It’s official, he’s out. What is it with Tea Party politicians and quitting?

“It is a big deal when somebody cancels an appearance…” – Executive Producer Betsy Fischer

Rand Paul is only the third person in the show’s history to do so. He’s now in the company of Louis Farrakhan and Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia.

Evidently, Paul called Fisher to say he was sorry, but is “exhausted.” Considering he made the commitment on Wednesday, you’d think he’d have prepared for it by not going on TV non-stop.

Unfortunately, Rachel Maddow blew that plan out of the water, so that Paul felt forced to do damage control all week.

If you can’t stand the new mega media world, how are you going to deal with terrorists? Hmmmmm?
