Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

ISIS has beheaded Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist to be beheaded at the hands of the radical Islamist group that claims to have established a caliphate in northeast Syria and northwest Iraq. Briton David Haines, a private security expert, has been held up as the next to die.

The Washington Post reports, unsurprisingly, that Republican voters are becoming more hawkish. No surprise there.

Rick Santorum has sent three tweets, as I write, on the news of Sotloff’s beheading by ISIS.

I’m still reeling a bit over the idea that Karl Rove, et al, might think it’s a good idea to take a dump on the conservative base of the Republican Party, so I’m trying to hold my tongue here, for charity’s sake. Let me just respond to this tidbit from GOP, Incorporated, via Politico:

Women are “barely receptive” to Republicans’ policies, and the party does “especially poorly” with women in the Northeast and Midwest, according to an internal Crossroads GPS and American Action Network report obtained by POLITICO.

Balderdash. Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney in Colorado, Missouri AND Minnesota. Try again, Karl. If Rick Santorum had won in Wisconsin, there’s a good chance he would have been our nominee. Unfortunately for Santorum, Paul Ryan endorsed Romney who (coincidentally?) later picked him to be his VP running mate. The Ryan endorsement put Romney over the top in Wisconsin, which left Santorum with no clear path to the nomination.

It is precisely because the Republican Party keeps pushing candidates who can’t win the general election (moderates) that Democrats continue to be elected. Wealthy, big city liberals are running America into the ground and have control in both parties. It’s time to let “fly-over” country have her day. The election isn’t going to be about “Republican vs Democrat.” It’s going to be about “right vs wrong.” If the DC Establishment wins or if the Democrats win, “wrong” wins.

Some of you may not yet have heard that Kentucky law prohibits candidates from running in two races simultaneously. Because Rand Paul is up for re-election in 2016, he will have to choose between running for president in 2016 and running for re-election to the Senate. According to a new poll, two-thirds of Kentuckians are opposed to changing that law.

Kentucky.com:

Two-thirds of respondents did agree on one thing about the senator: They do not support changing Kentucky law to allow Paul to run for president and his Senate seat simultaneously in 2016.

As I understand it, Rand Paul legally can:

(1) Run for re-election to the Senate here, without his name on Kentucky’s ballot for President, but put his name on the ballot for President in other states,

or

(2) Sacrifice his Senate seat to run for president.

That would be legal.

The problem for Rand Paul politically is that the first option is a bit too much of an intricacy in the law for most people to know much about off the top of their heads. There is no way to fully predict how voters would react once it sinks in, if he picks that first option, but it’s an easy guess that Kentuckians wouldn’t take kindly to it.

The poll shows his favorable rating here in Kentucky is 7 points higher than his unfavorable rating. It’s not bad, but it’s nothing to brag about, either. I seriously doubt that people would go to the polls here to vote to re-elect him to the U.S. Senate if he were running for president in the other 49 states. He would most likely lose that election, particularly considering that he would have to remain focused on his presidential race in other states. He wouldn’t have time to campaign here and it would be an easy win in this state for a primary opponent or, in the absence of a primary opponent, the Democratic opponent in the general election.

Is Rand Paul willing to forfeit both Kentucky’s electoral votes in the presidential election and the Senate seat, to the Democrats, just to obtain more power for himself? My guess is, yes. He’s that arrogant.

Just a guess, mind you.
