I could be wrong, but I think this is the first time I've heard a mainstream media type acknowledge that Rand Paul is full of crap. In a discussion of which Republicans might possibly vote against Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, Scarborough wrote off Rand Paul as someone worth believing.

He was discussing the fact that Roe v. Wade has higher public support than ever with Jim Vandehei.
