  •  Okay. Hell has frozen over. (16+ / 0-)

    Because I have to actually commend -- there, I said it -- Senator Rand Paul on this for a couple of reasons.

    Geez.  I can't believe I'm typing this!

    But, Paul is dead on correct about the drone policy.  I may disagree with him on EVERYTHING ELSE IN LIFE, but this, we can agree.  Now I do question his motivation for doing this, but right is right.  Americans by and large are NOT the t-people here and we should not be treated as such.  Secondly, Congress should have to approve of drone actions.

    Just because Bush/Chency did this doesn't mean it was right and that it should be continued under Obama or any future President.

    Second, I have to say, this was a fffing brilliant move on Paul's part to actually do a talking filibuster:

    1.  He for one, is actually being shown as doing his fffing job in Congress;

    2.  He puts egg on the face of Harry Reid who agreed to the UTTERLY RIDICULOUS filibuster rules, since the GOP has already started to abuse them by once again, blocking needed federal judge appointments;

    3.  He just threw McCain and McTurtle under the bus by forcing them to actually remember what their jobs are actually about.

    So kudos to him.  That's all progressive radio has been talking about today.
