    Paul really impressed, as did Cruz and Lee.

    Eric Holder believes that under "extenuating circumstances", drone strikes should be used against US Citizens. What these circumstances are, is unknown. I'm fine with them using unarmed UAV's for tedious roles like border patrol, but drone strikes are out of the question. They may as well be launching F-15 and AH-64 strikes against the citizenry. There is no scenario in my mind that justifies that type of military force against the populace.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It was an interesting grandstand that brought rand's name back into the spotlight and fired up his base. Still, in the end this was just a huge distraction from the many problems that face the country, and even he did not believe in the reason he was doing it. The confirmation as going to happen anyway, by his own admission, and though the thing about drone strikes on US citizens on US soil was an interesting topic, it was a distraction from the job at hand, and he did not even get the senate to vote on that specific issue. So rand blathered on for many hours doing nothing, saying random stuff, and proving he is ineffective at actually getting something done despite working really hard at it because even he admits he was going the wrong direction. Even the republicans and conservatives could see a reason the US might have to act in immediacy with drones to save lives. At least they weren't doing anything useful anyway. I guess it is official that rand is going to take up his father's mantle of failed presidential runs in the future and we will have a paul to kick around for the immediate future. The hipsters and pseudo libertarians will be so happy. It is really bad when you are a right wing flunkie and the republicans won't goosestep with you when you are attacking obama.

    This all seems so stupid as they would have wasted those hours anyway. they didn't need to highlight it all with some pointless grandstanding to spotlight their lack of accomplishment.
