In an interview with NPR’S John Harwood this week Rand Paul got a teeny bit upset when pressed on the subject of his ex-employee Jack Hunter. If you remember, Jack Hunter was of Confederate “Southern Avenger” fame. And that is a topic for discussion that Senator Paul really, really doesn’t ever want to talk about under any circumstances EVER. During the interview when Harwood mentioned Hunter Senator Paul accused him of “not wanting to have an intellectual discussion”. Because it isn’t as if we all aren’t dying to know WHY one would hire someone with such a checkered past when you’re a public figure and your life is under a microscope. Go figure!
