Conservatism on the march ... again

It was amusing to find Rand Paul shamelessly promoting himself as President during the Senate hearings with Hillary Clinton this week.  This is another sign that Republican extreme "conservatives" are now in a crisis about their basic beliefs and, more than that, their "brand" as a whole.  

How about Rand brand?  Like it?  Eh?  Eh? 

The photo montage says it all.
