Rand Paul shows another ugly side of his philosophies

As Daily Kos alerted us this morning, in "Rand Paul explains Republican economic philosophy," Senator-elect Paul, speaking to CNN, enunciated the essential Republican philosophy, in 30 terse seconds:
Rich people are the backbone of our economy because they are the only people who buy things and create jobs. Therefore we should cut their taxes and cut spending on everything else.
Yes, it will be unpleasant having to contend with a larger Republican share of the U.S. Senate, but the quotes out of their supposed "bright, young leaders," are going to be delicious foils for Democrats to oppose in the 2012 election. Quotes like this one and Paul's callous disregard for civil rights laws, will show the Republicans in the most unflattering light. Paul will be the poster boy for what is wrong, selfish, heartless in the Republican economic philosophy.
Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin are easily dismissible as light-headed; Paul will be dismissible as offering nothing to 85% of the American public.
