I'm beginning to get the feeling that saying that you're considering entertaining the idea of possibly exploring the concept of possibly considering making a run for president is just something that politicians say so that people will keep pointing cameras at them…
While in South Carolina promoting his book "The Tea Party Goes to Washington" on Monday, Rand Paul was asked about a possible presidential run…
"The only decision I've made is I won't run against my dad," Paul told the Post and Courier newspaper… "Come back and ask me in a few months."
And then ask me again after that. And then again later, please. Or, can you just maybe camp out in front of my house. With your cameras, don't forget your cameras. Definitely, definitely bring the cameras, okay?
Just so we're clear on this, you're gonna bring the cameras, right?

Sen. Rand Paul sat down with Jon Stewart yesterday to talk. And talk the two did until it was clear that The Daily Show's cup doth overflow with sweet libertarian interviewiness. So much so that it could not fit into one mere television segment.
So, here is the complete exclusive full length interview with Rand Paul…
Interview continues after the jump.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.

Good news, America! We took America back last night! Or did someone else take it back from us? Who knows. Friend-of-Indecision Baratunde Thurston definitely doesn't.

Anything can happen on live TV, and Jon and Stephen's Midterm Teapartyganza was no different. Who will ever forget Aasif Mandvi's nude report from Washington D.C.? Or John Oliver and Jason Jones repeatedly shouting "f**k the FCC" while suspended from that ceiling fan? Or Samantha Bee straight up murdering that dude?
None of that happened, of course, but what did happen were the following quotes about last night's Democratic mega-massacre. You should read them until your brain explodes from being amused.
"John Boehner will be the new Speaker of the House. It is the highest elected office ever to be reached by an Orange-American." – Olivia Munn

But, I'll tell you, it was really touch-and-go there for a minute.
