Rand Paul, in an interview with a Kentucky TV station.

"I'm not the kind that when I walk down the aisle at the grocery store shakes hands with everybody.

It's not that I don't like everybody, it's just not who I am necessarily."

A bit later, he calls himself a "happy rebel". Reagan was frequently called a "happy warrior".
