though he is said he was against current harsh penalties. As ambiguous as ever, no one not on drugs could possibly understand what this means.
For you Rand P fans, who like to spin things, here’s the clip you need to spin.
