This is something approaching a miracle for me

A politician has done something I actually find inspiring. Yesterday we actually heard the St. Crispin’s Day speech on the floor of the Senate. And people are flocking to Rand Paul’s support. Heck, you’ve got John Cusack, of all people, coming to Paul’s support and asking where the hell the Democrats are, while Salon is shamefacedly reporting that (surprise!) lefties are more likely to take the Nixonian line that murdering people with drones is okay when the President does it. If you don’t believe it, just read the Obama suckups and buttkissers over at HuffPo. Quelle courage!

Meanwhile, the Nixon Obama Justice Department doubles down and declares that Obama “has authority to use drone strikes to kill Americans on US soil”.

We could actually be looking at a historic moment here if Obama backs down and Paul’s challenge to the Police State stands. Go Rand Paul! The guy will, I hope, be a real force for good if he keeps on in this vein.
