This is the time we live in. Here's actor Vince Vaughn chatting with Ron and Rand Paul before introducing the senior Paul at the Liberty Political Action Conference in Reno, Nevada.
Bob Costa got Andrew Breitbart on the record, seeing great and meaningful things about Hollywood and conservative politics coming from the Vaughn endorsement. The presence of Rand really emphasizes that, because Rand is a more well-defined conservative figure, less of a counterculture pol than his father is. Ron's 2012 bid is still seen as a libertarian icon's last Big Statement; a possible Rand Paul presidential campaign would be seen as more of a credible effort to win the GOP nomination.
