The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Although the DSCC is not always the most careful reader, it seems

Rarely has Didier tweeted in recent days about his trip to Washington, D.C., without the DSCC taking note, and sending copies to its long list of media outlets. This afternoon, Didier tweeted, and the DSCC repeated:

“Just met with Ron Paul. What an inspirational leader! Makes me want to fight harder for Liberty! Pics to come.”

When the DSCC sent out its e-mail, however, the described it as a meeting with Rand Paul.

Note to the Democrats: Ron Paul is the congressman from Texas who ran for president in 2008 in the Republican primaries. Rand Paul is his son, running for Senate this year in Kentucky, who recently won the Republican primary. They do look a little bit alike, but Ron is, not surprisingly, considerably older. And is more likely to be in Washington, D.C. these days.
