One year ago today, DC was hunkered down for what was supposed to be an early March blizzard. While the storm fizzled out turning into a non-event, Senator Rand Paul made history that day as America tuned in to C-SPAN2 to watch his old-school, talking filibuster in action.
Just before noon, Senator Paul took the floor saying, “I rise today to begin my filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination for the CIA. I will speak until I can no longer speak.” And
