Here are a few gems uttered by the one, the only (thankfully) Rand Paul at at the Liberty Political Action Conference in Virginia.
CHANTILLY, Va. -- Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said on Thursday that Republicans have been “winning” recent Washington battles and laid out a roadmap for how the party can use the victories to appeal to key voting blocks that fueled President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election. [...]
And by winning Washington battles, he's referring to the GOP civil war that's tearing his party apart.
“Who is probably the least likely to protect your privacy among Democrats? Hillary Clinton,” Paul added. (He did not specify why he thought the former secretary of state would be so vulnerable on this issue.) [...]
On Thursday, Paul said making it an issue for Republicans to campaign on can help win over another demographic that Obama dominated in 2012 – African Americans.

But here's the money quote:
Does anybody remember Charlie Sheen when he was kind of going crazy… And he was going around, jumping around saying, "Winning, winning, we’re winning." Well I kind of feel like that, we are winning. And I’m not on any drugs.
Yes, Rand Paul thought it was a good idea to compare the GOP to Charlie Sheen... the cringe-worthy, wackadoodle guy on drugs who was losing.
And Paul wants American voters to trust him to be their next president. Good luck with that, genius. And thank you for playing:
