Sen. Rand Paul: “My filibuster was just the beginning”

A moving opinion piece written by Senator Paul.   Here’s one fact that I bet you didn’t know, and I quote:

“At about 6:30 p.m., something extraordinary happened.  Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who has been recovering from a stroke, came to the floor to give me something. I was not allowed to drink anything but water or eat anything but the candy left in our Senate desks. But he brought me an apple and a thermos full of tea — the same sustenance Jimmy Stewart brought to the Senate floor in the movie “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”  That was a moment I will never forget.”
