How to Attack a Republican From the Right

Dave Weigel points to the ad that a conservative PAC is running against insurgent candidate Rand Paul in Kentucky:

The problem with Paul is that he is against farm subsidies, realizes that Iran having one nuke is bad, but not an existential threat to the US, and thinks coal is the worst energy source. All of which are, well, pretty much the consensus positions of experts on the issues. But that's how you attack someone from the right. Demagogue technocratic, well thought-out positions.

  1. The PAC that is running the ad, The American Future Fund, says it "advocates conservative, free market ideals" yet they strongly support taxpayer subsidies to agri-business.
