Elements of truth...

Rand Paul roasts...

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)...

At Wednesday night's Congressional Correspondents' Dinner, the Republican senator from Kentucky roasted some of his own.

"I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war; a position or two, or maybe three," Paul said. "I don't know. He may have more war positions than he's had wives."

The son of GOP firebrand and Tea Party favorite Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), Rand The Younger not only BBQ'd the former speaker, he also let loose on the GOP's beloved media outlet, Fox News. In particular, he slammed the network's commentaries about President Barack Obama's decision to put U.S. military forces to work in Libya.

"There's a big debate going on over at Fox News. It's really messed up, I mean they don't know what to do," Paul said. "They just really can't decide over at Fox News. It's like, what do they love more, bombing the Middle East or bashing the president? It's like, I was over there and there was an anchor going -- they were pleading, they were pleading -- 'please, please, please, can't we do both? Can't we bomb the Middle East and bash the president at the same time? How are we going to make this work?'"

Regardless of which side of the aisle you sit on, ya gotta love this stuff...I guess unless you're Gingrich or Fox.
