It was hour seven of what was supposed to be a two-hour trip, and things were starting to get a little punchy on board the Rand Paul bus tour through Israel.

The luxury coach, which was carrying the Kentucky Senator and his entourage of family, staffers, and evangelical leaders from Jerusalem to a kibbutz in the Sea of Galilee, had been derailed by flash floods and rock slides in the West Bank. The group was hungry, tired, and cold, but everyone was doing their best to make the most of it.

‘How about a gospel tune?’ the tour guide suggested, trying to keep spirits up.

“Do we have ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’? The Guns N’ Roses version!” Paul called out. “C’mon! ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’!”

It took a few minutes for anyone to realize Paul was serious. Finally, the tour guide fiddled around with the sound system, and Paul’s request came blaring through the speakers.

“There we go!” Paul shouted to the rest of the bus, singing along. A few beats later, he called out again: “We need to change the name of this bus!”
