    I don't know if you actually saw MP Galloway's testimony before the committee, but he handed Norm Coleman's head to him on a platter. Senator Coleman was clearly taken off guard appeared unsettled through the whole of Mr. Galloway's testimony. Clearly, Senator Coleman is unused to being bearded in his own den. I only hope that opposition to the Bush administration, both Democrats and moderate Republicans, follow Mr. Galloway's lead, stiffen their backbones, and start to actively question, and stand up to, the Republican leadership in both the legislative and executive branches.

    As for consequences, one can only hope Senator Coleman is as dedicated to the truth when it comes to those he favors, particularly when it comes to John Bolton's testimony before the Senate Foreign affairs committee.

    Yes and not exactly his 'head on a platter.'

    Question for you? Did you see what Carl Levin did?

    Another: Ahem, in spite of what's happening on Bolton, judges; the Senate still has a working relationship, which is why in these circumstances Levin was the 'lead attacker.'

    One more: You remember Watergate hearings? There was a reason that the lead attackers were Republicans. You DO remember who was toughest on Nixon?

    While you see 'war' with your opposition, some do realize there may well be threats without also.

    Head on a platter? I watched this on the tele and this guy sounded like a blithering idiot, not to mention that he was a friend of Sadaam. This guy was probably loaded on a shitload of single malt and bitter like most Scotsmen.

    He definately attened the DNC school of Argument. His entire arguments consisted of "I'm right, your wrong, and those documents are lies." He came off as a deranged loon. This is the guy who even got kicked out of Britain's Labour Party.

    There you go again...projecting your own inadequacies onto others.

    Why did Norm spend so much time shuffling papers and unwilling to make eye contact with MP Galloway? It was because he knew he was out-classed and out of his depth. Norm was bearded in his own den.

    This is just another case of the administration attempting to destroy any who speak in opposition to its policies. He's already been throught the same thing in Britain, and came out on top. Winning a libel suit based on the same documents Norm's committee cited and winning a seat in Parliament after being pushed out of Blair's Labor party. BTW, this was done because he called Dubbyuh and Blair "wolves" for pursuing war with Iraq.

    Carl Levin didn't do much of anything. And it's a pity Republicans have lost their independence since the '70's. Now, they're just another buch of unprincipled, oportunistic scumbags who would sell their own mother's ass on the streets for a vote.

    Since they attained a majority in Congress in '94, it's only taken them about 10 years to become more corrupt than the Democrats did in 40 years.

    Bully you are in denial. Do not be surprised if the Senate acts on this.
