"Shortly after Rand Paul’s talking filibuster unexpectedly seized national attention, Bill Kristol came back with his normal comedy routine. ... John McCain and Lindsey Graham were Kristol’s opening act. McCain grumbled about 'wacko birds' and the dang libertarian kids who need to get off his lawn. Graham dismissed Paul’s questions about the limits of presidential power as undeserving of a response, in keeping with his now-infamous quotation, 'Shut up, you don’t get a lawyer!' But for the first time in a long time, the GOP rank-and-file wasn’t laughing along." (03/12/13)
