A brief diary, because when it comes to the GOP, there's no such thing as "too much" in-fighting:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blasted fellow GOP Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, saying the two “think the whole world is a battlefield.”It likely won't result in too many hard feelings long-term — they'll undoubtedly have kissed and made up long before the next Republican obstruction initiative, driven by the countless other issues they do find themselves in agreement about, calls them together.
Paul criticized the hawkish senators for thinking the laws of war should take precedence over the Bill of Rights. The two had criticized Paul’s statements about drone policy during the Kentucky Republican’s nearly 13-hour filibuster on Thursday.
“They think the whole world is a battlefield, including America, and that the laws of war should apply,” Paul said in an interview on Fox News about McCain and Graham, who had described Paul’s comments about drones as “ridiculous.”
Still, it's always nice to add another item to the list of Republican identity crises that's been growing larger with every passing day.
Keep up the good work, Senators.
