Sen. Rand Paul (R-Tenn) shares so many of his dad Ron's goofy ideas that I've always been tempted to write him off as merely a slightly less bizarre chip off a very strange block.
But it seems to me that he has exactly the right idea about how Republicans should deal with the current fiscal impasse: use ju jitsu on President Obama and the Democrats. Give them all the taxes they want in a huge display of bipartisanship and cooperation- and then let them own it come election time.
Maybe the way to get the electorate's attention is to allow them to experience what we've been warning them about.
