On Wednesday we got to witness one of the unique gems of our political system, a filibuster in the U.S. Senate! Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke for nearly 13 straight hours, delaying the confirmation vote to appoint John Brennan as the new head of the CIA. The issue which turned the hash-tag #standwithrand into all the rage on Twitter was the policies of Barack Obama on the use of domestic drones. Specifically, can drone strikes be carried out within the borders of the United States against potential terrorists? The White House and other administration heads, like Eric Holder, have been ambiguous as to whether such actions are unconstitutional? The junior Kentucky Republican senator had a few allies helping him out during his filibuster, including Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and even one Democrat, Ron Wyden (D-OR). But none of the ′Old Guard′, like Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, participated, opting instead to attend a dinner with Obama.
