The Republicans are putting out two rebuttals to the State of the Union address:
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul will deliver the tea party response, the group Tea Party Express announced Friday. That will put him head-to-head against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who GOP leaders announced earlier this week will give the party’s official response on Tuesday.
As if Marco Rubio isn’t Tea Party enough — and in case the Tea Party folk get confused when Mr. Rubio panders to the Hispanics by doing his spiel en español — they’re throwing in the loopy white guy just to make sure.
The way the Republicans are going these days, it’s hard to tell if Sen. Paul is going to rebut Marco Rubio, Barack Obama, or just yell at the clouds.
