Yes, Sen. Rand Paul did take a sip of water sometime into the seventh hour of his epic filibuster to block a vote on John Brennan‚Äôs bid for CIA director. Will it be the ‚Äúcareer-ender‚ÄĚ that it reportedly was for his colleague Marco Rubio? Likely not; however, reporters covering the filibuster found Paul‚Äôs snack quite the distraction from whatever it was he was talking about ‚ÄĒ something about the Constitution.
The press‚Äôs ‚ÄúWhat‚Äôs Rand Paul eating?‚ÄĚ game managed to spread to the public at large.
As fascinating as Sen. Paul‚Äôs snack was, a few were more interested in what was coming out of his mouth, not what was going in it.
