Commentary: Rand Paul tells a tired, old story

If you notice, they have never been on our side. "They" meaning social conservatives. "Our" meaning African-American people. They have never been on our side and always, they have claimed "principle" to justify it. So remarks like the one above that got Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul in trouble last week are surprising only in the sense that one is surprised to hear an oldie on the radio one hasn't heard in awhile.
