Two lessons to be learned from the Rand Paul attack:

1. Police your yard clippings.

2. Good fences make for good neighbors.

Seems to me the person you claim has low T is the one that delivered the ass whooping.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

My grandmother could administer an ass whooping if she snuck up on someone from behind.
Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

First of all, I don't think Rand Paul (or any other U.S. Senator) is necessarily the toughest, most physical dude on the planet, his political affiliation notwithstanding. Second, if a "liberal" attacks him from behind and breaks five of his ribs, how is that some kind of confirmation that liberals are really manly men? Even a blind squirrel...

You (like many others) have a belief that a fight is supposed to be fair. Like Marquis of Queensbury rules stuff.

That's not how it's done if one wants to win.

Or at least as much as Rand's attacker.

If it's supposed to provide evidence of strength and toughness, then yes, it should be fair.

But hey, if a sneak attack from behind is all you have to hang your hat on when it comes to manliness, go for it

So I just finished watching a Netflix docu-series about the British SAS. They detailed how they performed several operations in the last 40+ years. One common thread. Never did they tell the enemy when or where they were going to attack.

I guess they aren't very manly either.

I highly recommend the series. The commentary by several former SAS troops was fascinating in how they look back at their time in the "Regiment" and how it affected their lives after leaving the service.

One of the troops interviewed participated in the Battle of Mirbat. 9 SAS troops took on and defeated over 300 militants in Oman.

Best line;

"They made a huge mistake. They didn't bring enough men."

Delivered with the usual British understatement and aplomb.

Not following what Rand Paul has to do with your Trump picket fence analogy.
