As Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Pauls filibuster of the nomination of John Brennan to be CIA director wound late into the night, he got the support of one unlikely media personality: Comedy Central The Daily Show host Jon Stewart.
Holy Howard Roarks ghost it looks like we got us a good old fashion actual talkie filibuster, Stewart said. The kind our grandparents tried to tell us about but never got through, because we were too busy playing jacks and tiddlywinks with our friends waiting for our turn to freebase in the shed. Ah, the 70s or 50s, or whatever timeframe I appear to be.
Rand Paul had sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking just a simple question: Can the president use a drone to take out an American citizen on U.S. soil? Stewart continued.

That was some strong support too.
Meanwhile at the DUmp they are mocking Paul for his concern over citizens and fretting over entitlements for illegal aliens.
I’m not surprised by this. Now if it had been Bill Maher, I would have fallen out of my chair.
I don’t believe this even if he said words to that effect.
I believe it. Unlike most liberal comedians, Stewart is not afraid to tear obama a new one.
If the demorats would hang Harry Reid Mussolini-style, I’d be impressed. Maybe.
Those idiots at DU combined don’t have an IQ above 10..I was shocked to see Van Jones defend Rand Paul..you know things are bad for Obama when Code Pink, the ACLU and Van Jones are all saying NO to drones
These folks have always opposed the use of drones, after all, drones would be an economical and practical way to defend a border and take out drug smugglers.
Roark would have taken the building down with dynamite.
One of my leftist friends posted this:
“You know that band that has always sucked, but you hate to admit you like one of their songs? That was Rand Paul today.”
That sums up Ron Wyden’s performance yesterday.
Agreed. Broken clock. Have we become so desperate,and delusional when a hip little Leftist throws us a bone? FUJS. Tomorrow he will tell us Cruz is a Nazi. Lol.
So true. You are so accurate. I wonder if JS knows his remarks are not being bought by real conservatives’ but rather his usual audience of no brain low information voters. Kind of a let down Jon to realize you mean nothing. And, of course, there is always the PR angle and Obama’s so called organization sent out for mind control. Need more ratings, eh Jon?
Maybe but according to their bible he answers to party first.
Same group of people that grasp at Rino straws like Rubio,Romney,Hannity, etc. Party people just waving therePom-Poms for the home team. Viva Ted Cruz!! Looking like the real deal. So far. :)
Problem with drug smugglers is that it's far from clear that they can be found and targeted faster than they're replaced - our War on Drugs leads to huge economic incentives to smuggle drugs.
