PAUL: I think this sort of bully demeanor may go over well in certain places. But I can’t imagine that — I grew up in the South. And we’re, yes, ma’am, and, no, sir, and a little bit more polite. So, I don’t think that — I think people want someone to be bold. And there was a time when I thought, you know what? When he stands up and he says things boldly, that’s kind of good. He’s not taking any flak. But there can be [too] much of that too. We live in a world where we have so much cacophony of voices on TV sometimes of yelling back and forth. And I think there’s a resurgence of people who want a little more civility and discourse.

Via A civility matchup: Christie’s “Sit down and shut up” versus Rand Paul’s “The Republican brand sucks.” @ Althouse
