Over at LawFare, Benjamin Wittes explains why Senator Rand Paul's filibuster on the issue of drone strikes was nothing more than a publicity stunt. I agree with Wittes. What is more, I expect this kind of paranoid foolishness from the likes of Sen. Paul. But I was appalled by, and call down shame upon, those lefty commentators that applauded his antics. Really people? One does not advance a serious issue by discussing it in unserious ways.
