Republicans block Brennan nomination with a good old fashioned filibuster. The republicans and some democrats are opposing drones, to which I say hurrah! I don't like the drones either, but republicans opposing drones? Topsy Turvy. I understand why Rand Paul opposes drones, but I don't understand why the other republicans are opposing drones. They're usually pro war, pro torture, pro using any means available to kill the "enemy."
