Boom! Those are harsh words coming from the always-awesome Brit Hume, who calls lies “whoppers.” His tweet was a hit, and was retweeted 863 times and counting.

As Twitchy reported, Sen. McConnell did finally #StandwithRand during the filibuster yesterday.

But many Twitter users wondered, would he have done so without being shamed and prodded by Mr. Hume?

Brit Hume gets results! He also had some kind words for Sen. Rand.

Not bad, indeed!

    They’d ALL be wise to sincerely get behind Sen. Paul – Dem & Republican! What I saw yesterday & last night is what I call “electable.” Finally someone standing up for us! I’m so sick of the politics in Washington & waiting for the other shoe to drop!

      Agreed, Though difficult for Rand Paul, his efforts did not go unnoticed.

    Brit might be onto something here…
    Maybe we should all send tweets to Harry Reid telling him to keep his butt OFF the floor
    until the Dems are ready to pass a budget

      …how sweet would THAT be?? I wouldn’t mind if Harry Reid kept his butt off the floor for all eternity…what a tragic joke the folks in Nevada who elected him have foisted upon us…geez…

    I am so proud of Paul, Cruz, Lee, and Rubio. I’m also proud of Wyden, although I suspect he and I would never agree on most things. It took guts for him to show up. I’m also thinking I’d like to send Paul a package of Depends for him to wear the next time he filibusters. I’d have loved it if he was still there holding the floor. His filibuster would have been even more amazing if he’d still been talking this morning.

    Rand is your Mondale. Run him in 2016 and lose in 49 states. Until you purge the crazy from the GOP, nothing changes.

    • Finrod Felagund

      You’re so cute. No Democrat has ever won 49 states before and I don’t see that changing any time soon.

        LOL…it might happen, since there are 57 states 😉

      • $24698634

        That’s the point.  Mondale was too far left, Rand too libertarian.

      Bless your heart.

      You lefties purge Joe “just shoot through the front door” Biden. Scary that this man is our emergency president.

      As long as the Dims have so many claiming that SS and Medicare need no reforms, the majority of the crazies are with you.

      • $24698634

        Which “dims” are claiming that?

    • Ben Bollman

      This is a good sign when a lib sounds intimidated and sneers just like you did. That means that we have a chance of winning.

      • $24698634

        I’m not a lib, asshat.  I just think the republicans are disastrous for the country.  But run Christie and you have a chance.  He’s a RINO.

        • Ben Bollman

          Well I know you’re not a libertarian and if it walks like a liberals and talks like a liberal it is either a RINO or a liberal. Either way your opinion means nothing to me.

          • $24698634

            So don’t respond.  Your attempt to label me points out your ignorance.

          • Ben Bollman

            Nah, I can do what I want. Also, if we run Christie it will be the same result as Romney. Both RINOs.

    I highly doubt Brit finds his way to Twitchy, with such a hectic schedule, but if by chance he stumbles on this wonderful piece of cyber real estate, sir…you are doing the people’s work. I have admired your skills for years and while I am no longer a member of the craft, I take great comfort in knowing you are. It is almost a nightly occurrence that after you pontificate on affairs of the nation, my head movies north to south.

    Enjoy your vacation well earned.
