Good to see Sarah Palin exposing Rachel Maddow for the overrated, lying, left-wing agenda-driven smear machine that she is (to think there's some idiots on the Left who view Maddow as the 2nd coming of Walter Cronkite). Rand Paul became George Soros' latest whipping boy for doing nothing more than offering a libertarian perspective on the Civil Rights Act, nothing more, nothing less. But when you're desperate, losing election after election and sagging in national approval rating polls, there's nothing like having a red herring (esp, if it involves race) to throw in the mix and get people distracted from the real problems facing this country, much less who's causing them. People have a right to agree or disagree with Paul's libertarian views, but trying to make him out to be a "RACIST!!!" when there's no smoking gun (and which he's flat-out denied hundreds of times) is just pathetic.Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accused MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Sunday of conducting a "prejudiced" interview with Rand Paul, in which the Tea Party candidate infamously aired skepticism about the reach of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Speaking to "Fox News Sunday," the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee said that Paul was being subjected to the same biased media coverage that marked her run for office, before offering her Tea Party-backed candidate a bit of advice.
"One thing we can learn in this lesson that I have learned and Rand Paul is learning now is don't assume that you can engage in a hypothetical discussion about constitutional impacts with a reporter or a media personality who has an agenda, who may be prejudiced before they even get into the interview in regards to what your answer may be," Palin said. "You know, they are looking for the gotcha moment. And that evidently appears to be what they did with Rand Paul, and I'm thankful he clarified his answer about his support for the Civil Rights Act."Paul sparked several days worth of controversial coverage when he suggested to Maddow that the government had meddled too far into private enterprise in the passage of the Civil Rights Act and other legislation.
