‘Henny Penny’ Paul

drone rand paul

Berry Craig: More than a few of Paul’s tea party boosters don’t shy from Obama-Hitler comparisons. They love Paul’s Hitler rants and his raves about how government run by “socialist” Democrats — and even “statist” Republicans — imperils “freedom.”

Berry Craig: Controversy, mostly stirred by academics, still surrounds the famous, some say infamous, missions of “Bockscar” and the “Enola Gay.”
