Rand Paul did nothing more than pull an interesting parliamentary trick to give air to an issue of substance. That may be clever, but it is not heoric. And even if he loses his job because of it, it is not heroic. If Rand Paul had anything interesting to say, then the people would be reading it.
But the people *are* reading it and it is their own words. What Rand Paul should have done, and what any Congressman might do, is to filibuster things that the American people do not know already.
I dare you.
