As CSPAN pointed out to viewers during its coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) speech decrying the Affordable Care Act, his speech is not a filibuster because he is procedurally limited by a vote scheduled to take place at mid-day on Wednesday. Cruz, who began speaking at 2:41 p.m. ET on Tuesday, was still speaking Wednesday morning.

Desperation is a stinky cologne, and Ted Cruz’s cheap publicity stunt reeks of desperation.
