It’s never wrong to stand up to a bully. In fact I have never found a way to put a bully in his place apart from confronting one until they back down.
Enter the Brennan nomination to be CIA chief, in testimony I still proceedings quite fathom, Attorney General Holder stated:
“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States.”
While our current President has been approaching the Constitution from multiple novel angles, this was flatly outrageous.
Now Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has decided to filibuster the Brennan nomination for CIA head. Not the modern “polite” filibuster, but the actual “I am going to stop this POS by ranting non-stop” kind. Will any of the cowards from the opposition party find the spine to support this confrontation?
