To cleanse the palate, via the Corner, consider this the latest bit of 2016 jockeying between Cruz and Rand Paul. Paul’s spent the past year insisting that the party needs to do more to reach out to young voters, once saying, “We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos.” Now watch the clip. Consider this ante upped.
I’d say the odds are 50/50 that, come next year, some unnamed Cruz supporter will tell a major media outlet that Rand has one on his right bicep of Neville Chamberlain. Incidentally, did anyone ever claim responsibility for that Cruz poster in L.A. that made the rounds online a few weeks ago? As funny as it was, it was crudely true to his political brand: He’s the one guy in the prospective presidential field who won’t play by the establishment’s rules, who’s going to do things his way no matter how much contempt is tossed at him. No wonder he’s thinking about making the Winston tat permanent.
