"This kind of pointless, macho posturing is no doubt part of the reason Rand Paul is a teabag icon:
"After winning Kentucky's Republican primary Tuesday night, Bowling Green ophthalmologist Rand Paul refused to take the call of congratulations from opponent Trey Grayson, according to Grayson's campaign manager Nate Hodson.
"Hodson did not elaborate, except to say 'it happened.'
"'This is truly a classless act in politics,' said Marc Wilson, a Republican lobbyist and friend of Trey Grayson.". . .
I'm sorry, but Rand's behavior isn't "macho posturing" or any such thing. It's just rude and asshole-like misbehavior. I guess that what comes with being named after an idiot, misguided author (Ayn Rand) by a father who is just as big an idiot (Ron Paul).
