Smug Walter Block, EPJ outwitted by Rand Paul

Smug Walter Block writes on September 6:

"I assume Rand Paul will not only vote against bombing Syria, but be one of the Senate leaders for a “no” vote. But what about Mitch McConnell? Right now, Rand Paul supports his re-election. But suppose Senator McConnell votes in favor of bombing Syria, or abstains. What, then, will be Rand Paul’s decision as to whether or not to continue his support for McConnell? I hope and trust that Rand will then withdraw his support for that candidacy. Interesting times lie ahead of us."

Of course, we all know that Rand Paul lobbied Mitch McConnell, and then McConnell announced on the senate floor that he would vote 'no' on the war upon Syria. Interesting, but McConnell was the ONLY legislative leader, democrat or republican, to be a no vote on Syria.

We all expect a prompt apology from smug Walter Block and the EPJ.
