November 07, 2013 11:20 AM Where Paul’s Op-Eds Can Be Vetted

By Ed Kilgore

Okay, I’ll go for the easy joke about Breitbart.com’s announcement that Rand Paul has decided to make the fierce wingnut website his primary vehicle for opinionating. This wasn’t entirely voluntary, since the Washington Times suspended Paul’s column there because of his chronic plagiarism problems.

So I guess it makes sense that the site known for promoting “the Vetting” (of Barack Obama, of course) might offer Paul better protection against his and his staff’s sloppiness.
