THERE’S A REASON WHY HIS FIRST NAME IS RAND: On Thursday evening, Matt Drudge and Real Clear Politics featured a video of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on socialized medicine:

“With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies. It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery.”

Presumably Think Progress is having kittens over Paul’s quote, since they clipped it for YouTube. But in response, all I can do is shrug and quote from Dr. Hendricks: “Let them discover the kind of doctors that their system will now produce.”
