Columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks stopped by The Rundown again on Friday to discuss Kentucky’s new — and newly controversial — Republican Party Senate nominee Rand Paul, the strength of the tea party movement, how libertarians view the world and the potential challenges facing the GOP.
You can watch Paul’s appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show here, which helped thrust him into the national spotlight for his views on the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
And on a different note, regular Rundown viewers are likely familiar that Shields and Brooks are sports lovers — we have talked college basketball, but it turns out the guys are also big baseball fans. They talked about the Brooks family possibly fielding a team and and the hype surrounding the impending arrival of pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg in Washington to play for the Nationals. Take a look.
