Is Rand Paul Single?

I never was able to work up the sort of affection for Rand Paul that I felt for his irascible but endearing dad, who bravely and repeatedly bucked his lockstep authoritarian party during the Bush years, but today I might have changed my mind.  It seems that the curly-headed Medicare freeloader lately of Kentucky has [...]
