Rush Enters American Political Discourse (And I'm Not Talking About Limbaugh)

Senate candidate and Tea Party wingnut Rand Paul of Kentucky has taken to quoting the band Rush in his campaign speeches:

He quotes Thomas Paine as well as the rock band Rush: “Glittering prizes and endless compromises shatter the illusion of integrity.” 

Does he also use tree metaphors? 

Really, I'm kind of rooting for Paul to win the Republican primary because a) Trey Grayson could be scary on a national stage and b) the Democrats would have a good chance to take the seat against Paul. But this is making me rethink my wishes.
