Clowns
If you were thinking Sen. Ted Cruz (R-2016) was looking awfully eager to wrap that not-filibuster up at noon, you might be right. Sen. Reid kept reminding him that he could continue his speech for another hour—but defunding Obamacare, while important, isn't nearly as important as the very important meeting Cruz had lined up beforehand.
If you're wondering when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will wrap up his marathon non-filibuster floor speech in opposition to funding the Affordable Care Act, sometime before 1 p.m. EDT seems like a good bet. According to RushLimbaugh.com, that's when the Texas senator will appear on Rush Limbaugh's radio program.
The two are expected to share their tips on how to get paid to talk for long stretches of time without saying or accomplishing anything in particular.

Really, though: Rush Limbaugh? That was the best you could do, Cruz?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
