Green Eggs and Ham

Senator Ted Cruz's filibuster goes well past  Hour-19 as I write this at around 10 AM Toronto time and he is still going strong.   Last night at 8 PM he read "Green Eggs and Ham" to his daughters from the Senate floor as that's  probably the time he usually spends with  them.   I believe he has now beaten all other filibusters done to date.

From BusinessInsider:
During his marathon speech  on the Senate floor Tuesday in opposition to funding the Affordable Care Act in the continuing resolution, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took a break ... to read bedtime stories to his two young girls. 
He said that his two daughters were watching C-SPAN2 at home — he told them to turn on the station at 8 p.m. Cruz read his daughters verses from the Bible. And then he moved on to the Dr. Seuss classic, "Green Eggs and Ham."...........
