    Only in his demented, Democrat liberal mind. This is the kind of thing that is costing the Democrat liberals their majority. They don't understand that their lying, corrupt, demeaning, degrading, demonizing, elitist attitudes are making working Americans mad. Their constiuencies are to drugged out and scared they will lose their entitlements to speak out, but the people who actually pay the bills are not and we want them gone.

    It was a fine ad, Jack. About time someone shows Rand Paul to be the complete idiot he truly is. These TeaPers want to play in the big league, yet, when the going gets too difficult, they all pout, stamp their feet, and cry *foul*. President Obama has been called every dirty, filthy name in the book, and then some. And, yet, still continues to shake the hands of those most intent on tearing up his accomplishments and spitting on them.

    I think its pretty funny. I mean who is stupid enough to actually believe it. A democrat complaining about someones religion is a real gasser. We have liberal God haters on the ticker every day and no one is going to buy that BS about what a college kid did that long ago or if it even matters.

    President Obama's Christianity was QUESTIONED all throughout his CAMPAIGN – remember Rev. Wright??? Michelle Obama was 'chastised' over a statement she made about the first time she is REALLY PROUD to be an American!!! The PROBLEM with the RepubliCAN'Ts is that THEY CANNOT BE CALLED OUT!!! They are SO PERFECT and in order to JUSTIFY their PURITY, it's NOT RIGHT to bring things up that happened in their college years!!!

    Well, it's right and it's FAIR PLAY!!! Next time, don't come out campaigning that you are HOLIER than THOU and try to force far-right EXTREMISM and FEAR on the American People when you are NOT so RIGHTEOUS!!!

    DEMOCRATS – Don't Believe the HYPE the media and FAR-RIGHT is pushing out!!! President Obama is on the right track and we need to give him – DOGGONE IT – the rest of his term to PROVE IT!!!! Jeez!!!

    This is T'SAH from Virginia and I approve this message!!!

    NO – plus it's a lie and hopefully the people will see through all of the lies being broadcast on the air. Liberals & lies go together like peas & carrots.

    No it's not Jack! I hope you get slapped with a slander lawsuit. Scumsucking democrats will try anything to decieve us and keep their grip on power. The establishment whether left or right is on notice, we the people surround you! Change is coming, embrace it or be destined to the dustbin of history! The statist neocons and liberals have had their day and their illegal military empire they have turned this former republic into is coming down in flames! I wonder how the federal reserve bankers plan to play this out as the dollar begins to collapse. Very interesting times to live in indeed!

    Why is it ok to question Pres. Obama faith but not Rand Paul just asking

    Rand Paul needs to man up as the tea party folks say. If the situation was revesed, you would see the same ad run by Paul against Conway. Why is it that the republicans can dish it but they can't take it? SUCK IT UP Princess................ and welcome to President Obama's world. His religion is still questioned and from the republican view point, that's perfectly fine.

    If the content in the ad is true about Rand Paul, wouldn't liberals or Democrats be on board with Rand Paul, since they are Godless and hate religion. I would think that an ad like this would be reaching out to Conway supporters to support Rand Paul. It is interesting that a Democrat is criticizing someone's faith, when it is the Democrat Party that is systematically taking faith out of everything.

    Seems a Democrat is trying to run on conservative Christian values...interesting....he wants to paint his opponent as having less than conservative Christian values....interesting.....isnt he breaking away from his party with these "closed minded" ideals?

    Why when questions were raised about the relationship between Obama and the Weather Underground terrorist Bill Aryers, nobody cared, and now that it's Rand Paul, everyone one is concerned about the past?

    The Hipocracy of the Democrats is just breathtakeing.

    I agree that college is a time for finding oneself and that one cannot always be judged for every decision made in that time. However, it is one of the most influential times of life where opinions and ideas form and shape the person one becomes. I'm not sure I would have based an advertising campaign on the word of one woman who would not come forward with her accusations, but I do think it's true that if one can show a throughline of thought patterns to college days, then it's a fair question to ask where his stances lie, and how extreme might they get if elected...

    Yes, this stuff came out, and people like you summarilly dismissed it. But now that it's about your opponent, now it's a big deal, right?

    I don't care if he worships a doorknob, and it's pretty clear that "aquabuddha" is a name made up by snotty frat boys. I do care that he kidnapped a girl and made her bow down to anything to gain her release, which he has not denied. Because she fears retaliation even to this day, it clearly was not all a joke. And no, Republicans are in no position to cry "foul" after their long-standing and ongoing libellous behavior, in and out of campaigns.

    I went to Baylor, the Noze brotherhood was a really funny group of guys that made fun of fraternities and lightened the atmosphere of the campus to tolerable levels. They were not "little Antichrists" or anything like that, just a bunch of jokers. Also, they were banned from campus for not following FRATERNITY rules, not for being anti-Christian. Get your facts straight

    Two wrongs make a right? I guess Rand Paul is certainly being vetted more closely by the press than Hussein Obozo ever was. This is the gospel according to the dope smoking liberals and Oprah watchers. Obozo can do no wrong.

  20. LET'S GO DEMOCRATS!!!!!!

    Yes! The ad hit Paul in the gut. It draws a straight line from his wild days in college to his wild views today. Kentucky you could move your state forward by electing Jack Conway. I believe he will be a future President.

    Canuk you'd have to ask Paul what aquabuddha is, that's his term. Apparently his God in the days of college. Thin skinned people these Teabags!! There's a good analogy there only I can't use it on CNN!! Anyhow, one of the amendments specifies there is no religious test for political office (don't tell Bush) and apparently when the Dems put it in writing *so to speak), its wrong, but if Fox and the GOP want to imply it all day long they can and it works yes it does.

    The funniest part of this controversy is whether we can dig up something from 30 years ago and use it against a candidate.... I seem to recall the Kerry campaign where this was done, and the Gore campaign too. And today we have Mrs. Thomas asking for an apology from Anita Hill, biggest story of the day - for the controversy of 20 years ago. Oh my! And how thiin skinned these Teabags are is incredible to me. Hate to remind you folks again, but just like that job interview we all have to go on where we hand in the resume and put ourselves out there for the employer to examine, the press is doing the same to these candidates. And we the people have the benefit of hte interview and can VOTE AGAINST THEM so they don't get the job. And if they won't answer questions now and what we do know is quite suspect, imagine how much fun they will be when they "legislate" with their remedial knowledge of the Constitution. People are always showing us exactly what they are, we only have to see it. OMG ..... save us all!!

    It sucks when the right uses Politics of Incitement, and it sucks equally hard when the left uses Politics Of Incitement.
