Rand Paul Rocks!

Hopefully he can rock through November:
Rand Paul arrived at his victory party on Tuesday night to the booming lyrics of the Rush song he often quoted on the campaign trail: “Glittering prizes and endless compromises/shatter the illusion of integrity.”

Mr. Paul, who won the Republican Senate nomination in Kentucky, likes to equate the prizes and compromises to earmarks and backroom deals in Washington, which he says have to end.

Paul has some good taste in music and that song in particular, though it relates to the music industry, can be applied elsewhere and if done with government we will all be better for it.

Excerpt from The Spirit of Radio by Rush:

All this machinery making modern music
can still be open-hearted, not so coldly charted
it's really just a question of your honesty.

One likes to believe in the freedom of music
but glittering prizes and endless compromises
shatter the illusion of integrity.
