Comment: There are two forces at work here.

There are two forces at work here.

1. Political baiting by Blitzer. He could care less about Ron Paul, but he does in this situation as the disenfranchised senior Congressman is given short (no) shrift by the GOP and his son doesn't seem to mind.

2. Political apologist for the GOP by Rand Paul. Whether this is either a not-taking-the-bait approach by Rand or simply covering for the GOP to keep up the appearance of being a team player, is unknown. I would have defended my father first, especially if my father was Ron Paul, but that's just me.
