  •  Yes THIS is how the filibuster is supposed to work (0+ / 0-)

    CNN is covering it -- sort of:  
    TRENDING: Rand Paul's #filiblizzard filibuster

    Holder narrowed the list of those possible extraordinary circumstances Wednesday. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, pressed Holder whether he believed it would be constitutional to target an American terror suspect "sitting at a cafe" if the suspect didn't pose an imminent threat.

    "No," Holder replied.

    But he also said the government has no intention of carrying out drone strikes inside the United States. Echoing what he said in a letter to Paul, he called the possibility of domestic drone strikes "entirely hypothetical."

    Paul ... said he understands that due process doesn't apply to combat zones overseas.

    "But when people say, 'Oh, the battlefield's come to America' and 'the battlefield's everywhere,' 'the war is limitless in time and scope,' be worried, because your rights will not exist if you call America a battlefield for all time," the senator said.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
