Stop the presses: Sen. Rand Paul eats candy bar, sips water

“OMG! Rand Paul ate a candy bar! That’s worse than Rubio’s sip of water…Right?” Said every network news anchor.

OMG RAND PAUL JUST SIPPED WATER! Alert @cnn! It’s a #CareerEnder!

Yes, Sen. Rand Paul did take a sip of water sometime into the seventh hour of his epic filibuster to block a vote on John Brennan’s bid for CIA director. Will it be the “career-ender” that it reportedly was for his colleague Marco Rubio? Likely not; however, reporters covering the filibuster found Paul’s snack quite the distraction from whatever it was he was talking about — something about the Constitution.

Rand Paul now speaking in between bites of some sort of candy bar. Snickers or something.

Filibuster continues, but Sen. Paul grabs another snack. Hard to tell what he’s eating. Perhaps a small bag of peanuts? #fnr

Rand Paul has been snacking for a while. Earlier I think he had peanut chews. Then either peanuts or raisins.

Rand Paul’s office says it doesn’t know what sort of candy bar he just wolfed down during his #filibuster. Looked like a Snickers.

Rand Paul eating what we believe are Jelly Bellys. Just took sip of water. That can be dangerous during filibuster.

Sen Mark Kirk just brought Rand Paul an apple and a green thermos and sits it on the desk. #filibuster.

— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) March 6, 2013

Kirk’s office says the thermos sent to Paul on the floor was hot tea. Paul just unscrewed thermos and set it on the floor. #filibuster

Paul takes swig of Sen Kirk’s hot tea. #filibuster

Rand Paul eats a piece of chocolate for sustenance, a huge piece of caramel hangs out of his mouth #journalism

The press’s “What’s Rand Paul eating?” game managed to spread to the public at large.

Developing: Rand Paul seems to have moved onto bite sized candy. Sources say it might be M&Ms. No word on if they are peanut or plain.

Bad decision by Rand Paul if it was a Snickers. Peanuts will dehydrate him quicker. #filibuster #riveting #Senate #pointless #whatelseison

I have a Quaker Oats Granola bar in my pocket I forgot to give to my 2 year old. Can someone get it to Rand Paul?

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) March 6, 2013

As fascinating as Sen. Paul’s snack was, a few were more interested in what was coming out of his mouth, not what was going in it.

.@senrandpaul Thanks for your efforts to protect liberty, get answers from WH on using drones against US citizens on US soil. #StandWithRand
