USA TODAY - It wasn't a filibuster. And according to Sen. Harry Reid, the recent 21-hour talk-a-thon wasn't even informative.
Nonetheless, members of Congress and the American public did get to hear Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, talk about Dr. Seuss, Duck Dynasty and the movie The Shining (or was it Psycho?). His goal was to persuade members of Congress to vote for defunding ObamaCare.
One comedian said that after hearing Cruz ramble on for 21 hours, a government shutdown is looking pretty good.
Another read his own version of a Dr. Seuss book, "The Bore-ax."
