If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Rand Paul...is Finished

Rand Paul, who just won the GOP nomination to the US Senate seat in Kentucky recently made some stupid comments on an MSNBC interview with the MadCow, Rachel Madow.  Going into the next of the journalistic enemy was a very dumb thing to do.  But worse still,
He'll be on "Meet the Press", this coming Sunday. David Gregory, the host, has instructions to destroy Paul.
Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it.  He's given new energy to the "conventional wisdom" that the Tea Party are all racist assholes.  Bu even worse, he's given the movement a "black eye" that will be used to tar it in the coming months. 
But many more of the Tea Party endorsed candidates who will gain visibility in the congressional campaign in coming months will, like Paul, be making their first-ever foray in seeking elective office. Like babes, they will go into brutal hand-to-hand combat with Establishment GOP, then Democratic opponents and their sympathetic journos, all of whom are seasoned veterans.

Thanks Rand...my advise to you is DONT GO ON MEET THE PRESS!!!  You are not a national candidate yet, nor do you have the necessary experience to do well yet.  While you may very well be smarter than your father, you don't have the experience yet, to deal with these assholes.  Doing so will only destroy what's left of your candidacy.
