For John, BLUF: Methadras said...Political cowards inhabit the Senate from both sides. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I quote a post from the Althouse blog.
Senators who find it hard to explain why they didn't stand with Rand.Like Professor Althouse says, weak. Including Senators McCain and Graham.
"I don't know, there's a lot of debates I don't join that I agree -- I've got stuff to do and was doing a lot of other things," Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) told HuffPost when asked about his whereabouts the day before. "I think the question should be answered. I think [Sen.] Paul was generally right on it."Weak.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) [said] "I'm working right now on many, many, other issues... Presumably you go down on the floor because you believe in something"... though he argued that the method Paul used to raise his questions and his timing weren't "particularly constructive."
NOTE: Local Lowell reference in the Comments at the Althouse blog:
