As with his filibuster last year, I give Paul full credit for political theater and it keeps him in the public eye towards 2016. It’s also interesting that Paul has recruited former Virginia Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli to take the lead in the case. (Perhaps Cuccinelli is a potential Attorney General in a Paul Administration).
But let’s call this for what it is — a cheap publicity stunt. While one can certainly make an argument against the NSA’s methods of intelligence gathering, Paul’s lawsuit against it is wholly without merit.
