Somehow, the following remark from Aqua Buddha seems apropos.

“Does anybody remember Charlie Sheen when he was kind of going crazy…And he was going around, jumping around saying ‘Winning, winning, we’re winning,’” [Sen. Rand] Paul said. “Well I kind of feel like that, we are winning. And I’m not on any drugs.”

Of course, Rand’s father famously got a South Carolina Republican primary debate audience to cheer heroin, so I guess the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

If Rand Paul were on drugs, at least he’d have an excuse for thinking what we’re witnessing in Congress is some kind of victory for morons.
