'Aqua Buddha' Takes Center Stage at Rand Paul Debate

Rand Paul in the Senate would mean, for the first time in a long time, someone would be in the Senate who truly understands economics and liberty. So what does his opponent focus on and twist?

Rand's college hijinks.  The Lexington Herald-Leader explains:

A debate filled with unabashed personal attacks concluded Sunday night with Republican Rand Paul briskly brushing past Democrat Jack Conway, refusing to shake the hand of an opponent who raised questions about his religious beliefs.

"Jack, have you no decency? Have you no shame?" Paul asked Conway during the fourth of five scheduled debates between Kentucky's U.S. Senate candidates.

Paul said Conway's actions were "a disgrace" that should disqualify Conway from the heated contest Kentuckians will decide Nov. 2.

Paul's initial comments in the debate focused on a Conway TV ad that began airing over the weekend that says that while in college at Baylor University, Paul was in a secret brotherhood that mocked Christianity. It also alleged that he tied up a woman while in college and forced her to bow down to a god named "Aqua Buddha."..

The ad has caused the race to descend "into the gutter," said Paul, who described himself as "a pro-life Christian." He recited biblical Scripture from the Book of Mark, asking Conway what does it profit a man to gain the world if he loses his soul?
