It is so touching to see Rand Paul put his neck out for the little guy against the man, Obama, who is so unAmerican he guilt trips BP, as if BP didn't already feel bad enough!

Sunday Roundup

This final full week of the 2010 campaign delivered its fair share of Halloween-worthy frights. Topping the ghoulish behavior was the pre-debate head-stomp administered to MoveOn activist Lauren Valle by a Rand Paul supporter. Talk about your monstrous mash. The Paul backer, Tim Profitt, then took chutzpah to a whole new level, telling a reporter that Valle actually owed him an apology. Then there was the fear-mongering intent of Sharron Angle's campaign ads showing groups of menacing-looking Latino men streaming across the border -- a gang of Willie Hortons with a Spanish accent. And there was the president telling Jon Stewart he thinks Larry Summers has done "a heck of job" -- and not meaning it in a Brownie kind of way (despite his "pun intended" attempt to walk it back). Now that's scary. Happy Halloween, HuffPosters!

In the absence of rational arguments, what is the Tea Party left with? Inchoate violence and flailing rage directed at anyone who chooses to observe the nation's problems through the prism of objective reality and facts.

Even though Arianna is backing Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity," and even though I now work for her, I had dismissed the event this Saturday on the Mall as self-indulgent, time-wasting comedy. Until now.
