REAL QUICK OFF THE TOP, TODAY JOHN BRENNAN WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE HIS NOMINATION TO RUN THE C.I.A.

ON FIRMED IN THE SENATE.

SORT OF A NONEVENT AFTER THE RECENT CONFIRP -- CONFIRMATION DRAMA -- WHAT THE WHO?

IT WAS A NONEVENT UNTIL THE --

>> I RISE TODAY TO FILIBUSTER THE NOMINATION TO THE C.I.A.

>> Jon: LOOKS LIKE WE GOT US A GOOD OLD FASHION TALKIE FILIBUSTER, THE KIND OUR

GRANDPARENTS TRIED TO TELL US ABOUT BUT NEVER GOT TO BECAUSE WE WERE TOO BUSY PLAYING JACKS AND TIDDLY

WINKS WITH OUR FRIENDS WAITING FOR OUR CHANCE TO FREEBASE IN THE SHED.

RAND PAUL HAS SENT A LETTER TO ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER ASKING JUST A SIMPLE

QUESTION: CAN THE PRESIDENT USE A DRONE TO TAKE OUT AN AMERICAN CITIZEN ON U.S.

SOIL?

YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD GET A LETTER BACK LIKE, NO, WAY!

HOLDER WRITES HIM BACK A LETTER THAT NEVER DIRECTINGLY ADDRESSING THE QUESTION KIND OF, SORT OF

IMPLIED HYPOTHETICALLY IN THE RIGHT -- YES, WE CAN DO THAT PROBABLY WON'T BUT YES.

SENATOR RAND PAUL TO DRAW ATTENTION TO THE ISSUE OF THE EXECUTION OF EXECUTIVE EXECUTIONS EXECUTED THE

CLASSICAL FILIBUSTER.

I MEAN HE'S OUT THERE TALKING.

THIS ISN'T ONE OF THOSE -- I MEAN HE'S USING THE FILIBUSTER THE WAY IT'S MEANT TO BE USED.
