the truly hardcore get catheterized and have a pee tube and bag taped to their leg.

I think Strom Thurmon holds the time record, something like 30 hours, set back in 1955, or something —his filibuster was truly amazing, though a couple of our guys also have put in good performances.

Need good shoes, and I think some kind of stealthy leg-brace inside the pants would be good —not sure if it’s allowed, though.

usually when the GOPe is a majority the Democrat says “I filibuster” and the GOPe gives up. They never have to actual do any filibustering when the GOPe is running the place.

Let’s send up prayers. Just in case he has to go it alone, that the Lord grant him the endurance.

Amen.

The CNN newsblondes are smearing Cruz as a “political opportunist trying to make a name for himself, because nobody likes him”.

Looks like Ted won't get a date with these cheerleaders. I'm sure he's crushed.

In opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957, Strom Thurmond conducted the longest filibuster ever by a lone senator, at 24 hours and 18 minutes in length, nonstop.

He isn’t technically filibustering as he isn’t holding up any votes.

I certainly hope he prepared well

It is easy to see how Ted was a national debating champion.

He is brilliant on his feet....

Ted needs our prayers.

That's a good way of putting it.

It tried to teach my dog to roll over by saying "roll over!" I think I'll try saying "filibuster" and see what happens.

Law of the land they say.

Prohibition was the law of the land, too. Nobody told anyone to give up on repealing it because it was the law.

Best answer ever. If anybody tried to say he was just spewing bullcrap they would be exactly right. lol

Ted, I am praying for your strength, for somebody to take the role of Aaron and hold up your hands when they get tired so the battle can be won, and in thanksgiving that you understand what we’re fighting for and still believe we’re worth fighting for. If there was any way for me to be Samwise Gamgee and carry you when you’re exhausted, to the Crack of Doom to dispose of the ring, I’d be there in a heartbeat. I’m there in prayers and in spirit.
