Falling into a trap. that's what.
The Civil Rights Act Paul was (belatedly) discussing was passed in nineteen-something-or-other when Rand Paul was in diapers. It is settled law, and any controversy about it is as dead as mutton. Deader. No-one is proposing to amend it in any respect: not the Democrats, the Republicans, the rogue State of Arizona, the Catholic Church, the Ku Klux Klan, the Boy Scouts of America, nobody.
Why resurrect a dead issue? To elicit a damning sound bite from a man who talks, not in sound bites, but in philosophic terms. Gotcha there, Rand!
Rand Paul needs to learn to give snappy answers to stupid questions.
