The CIA may probe Rand Paul’s bladder

If God had meant politicians to filibuster, He would have created bigger bladders for them.

Just ask Rand Paul, who filibustered against John Brennan being confirmed as CIA czar for 13 hours until he had to quit at 12:39 a.m. this morning because his eye teeth were floating and his eyes were more yellow than Jersey corn.

When you gotta go, there’s no holding back that tsunami.

Paul, like all zealots ablaze with missionary zeal, works a cause the way Stradivarius worked spruce and maple.

Hell, Paul even considered using a catheter to prevent the necessary bathroom break.

Now that’s being committed enough to be, uh, committed.

By the way, it was all for naught because the Senate confirmed Brennan today.

However, you could say that Paul didn’t wind up, ahem, pissing in the wind.

The purpose of his filibuster was to draw attention to the Obama administration’s use of drones.

Attorney general Eric Holder told Paul today in a letter (what? no email, text or tweet?) that drones would not be used on U.S. soil.

Saving face if not his bruised bladder, Paul insisted the filibuster was worth it to get that letter.

His bladder was unavailable for comment.

    I don’t get how you call it saving face if he got the answer he wanted after all was said and done.

  2. He got the letter but Brennan still was confirmed.

  3. Murray says:

    It was clear that he was not trying to stop Brennan’s confirmation. He said so repeatedly during the filibuster, which you evidently did not watch or listen to. The filibuster was all about the lack of an answer on the part of the Administration to the question of the authority to target people with drones on American soil. The filibuster was on Wednesday and he got the answer he wanted in the form of a letter from Attorney General Holder on Thursday.

    I didn’t not watch or listen to the filibuster and I stand corrected.

    Paul putting his bladder under stress was not in vain.
