The media is being accused of asking "gotcha questions" of Rand Paul. What exactly are they?
A "gotcha question" is a question that the interviewer knows his subject won't want to answer because the answer will make the subject look stupid (Palin), vile (Paul), a liar (Leiberman) or all of the above (Bush Jr.). In other words, a "gotcha question" is what used to be known as A TOUGH QUESTION.
Stupid vile liars hate tough questions. That is why Fox News was invented.
