Guess Who's Coming to Howard

You may have heard that Rand Paul went to Howard University and tried to lecture the student body on the history of the Republican party, trying to understand how it is that the party that freed the slaves, gave blacks the vote, and elected the first black senator and representatives lost the black vote. Of course, since for Paul, this history sort of stopped in the 1950s, while the students at Howard are a bit more up-to-date, it didn't go all that well.

Jon Stewart recaps: “A Republican freed the slaves, gave black people the vote, yada yada yada, and now all blacks vote Democratic, I mean, what the hell?”

Watch it here (I'd embed it, but they don't give the "old" embed code like You Tube does...)

Stewart sounds downright charitable toward Rand, compared to the number Milbank did on him!
