During Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster this evening, Sen. Ted Cruz took the floor to read the entire Saint Crispin’s Day speech from Shakespeare’s play, Henry V.

But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

“I would observe to the senator of Kentucky that those glorious sentiments expressed centuries ago are precisely applicable to the stand here tonight, because it is a stand against all odds,” Cruz concluded. “Indeed, it is a stand against an administration that refuses to acknowledge limits on its power.”
