FINALLY! Someone in Congress actually had the wherewithal to stand up and defend the Constitution of this country! I am ecstatic about the filibuster on the floor where Senator Rand Paul spoke out for thirteen hours against the nomination of John Brennan and demanded an answer from the President about drone attacks against American citizens.
This is what we have been yearning for. This is what we Americans have been waiting for someone to do. Without hesitation the Senator called out the Attorney General and the President and demanded answers. Why has it taken so long? Why has no one stepped forward and done this before? If they had, maybe our country wouldn't be hanging over a cliff by our fingernails.
The tiny hole in the dam was suddenly bursting wide open and the brave new world of the Republican Party was beginning. For the first time they weren't rolling over and caving, they were standing up and demanding answers. For once it wasn't the same old political rhetoric that we are all so sick of, it was new and bold.
It didn't take long however for the old guard to try and shoot the messenger. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham who were having a lovely dinner with our illustrious President came out pompous and angry. McCain slammed Paul calling the filibuster "ridiculous". He found it absurd that the President would even "think" of taking out Jane Fonda with a drone. Really? You better wake up Senator McCain, you have been in Washington way too long. Why are you not asking questions like this or asking why Homeland Security needs billions of bullets and tanks on American soil? McCain and Graham just bury their heads in the sand and assume that everyone in Washington will "play fair". Graham should know better, he is trying to get answers on Benghazi.
I think this might be the road to our salvation. Perhaps there was divine intervention keeping Senator Paul on his feet for so long the other night.
