Today Rand Paul turns 54, and to help celebrate who is perhaps Liberty’s most beloved US Senator, we present you Rand’s famous thirteen-hour filibuster of the Patriot Act reauthorization. This contributor remembers the very day of this momentous occasion. Notably, how I came to be curled up in front of an iPad streaming YouTube on the bed of my San Antonio hotel room eating (gratuitous amounts of) snacks for nine hours straight.
Safe to say I was not left wanting by the Senator’s performance.
Pour one out for my boy Rand today- it’s been a long year.
