Matt Drudge is exactly right. Sen. Rand Paul captured the attention of the nation today with his epic (and ongoing) filibuster, and he’s won the support of the usual suspects and some unusual suspects as well.
Sarah Palin and Herman Cain both have tweeted their support; maybe Sen. Ted Cruz will pass along their best wishes as he relays tweets of support.
Proud to #standwithrand since 2009. GOP, we need more courage like this!

As Twitchy reported earlier, Code Pink has thrown its support behind the #filiblizzard and, thanks to the time Paul has given them, has even gotten a little crafty.
