Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is trying to pull a fast one on the American people by claiming that he is filibustering the Patriot Act when he isn't actually filibustering.
What is curious is the support many on the left have given Rand Paul despite his well-known, and well-publicized, stance on issues that are repulsive to progressives and even right-leaning centrists.
It turns out Rand Paul's filibuster was big scam. Sen. Paul has wasted little time implementing the second part of his planned filibuster. He is now trying to cash in with a fundraising letter.
