Rand Paul is Learning What It's Like to Be Me, Says Sarah Palin

Breaking News

Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul is feeling what it is like to be Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate said Sunday, comparing the media's preoccupation with Paul's recent statements about the 1964 Civil Rights Act to her own treatment in the press.

Palin said that Paul is seeing firsthand how "gotcha" politics work after the libertarian-leaning Republican spent days on defense spelling out his support for the Civil Rights Act and the government's role in regulating how private businesses can deal with their customers.

Last week, Paul went on defense, appearing on National Public Radio and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow show to say that he would've marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. in support of the Civil Rights Act, but is still critical of federal intervention in private business.
