Bernie Sanders' Seven-Hour Filibuster is a Hit

Bernie Sanders grabbed the collective conscience of Netizens a day or so back with a scorching speech against the proposed extension of Bush-era tax-breaks for the top 1%. Today, he filibustered the new tax laws with a 7+-hour speech that is still going on as I type this.

"Bernie Sanders," #filibuster, and #filiBernie are all trending US topics on Twitter.
