In a marathon speech on the floor of the Senate, Ted Cruz (R-TX) is determined to at least make America listen to his crusade against Obamacare.
With a brief interlude for a bedtime story for his daughters.
Cruz has angered much of the GOP with his fight against President Barack Obama's health care law and the potential government shutdown it could cause.
Nevertheless, the Senator is undeterred by the critics.
On Tuesday, he took his edict to the Senate floor in support of his plan to defund Obamacare, saying he would speak "until I am no longer able to stand."
Most experts say Cruz's epic appearance, which has reportedly surpassed the Rand Paul filibuster earlier this year, will not actually block Obamacare.
