Senator Rand Paul and I are not likely to exchange Christmas cards any time soon – after all, he’s a libertarian and I’m a neoconservative. But I’ll say this: I could watch him piss off the media all day. And even the parts of the media who agree that Rand Paul might have a point sometimes are, I think, still unaware about just how little the American people care when a politician pisses off a reporter.
Seriously, it won’t hurt Rand Paul with the voters if he treats reporters the way that Barack Obama treats reporters. Even if the reporters swear revenge. Possibly because of the reporters swearing revenge, actually.
