Maybe KY Repugs Want to Get Rid of AynRandy

There is a deep bench of hate-filled, freakazoid morons in the state GOP just slavering for a chance at the Tribble-Toupeed One's U.S. Senate seat.
So why should the party save Paul's selfish, cheating ass by letting him run for both Senate and the presidential nomination at the same time?

After all, the reason Paul doesn't want to give up his Senate candidacy is because he's a coward who worries that maybe repug primary voters won't think he's all that and a bag of chips.
Staying on the ballot for Senator is the only hope he has of still having a government job in January 2017.

Steve Benen at Maddowblog:
On the one hand, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is a stickler for the rules and legal limits. "We can't be for the rule of law at our own convenience," the senator has said.
On the other hand, laws sometimes get in Rand Paul's way.
Requesting help to avoid a "costly and time-consuming legal challenge," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is asking members of the Republican Party of Kentucky to create a presidential caucus in 2016 that would happen well ahead of the May primary election.
In a letter dated Feb. 9, Paul told GOP leaders that an earlier presidential preference vote would give Kentuckians "more leverage to be relevant" in the wide-open competition for the Republican presidential nomination.
But as the senator conceded, the goal here is not solely about improving Kentucky's "relevance"; this is about helping him advance his personal ambitions.
