Helloooooooooooooooo 2016 Republican Primary:
Speaking on the Laura Ingraham show on Friday, the Kentucky senator and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate took Christie to task for his recent admonitions.

“I think criticizing the Second Amendment movement and the over-the-top ‘give me my money’ stuff, ‘I want all 60 billion now or I’ll throw a tantrum,’ I don’t think that’s going to play well in the Republican primary,” Paul said, referring to speculation that Christie is also preparing for a 2016 White House run.

In his interview, Paul characterized Christie's criticism as a retreat on gun rights.

“You have some Republicans backing down like Christie backing down and criticizing the NRA, and I think that doesn’t do any good,” he said.

Paul continued, claiming that Christie's recent moves were a sign that he was "solidifying his support with Democrats in New Jersey and maybe liberal Republicans.”

I could mount a defense of Christie for being a responsible public official and note Rand Paul's mindless asshole fuckery in the face of devastation. But I wont. Because what I really want is for Christie to suffer a brutal defeat at the hands of a true nutjob like Rand Paul. It seems to me that batshit crazy wingnut Rand Paul is looking to make absolutely certain that he drags the entire 2016 Republican ticket right into the sewer.

Good on you Rand!
