From CSPAN:

Sen. Sanders Holds 8 1/2 hour Tax Cut Filibuster

12/10/2010

Yesterday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), wrapped up an 8 ½ hour speech, or what his office called a “tax cut filibuster” on the Senate floor opposing the White House and Republican compromise on tax cuts and unemployment benefits. He began his speech saying, “I am simply here today to take as long as I can to explain to the American people the fact that we have got to do a lot better than this agreement provides.”
