Schrödinger’s Senator, the physics paradox known in this dimension as Rand Paul, a man from the multiverse where anything is possible including being elected in the 2016 Goat Rodeo and being elected to the Senate or both or neither can happen at the same time or never, tells us that he is very concerned about Comrade Trump’s SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh (the noted BFF of the Orca):
“Breaking with many Republican colleagues, the Kentucky senator Rand Paul has revealed his concern over Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Anthony Kennedy on the supreme court.
“Paul told Fox and Friends on Sunday he was worried Kavanaugh, a judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, could cancel out supreme court justice Neil Gorsuch’s vote on fourth-amendment cases and allow the federal government to collect the phone records of millions of Americans.”
Not to put too fine a spin on it, Rand Paul is not such a fan of privacy that he would stop Kavanaugh on overturning women’s right to an abortion (based upon the 14th Amendment Due Process clause stipulating privacy), but telephone records? Perhaps the Senator Pumpkin Patch’s prank calls to his gated-community neighbor (but we are only guessing) might get swept up in a dragnet! Oh, how Next Door would talk!
Before you get your hopes up and do something foolish like believe Rand Paul, let us recall that he was opposed heart and soul and said he would do “whatever it takes” to block the approval of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state, you know, right before the Senator from the Multiverse voted to confirm him.
