Paululan Jr. filibusters!

Actually, this is A Good Thing!

I may not agree with Rand Paul on...well, anything, nor his motives in filibustering the nomination of a CIA director with this tangential issue of presidential powers to kill without due process.

But it is a vital issue of civil liberties. It must be raised.

Of course, Paul is doing it for political gain, and will revert to his usual obstructionism for other things, but this  is good.

If only he'd filibuster when the Patriot Act comes up for renewal.  Or when the NDAA has to be reauthorized.  Or when Gitmo funding is renewed.

Still, this is good.
