    For the first time in years we are seeing an old fashioned filibuster on the Senate floor! Well done Senator Paul!

    Three cheers for Senator Paul. Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to have Senator Paul defeated in the Republican Primary.

    Kentucky has at least one Senator of which to be proud. And as a former Kentuckian I am proud.

    Now if Ashley just runs?:smilewinkgrin:

    How can anybody be proud of a fool like Rand Paul! It's true that the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Megan Kelly just read a letter to Senator Paul from AG Holder in which Holder stated that the Administration would not use drone strikes in this country! So the filibuster must be considered a success and the OLD Guard Republicans are sadly mistaken!

    Well, of course McCain and Graham would criticize Paul--they're two of the biggest warmongers in the senate. I'm sure neither would object in principle to the US Govt using drones on whomever was deemed an 'enemy of the state'.
