All day I've been fighting the urge to live-blog Rand Paul's filibuster, convinced that the moment I started pouring myself into updates, Paul would stop talking. Well, we're more than 7 and half hours in, and Paul is still going. And not only is he still going, but he's actually eating and drinking at his desk while he holds the floor. That's not the behavior of a guy who's about ready to wrap this up:
I don't know if that's a piece of a power bar, or a fig, or a malt ball, but Rand Paul is in for the long haul. I'm still at PolicyMic's New York office, and have resolved not to leave here until Paul finally yields the floor. If he goes for as long as any of these guys, I could be in serious trouble.
