Paul Cleared Filibuster with McConnell

National Journal reports Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) "had lined up the tacit approval of the GOP leadership" for his filibuster earlier this week of John Brennan's nomination to be CIA Director.

"For a politician who earned his stripes as a political outsider, Paul's filibuster performance and planning demonstrated his aptitude at the inside D.C. game."

Meanwhile, RNC Chair Reince Priebus told the Des Moines Register, "I think it was completely awesome. I was excited about it myself. I couldn't go to bed. I'm still excited about it."
