Oh, good grief

Just look:

I'm not sure I would trust a guy who had had sexual relations with an intern.

-- Rand Paul, U.S. Senate candidate in Kentucky, responding to former President Clinton's criticism of Paul's promises to repeal college-loan programs and financial-institution regulation

As my mother used to say, "What does that have to do with the price of eggs in Bulgaria?"

So, Mr. Paul can't argue the issue, then, can he? There's nothing much cheaper than an ad hominem attack. Aside from that, it's old news. Very, very old news. Does he then mean that we can't trust Republicans who're likewise guilty of sexual misconduct? (There's quite a list.)

The above quotation of the day is from Time Magazine.
