    The big news of the day seems to be the aftermath of the filibuster held for 13 hours by Senator Rand Paul. He should need no introduction, as his father is former Representative Ron Paul. He shares some of his father's extreme libertarian ideology, but not all. If nothing else, it seems he is more than willing to ask the questions of government that many of our politicians are not willing to ask. That's why he began the old-school talking filibuster in the first place. He asked a question of Attorney General Eric Holder and not being satisfied with Holder's...

    The anti-Rand Pauls, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, took to the Senate floor this morning to defend killing American citizens at presidential discretion.

    Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster didn’t thrill all of his colleagues. Almost exactly 24 hours after the Kentucky freshman began his information-seeking filibuster against CIA nominee John O. Brennan, fellow Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham took to the Senate floor to denounce his demands and say he was doing a “disservice” to the debate on drones. “I don’t think what happened yesterday was helpful to the American people,” said Mr. McCain, Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2008 — who topped Mr. Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, in that year’s primary. And where even Democrats praised Mr. Paul for using...
  • Now John McCain goes to the floor and slams Rand Paul’s filibuster as ‘not helpful’, ‘ridiculous’

    Why don’t John McCain and Lindsey Graham just get a room or something. As soon as I heard that Lindsey Graham didn’t like filibuster, I knew that McCain would be soon to follow with the same garbage. Just like clockwork:
