Some are now saying that Jack Conway started the firestorm against Rand Paul which raged across American Liberal Media yesterday with a lie. A look at Conway's statement which was the spark for that firestorm reveals that the media bought into Conway's lie.
If Jack Conway cannot produce a statement by Rand Paul calling for the "repeal" of the Civil Rights Act, or the "repeal" of the ADA, then he lied.
It is now obvious to some that the DNC likely cued Chris Matthews in advance of this series of questions. It is also likely that they put Jack Conway up on the show to fire the first lie of the campaign.
But that's nothing new to Rand Paul, he won a landslide primary victory against a campaign based upon similar lies.
The real shame is that now his former GOP opponent will likely take heat for having handed the liberals some of the ammunition that they will fire against Paul until November.
Everyone knew that the liberal media was going to go on attack against Rand Paul. He represents not only a threat in this one race, but he represents an opportunity for the democrats to put a stain on Mitch McConnell, the most powerful republican in the nation.

Chris Matthews Sets Record Straight: Jack Conway Lied
MATTHEWS: He has never called for repeal. Jack Conway was wrong last night in saying he had. That`s a fact.That`s a reportable fact. He has never said he wants to repeal it. In fact, he`s never categorically said he would have voted against it had he been in the position to do so. [VideoCafe]
