While I'm not too excited by McConnell

Actually he reminds me of the slow talking droopy joweled disney cartoon dog that was always supposed to be about a half-wit. On the other hand, McConnell has been coming our way on a lot of issues. At this point I believe Rand more than has his ear, and that there is a strong chance McConnell can be "saved" for liberty though he may never be a leader. At any rate, he is not a John McCain or Lindsey Grahm type Neocon, and his leadership position is a very valuable ally to have. With McConnel behind him Rand may not need our money bombs, he'll get the inside funding instead, which of course doubles his fundraising power while reducing the insider dollars someone else will ahve to run against him. So, while I am not excited by this, I see where he is coming from and what he is trying to do. If he is successful it will ahve been a master stroke, if'll be the end. It's a gamble Rand has to make though, or he'll end up as policially effective as his father was i.e. ignored, hated, and almost hounded out of the party.
