NSA Leaks and Rand Paul, Crunchy Con

On Friday I had the National Review’s Betsy Woodruff on my bloggingheads show, and, among other things, we talked about how the NSA leaks are pointing to an opportunity for Rand Paul. On the subject of Paul, I have a piece up at the Guardian today about his “crunchy” brand of conservatism, and what that means for his views on the role of government. (Spoiler: for Paul, the security/surveillance state is indistinguishable from a government that lawfully and reasonably regulates, say, the environment. Check it out.)
