Senator Norm Coleman is a Such a Buster

Great Moments in US Senate History: George Galloway Prepares to Anally Probe Norm Coleman (2005).

News reports indicate that incumbent Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman’s lead over “comedian” Al Franken has slimmed to a mere 5 votes. A canvassing board undergoing a recount is deciding whether to count previously discounted ballots.

Though I am no fan of Franken and his condescending, pop-liberalism, Norm Coleman is a major stiff. I wonder if he is squirming in his chair as badly during the recount as he did when George Galloway verbally shattered him in a 2005 Senate hearing. Coleman is an intellectual Mr. Glass.

Watch the video of Galloway dancing on Coleman’s head when you are feeling pathetic, because it will let you feel better about yourself.

The Senate was investigating the corruption around the UN’s Oil-for-Food program (what a perfect title for US ambitions in the Arab world). Coleman accused Galloway of having financial ties with Saddam Hussein. This show was just another example of the US ignoring the true crime — the murder of over one million Iraqis by the sanctions regime — because it implicates its own culpability.

  2. I remember seeing excerpts from this at the time – NOT the way we are accustomed to seeing anyone speak in US senate hearings. Refreshingly direct.

  3. Watching Christopher Hitchens utterly destroy Galloway in direct debate a couple of years back was an absolute delight. In earlier days, after a whipping like that, a sympathetic friend would hand Galloway a pistol with a single bullet in it and he’d slink away to a back room somewhere to be done with it.

  4. I am not sure what he is thinking with all of this. So much has to change with his thinking so much here. His attitude has to change with it too. Make things better for the future. Air conditioner Toronto

  5. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.|
