Rand Paul won. Does that mean that political America is going to actually read and apply the Constitution? Likely not. It does mean that there is a new demon for the news media to attack. It also means that you cannot have a rational discussion of the pros and cons of the civil rights act of 1964.
Maybe it means that crooked pols won't get paid off by special interest groups to lean one way or another? Not hardly.
Rest assured that the beltway bs will continue unabated in spite of rational thought and common sense. There will still be scandals and good reason for political cartoons.
What it means is that we will continue as before. The tea party will still be seen as a new third party that isn't. Libertarians will be seen as a fringe group. And, if some pigs are more equal than others it's because they bring home the bacon.
