On radio Monday, Glenn spent a few minutes contemplating out loud whether or not Senator Rand Paul has a chance of lasting much longer in the presidential race. While maintaining he likes Senator Paul and supports his run, Glenn told radio listeners he thinks the candidate has made two critical errors.
"I think he first got into bed with Mitch McConnell," Glenn said. "I think that's his biggest problem. I don't think anybody has really recovered from that."
The second thing, Glenn said, is how he came across to many people as "too angry" during the debates.
"I didn't think he came off as angry. A lot of people did," Glenn said. "But I am thinking that now, the way he's attacking Ted Cruz. What are you doing, man? Stop it. Stop it."

GLENN: I think Rand Paul is done.
PAT: I think so too. He is for me.
GLENN: I think he's done -- I don't know what happened --
PAT: I vacillated so wildly on him.
STU: Yes, you have.
PAT: But he attacked Cruz again.
GLENN: I know. This is really bothering me. I don't know what's happened to him. I don't know what's happened to him. But he's like -- what are you doing? Why are you shooting -- why are you shooting a guy who is part of the Freedom people? Why are you doing that? There's no other targets?
PAT: You know why he's doing it? I mean, it's pretty obvious. He considers Ted Cruz his biggest threat because Ted Cruz almost beat him at the Libertarian thing they just had over the weekend.
GLENN: I don't understand. Do I have this right? Because I saw that Rand Paul got 57 percent.
PAT: Yeah, and he got 51. I didn't understand that.
GLENN: Okay. That's doesn't work. Yeah, the math doesn't really work out. Like the third guy has 19 percent.
PAT: Your first or second choice, is that what it is?
STU: Maybe, yeah.
PAT: It might have been your first and second choices. So, anyway, Rand Paul got 57. Ted Cruz was second at 51 percent.
GLENN: That's enormous. This was a Libertarian poll.
GLENN: That happened over the weekend. This was the big Libertarian conference that happened. And for Ted Cruz to come within six --
PAT: Anywhere near him.
GLENN: Within six points of Rand Paul is phenomenal.
PAT: Huge. So I think that's troubling to him, and that's probably why he's lashing out at Ted Cruz.
GLENN: I think this is trouble. And I like Rand and I support Rand and I support his run. But I think he's made two critical errors. I think he first got into bed with Mitch McConnell.
PAT: That was huge too.
GLENN: I think the story would have been entirely different had he not gotten into bed with Mitch McConnell.
STU: Yeah, I agree.
GLENN: So I think that's his biggest problem. I don't think anybody has really recovered from that. Because you're just like, I don't know who he is. And the second is, people thought he was too angry during the debates. I didn't think he came off as angry. A lot of people did. But I am thinking that now, the way he's attacking Ted Cruz. What are you doing, man? Stop it. Stop it.
STU: Because I want to believe in both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and Bobby Jindal and all these guys, that if -- they don't see it as them. They see it as a bigger thing.
STU: I want Rand Paul to think, "If I can't win, I want Ted Cruz."
GLENN: Yes. But I don't think he does.
STU: And I want Ted Cruz to think the same.
GLENN: I don't think he does. And that's exactly what I want. I want the guys who I like, I want them all not to turn on each other. They can talk about the facts, but don't turn on each other. And then just say, "Look, if it's not me, that guy. I'll serve in the cabinet of that guy. I'll serve that guy. I don't care who it is." We all have to be on the same page. Because the enemies here in our own party are the big government progressives.
STU: Yeah, I want someone who is big enough of a person to, like, if they completely screw up More-On Trivia and criticize the commissioner and then are proven completely wrong when the football game is played, I want that person to step up and say what a disaster --
JEFFY: Thank you. Thank you.
GLENN: Pat, you should do that.
PAT: What happened with that, by the way? Was it right?
GLENN: It was right. We were right. We were sitting here saying to you, you know what I mean? Right, Stu?
PAT: No, I don't know what you mean.
JEFFY: What happened was --
GLENN: Let me tell you something, Jeffy said he wanted an apology from me this morning because I called him a fat bastard. And I want you to know, Jeffy, and I mean this in all sincerity, you being a fat bastard has nothing to do with you being commissioner of More-On Trivia. You will always be a fat bastard to me.
PAT: That's beautiful.
STU: That's nice.
