Does it reveal me as a political nerd insider if I get motivated about Senator Rand Paul hitting the filibuster hard? First real filibuster we’ve had in a decade? A filibuster that is actually bipartisan, and unites both left and right?
Don’t care if it does reveal me as such. This may be politics at its most arcane, but it’s also brutally honest… and frighteningly revealing. Played well–as I’d argue Paul is playing this–a filibuster can be a goddamned halogen light on injustices. I am absolutely thrilled he’s stepping up in this manner. And I won’t even dare speak what my hope is going forward after this.Share
