Principled libertarian edition:

Rand Paul, asked whether he would sign a federal marriage amendment: "I'm in favor of the concept. I am in favor of traditional marriage."

I wonder if there are any politicians calling themselves libertarians who would be willing to 86 their hostility to taxes and regulations or Obamacare in order to pander to the Democratic base to achieve higher office? I didn't think so. It's pretty clear what they really care about. And civil liberties and anti-imperialism aren't at the top of their list.
