In an interview on Friday, Wall Street Journal Editorial board member Dorothy Rabinowitz sharply criticized Rand Paul over his wishy-washy stance on drones, saying,
What he’s for is himself and his changes in the presidential sweepstake. But if you roll back the tape to that filibuster, that extraordinary performance where he is Mr. Smith goes to Washington ‘I’m just a poor boy chewin’ my Snickers bar here,’ and remember that he draped himself in the Constitution and he kept presenting this utterly false picture of people being cut down by their swimming pools by American drones. Can this happen? None of this could conceivably ever happen. But it’s that slippery slope that people like Rand Paul in their liberationist, anti-government frenzy like to paint.
