Saint Patrick and Rand Paul

I am happy to remember Patrick Moynihan, particularly so on this tenth anniversary of "boots on the ground" in Afghanistan and Iraq. On his deathbed at the time, when told of the rush to invade Moynihan told his daughter Maura, "It's a ten day war and a ten year occupation, and then what are you going to do with it?"

That, and he's possibly the last person who said anything about the black family that made sense.

RIP Saint Patrick. I wish that we had you on Drones, privacy, and civil liberties instead of Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell.
