Rand Paul: I Decided Against Using Catheter During Filibuster

Asked by Glenn Beck Thursday whether he considered using a catheter during his long filibuster of CIA director nominee John Brennan, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who is a doctor, said he decided against it. 

“I did think about it,” Paul said in an interview. “I’ve put them in before, but I really decided against it.”

Paul ended his filibuster at 12:39 a.m. Thursday, saying, “I’ve discovered there are some limits to filibustering, and I’m going to have to take care of one of those in a few minutes.”
