And it seems to go rather well:
Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.”
This is a smart move by Paul. Get in there and state the things that would have an appeal to your audience, even if it’s a hostile audience. Libertarians have a message with an inherent attractiveness to the young, of course. Get in there and tell them who you are before the press tells them who you are.
Of course, the press reaches more people. But still—
And I’ve just noticed that most of my posts today have something to do with press coverage. Hmmm.
