#MakeDCListen on twitter now

Levin is following the filibuster, Sen Cruz has an aide twitting key phrases.

God’s speed Senator Ted Cruz, God’s speed.

He’s trying to save the country and it’s too bad the RINO party doesn’t stand with him.

Cruz is on a roll.

Representing 6 million Texans, unlike Cornyn.

I wonder which senators will show up for support.

Linda Graham, Juan McNut definitely not.

You got that right. I hope Cornyn's getting a flood of email.

Compared to the corruptocratican machine, he probably doesn’t have enough standwidth.

But it’s a noble try.

UPDATE: 2:48 p.m. “I intend to speak until I can no longer stand,” Cruz said in his opening remarks of his filibuster. Cruz was joined by his partner in his effort to defund Obamacare, Utah senator Mike Lee. Cruz has already played on the theme to “make DC listen” early on in his remarks and his Twitter account has started using the #MakeDCListen hashtag.

Cruz hammering Cornyn, not by name, but saying listen to your Constituents!

Cruz and his staff are being told be me and thousands of others that Cornyn isn't answering any of his lines at any of his offices.

As a constituent of his, I'm getting ready to send him one, been trying to tone it down before I do.

I'm thinking “Take a look on the Senate floor and educate yourself about being a MAN and being a PATRIOT.”

Anyone have a way to put this? Its sort of what I want to say.

Let’s all remember that David Dewhurst would not be doing this. We need to replace as many people as we can in the senate next year.

From Rinse Pre-Bus:

“In a fight between Harry Reid and Ted Cruz, I will stand with Ted Cruz any day.”

Yeah, right. Standing along with David Brooks, Rove, McConnell, McPain and Linda.

Good for Ted. He must have not listened to turncoat Cornyn to sit down and shut up.

I just wish he had a relief pitcher to hold the floor for him when he needs to rest. Some senator who reads this forum, show up and stand in. Please.
I remember the movie “Breaking Away”, where the main kid was a very good bike racer. All he needed to finish and win the 50 mile race around a stadium track, virtually at sprint speed, were three other bumpkins who could pedal in a straight line for just a lap or two.
Cruz is experiencing a Holy Spirit anointing to speak in compelling, diligent, printable prose, without notes.
Go, Ted!

I like it. I think I'll "borrow it" and send it along to add to the others I've sent him.

He’s on his own when filibustering, until he cannot stand or speak any more. On the positive side, he takes the credit for bringing his cause to the forefront for the American people.

I just wish he had Reed (sick!) to hold a relief pitcher to empty his bladder as the occasion arises.

But, alas, Hairy (again, Sicko!) is not worthy of such an honor.

So...
How do we get to see how many empty seats are in the chamber?

I think I’ll call my two Georgia senators and ask where they are today.
