The headlines neatly tell the story. “Ron Paul’s Passive-Aggressive Campaign Against Rand Paul.” Rand Paul Has a Daddy Issue.” “Like Father, Like Son? Not Exactly.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has endeavored so much to distinguish his “libertarian-ish” views from his father’s “voluntarist” politics that any snark from the paterfamilias generates a story. He’ll joke that he’s still looking at who to endorse; it will be reported like Saturn devouring his offspring.
There will be no snark this weekend. As Rand Paul heads out of the country for a medical mission to Haiti, Ron Paul will make a print and e-mail pitch to donors. It is his first such email on Rand Paul’s behalf since the April 7 start of his presidential bid.
“I know the media likes to play this little game where they pit us, or certain views, against each other,” the elder Paul will write, according to excerpts provided by the younger Paul’s campaign. “Don’t fall for it. They’re trying to manufacture story lines at liberty’s expense. You’ve spent years seeing how the media treated me. They aren’t my friends and they aren’t yours.”
