If you're enjoying Rand Paul's filibuster of the Brennan nomination, you will find some similar but less intense enjoyment in my piece on the speech. In short: Democrats wanted to reform the filibuster. Had they succeeded, instead of casting 41 votes against cloture and walking away, opponents of a bill or nomination would have to stand and talk. Does the media twitterpation over Rand Paul's speech prove that they were on to something?
