Senator Paul Considers Filibustering the Syria War

On a media call to discuss the war just now, Senator Paul said, “I can’t image that we won’t require 60 votes on this. Whether there’s an actual standing filibuster, I have to check my shoes, and I have to check my ability to hold my water.”

Phone calls to his office are running more than 10 to 1 against intervention.
