This week's senate filibuster by Rand Paul brought his intellectual, common sense approach to the issues to the forefront for those who had never heard him speak before. On March 7, The Telegraph described Rand Paul's efforts as a "beautiful anti-drone filibuster."
While there were certainly those who questioned the necessity for a filibuster, most people were impressed with the clarity with which Senator Paul spoke to the issues at hand.
Paul calmly and carefully outlined the problem with the Obama Administration's view on the drone issue and how it might impact our civil rights. Although he concluded the filibuster at around 13 hours, he still was holding the attention of his viewing audience with his eloquent speech. (He was also holding it in another sense of the phrase, thus the filibuster ended!)
Senator Rand Paul has won a following across the political spectrum not only for what he did by taking a stand on an important issue related to our constitutional rights, but by what he said. Senator Paul showed America, once again, what it is to be a skilled and artful orator without ever lifting his voice.
We could have listened longer to Rand Paul. There are other people in the political arena, however, who have just worn us out with their words. Their appearances in the news are just a constant "drip, drip, drip." View the enclosed slideshow to see the top five people who really need to just be quiet.
Of course, there are so many more!
