U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) released a web ad yesterday ahead of tomorrow’s expected announcement that he is running for President.  Easter probably wasn’t the best day to release a political video, but with his announcement being two days away releasing it today wouldn’t have been practical either.

The ad paints Paul as a different kind of Republican.  I doubt anyone would dispute that.  Whether “different” is considered a net positive or negative will be up to the electorate.

  1. Rand Paul has finally officially declared his candidacy for the 2016 Republican nomination for POTUS.

    This can only mean one thing — he has finally received his shipment of RNC-issued materials that are essential for any Republican considering a run for the Presidency:
    – his copies of “The Idiot’s Guide to Right Wing Ideology”, “The U.S., Theocracy, and Me”, and “The White Christian Male’s Survival Manual”
    – a World Geography coloring book
    – a case of Lipton tea bags
    – an Etch-a-Sketch and a ‘reset button’, essential equipment for any Republican nominee during the post-primary campaign.
