You can watch the filibuster on C-SPAN2 here.

Also, Michelle posted a very appropriate clip in the Grizzly Lounge, given the day’s events.

 

Update: Via Breitbart:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) yielded the floor at 12:40 a.m. EST on Thursday, March 7 after continuing his filibuster of the confirmation of John Brennan as CIA Director for nearly thirteen hours…

Paul cited, as one of his reasons for stopping, the need to use the bathroom. Traditionally, the rules of the Senate do not permit a “talking” filibuster to be sustained if the Senator conducting the filibuster leaves the chamber. He expressed regret that he had not broken the late Sen. Strom Thurmond’s record of over 24 hours, but declared that the effort–in which won support from Senators of both parties–had been worth the effort.

After yielding the floor, Senator Paul tweeted the following:
