George Will Calls Rand Paul Frivolous

George Will calls Rand Paul "frivolous." Will said Paul doesn't understand that he's running for a Senate seat. He also said morality can be legislated, which was good to hear.
The people who supported Paul will continue to support him. But will the independent voters vote for him in the general election? It seems to me Americans are so frustrated with politicians that they're grasping at straws.
Cokie Roberts has it right, voters aren't anti-Washington, anti-democrat, anti-republican, or anti-Obama. They're looking for non-phonies, even if they're wacky, or ordinary, or in Sarah Palin's case, wacky, ordinary and ignorant.
Also, if the democrats were smart, they'd find a replacement for Richard Blumenthal, the Connecticut Attorney General running for Senate. Is the pool so shallow that democrats can't even find someone with a bit of integrity?
