Today Rand Paul let loose at the deputy assistant energy secretary for efficiency. He advised Kathleen Hogan:
I think there should be some self-examination from the administration on the idea that you favor a woman’s right to an abortion, but you don’t favor a woman or a man’s right to choose what kind of light bulb, what kind of dishwasher, what kind of washing machine.
Toilets are a big source of his anger at bureaucratic “busybodies.” The freshman senator goes on to admit: “I have been waiting for 20 years to talk about how bad these toilets are.”
Tea party or no tea party, I suspect he spoke for many.
