Filibusters: For Weenies or Winners?March 8, 2013
Senator Rand Paul totally pulled a punk move in Congress today, conducting an almost 13-hour filibuster as a way to bring attention to Obama’s authority to kill Americans with drones. So fucking RAD, man! Now, I’ve always HATED filibusters, thinking it to be the equivalent of a player faking an injury in soccer to get a time out or free kick. But many have defended the filibuster, saying it’s integral to our Congress as a way to protect minority viewpoints. The bottom line is, this week, Rand Paul proved how freaking awesome filibusters can be. At least in my eyes. How about in yours? This week, let’s talk FILIBLIZZARD!
