Really, dude? Really?

…or, Yet another reason the enmity for Manchuria John McCain held by libertarian-leaning conservatives is so very well-deserved:

Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain received a hearty ovation from Senate Democrats at a Capitol Hill meeting with President Obama Wednesday, helping to enliven a Democratic caucus meeting to discuss the Obama administration’s surveillance scandals and an impending budget crisis….

McCain earned his Democratic applause after saying that a presidential matchup between Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton would be a “tough choice,” in an interview with The New Republic published Wednesday.

Tough choice? For an establishment go-along-to-get-along RINO, maybe. But for folks like me? Oh man. It would be, hands-down, the absolute easiest choice since I’ve been old enough to vote. In all my years of voting (first election was 1996) I don’t think I’ve ever voted for anyone on the national level so much as voted against people. But Rand Paul? I would damn near walk barefoot over broken glass to the polls to vote for him, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Which, of course, is why the Republican establishment is going to do everything they can to thwart him between now and then.
