Rand Paul-Rush Update

More

You want answers? I have answers.

If you've been following the Rand Paul-Rush contretemps, most recently covered in my confessional/apologetic weekend post—and especially if you read/participated in the robust "comments" discussion, which was truly fun and illuminating—then you're aware that the Kentucky Senate candidate's favorite band dissed him in a major way (through a lawyer!), that I may or may not be responsible, and that a number of questions have been raised about why Rush responded as it did. Specifically, they've been raised by commenters, who not only raised them, but encouraged me to pick up the damn phone and find out the answers instead of just wallowing in navel-gazing adolescent nostalgia.

Well, I heard you. And I've made the calls. And I've asked the questions raised in the comment stream. At least, I've asked them of Rush's lawyer—I have not yet heard back from the Paul campaign. In any event, all sorts of interesting things to report. But not quite yet. I've got a column deadline looming, and for once in my life I've vowed not to blow it. (Could happen.) As soon as it's filed, I'll transcribe the interview and post it. Consider this a placeholder.

For now, one interesting tidbit: Rush is touring the U.S. this summer/fall—but they won't be playing Kentucky.
