Jon Stewart Praises Rand Paul Filibuster: 'He's Using The Filibuster The Way It's Meant To Be Used' (VIDEO)

"It looks like we got us a good old-fashioned, actual talky filibuster."

On Wednesday, Jon Stewart couldn't help but marvel at Rand Paul's filibuster of John Brennan's confirmation, given that we so rarely see an honest-to-god filibuster these days. What's more, Stewart gave Paul a thumbs up on his position: "I can't say that I agree with Rand Paul about everything, but as issues go, drone oversight is certainly one worth kicking up a fuss for."

Of course, as Stewart went on to explain, congress doesn't really need Rand Paul's help to not get something done. Take the sequester, for example... or universal pre-school...

Watch part one above where Stewart focuses on Rand Paul's dramatic filibuster, and part two below where he chastises the opposition to high-quality kindergarten education.
