    the talking filibuster is not about the result...that is going to be generally the same regardless which side is supposed to show up.

    The talking filibuster is about ownership.  Create meaningful transparency for obstruction.  Ensure the minority is forced to spotlight that reason for overriding majority rule.

    This is good in my opinion.  Even when Dems have to do it.

    A boring floor vote will not achieve the goal of forcing transparency, as the media will not be forced to cover it.

    Why would we not want Rand Paul to speak and show his insanity. (See Wayne La Pierre if you don't believe me).

    Sunshine is the best disinfectant.  This goes halfway, but is not the most effective my humble opinion...
