Would-be President Aqua Buddha Performs His First Ratfucking Solo Flight -- Oh How Cute!! . . .

Apparently Rand "Aqua Buddha" Paul has become restless and bored with his fruitless flogging of the Benghazi nontroversy and has transitioned to focusing his beady little Opthamologist eyes on the IRS "scandal":

(CNN) – While the Internal Revenue Service maintains it was not focusing on conservative groups out of political bias, Sen. Rand Paul claimed Sunday there was a "written policy" floating around the agency that said IRS officials were "targeting people who were opposed to the president."
"And when that comes forward, we need to know who wrote the policy and who approved the policy," the Republican senator from Kentucky said on CNN's "State of the Union."
Pressed for more precise details about the memo he was referring to, Paul said he hasn't seen such a policy statement but has heard about it.

Hmmmm -- The Gadfly must admit that he is impressed.  For an amateur, this is actually quite a primo bit of political ratfucking by Baby Paul -- an effort that would no doubt bring tears of pride and joy to the eyes of Nixon's original ratfucking posse.

Paul is expertly employing lesson #1 in the dark art of ratfucking.  Throw some bullshit claim out in to the public sphere, one that has no basis in demonstrable proof, but is always qualified by a wink-and-nod supporting claim such as "I have heard" or "sources have told me" or "when it comes forward."  Then just wait for the stenographers and lapdogs in the MSM (Mainstream Media) to sink their teeth in to the bait and - Voila! - next thing you know it's all over the cable news channels, with Fox "News" of course pimping it as furiously as they can, and the major network news channels regurgitating it ad-nauseam because they are too fucking lazy and incompetent, and at times just willfully complicit, to actually investigate and authenticate the claims before lending legitimacy to them by airing them on the public airwaves.

Yes indeed -- The Gadfly thinks it is going be one very long, very hot summer of political ratfuckery and buffoonery.
