Apparently the Paul insanity on foreign policy is hereditary

Rand Paul has come out with his prescription for dealing with the Ukraine crisis.

Like the delusional foreign policy beliefs he shares with his father, Ron, it makes no sense whatsoever.

This guy will not be president- and anyone with an ounce of common sense will do everything in his or her power to make sure that he doesn't even come close. Reality matters- and it seems that the Paul family just doesn't do reality.

Seldom in American history have two less qualified men than Rand Paul and Ted Cruz done so well in preliminary Republican polls. Here's hoping that the party of Lincoln and TR and Ronald Reagan comes to its senses in the coming months- at least outside Iowa, where the nuttiness seems to be part of our state party's DNA.

Hey! Let's be fair. Rand Paul didn't get his Ukraine policy from his father. Ron Paul's advice is "just stay out of it for pity's sake."

Rand Paul's policy is a lot more interventionist, so I thought you would like it more.
I do. Rand is less crazy than his father, as I've said for some time. He recognizes to some extent, at least, that isolationism isn't an option in the modern world; Ron still hasn't learned the lessons of the 'Thirties and World War II.

But Rand is still crazy.
